Is there a better software package for drawing shapes to precise measurements?  I only used AutoCAD because it was ready at hand.  I'm open to suggestions of alternatives.

Cool. I don't know much about CAD, but for PDF's of this nature that I have<br>created, I have used PostScript to create the image, and then used the<br>free-for-non-commercial-use ghostScript utility to convert it to PDF.<br>http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/<br><br>By the way, perhaps that page should also make mention of the Giant<br>(cardboard) and Gargantuan (foam-rubber) pieces and their relative<br>pip-count/size. I believe that they are both 8x scale, but I am not certain<br>of the proportions. I don't think that they were scaled up by the  11/32" &<br>5/8" proportions, but rather just by multiplying the dimensions of the<br>standard pieces.<br><br>- Dan<br><br>> -----Original Message-----<br>> From: icehouse-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx<br>> [mailto:icehouse-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Ryan Hackel<br>> Sent: Friday, February 10, 2006 12:01 PM<br>> To: icehouse@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx<br>> Subject: [Icehouse] Zero-pip pyramids<br>><br>><br>><br>><br>> I just
