    Hi DazHat,

    I was hoping to hear some answer to this as well before purchasing.

    I tend to get the plans from the architects, then use photoshop/pixelmator/boxysvg to edit them and convert for use on shac. Basically any graphic package that can output a png, jpp or svg format. I haven't done any 3d plans at present.

    Depending on what you get in the first place, Inkscape could be a good place to start.

    Not sure if this is what you are after...I used Smartdraw for my images in HomeGate. Worked well for me. A couple of examples attached...This is the background and then I add the components etc.
