Technical illustration best tools

by mz7dyj Fri Nov 18, 2016 2:15 am

Hi,

I am a beginner in technical illustration....
Which are the best tools, beside Solid Works Composer and Catia Composer?
Maybe Adobe Photo and Adobe Illustrator?
What else?

Thank you!

I think Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and fundamental.

I'm not a big fan of Adobe—I wish there was an alternative—but I think they're still the most fully-featured and widely-used pixel and vector editors respectively.

What other tools are available for this particular job?

The standard Illustration platform for Technical Illustration in the military fields is generally ISODraw. Not the most intuitive, but the more you use it, the more powerful it can be.
