    I like Corel. Some use Inkscape. There are many others out there though. Just make sure which ever one you go with you can save or export as a DXF. Not all versions of Corel allow that.
     
  3. corel draw graphic suite x8 ? or is there a cheaper one out there ?

    That's the cheapest one yet. It works okay "for the price" but it's no Corel. But if you're new to programs like this, it's okay to start with Inkscape. Corel has a lot more bells and whistles but if you don't know how to use them there's no point in paying for them yet.
