    I am after a cheap easy to use CAD programme for me to produce simple building floorplans etc. Metric measurements.
    Any advice would be welcome, please.
    TIA

    If you're after something really simple, you could try TinkerCAD (https://www.tinkercad.com) or SketchUp (https://www.sketchup.com) - both are free.

    They wouldn't be suitable for technical drawings, but may be handy to lay things out and mock up designs. They're really easy to use though.

    If you want something that is a fully fledged CAD package, take a look at Fusion 360 which is free for hobbyists (although they don't make this too clear - you need to activate this once downloaded). There's a steeper learning curve, but it's a very good piece of software:
