Default Stage Designers: What software do you use?

I signed up to be a stage designer for my local IDPA match in December.

I have a decent idea sketched on my notepad but I need a way to get it printed and all that.

What software programs are out there that I can use?

Thanks!

I've used google sketchup, but it's took me a while to build the props and get everything arranged. I also don't think google supports that program anymore...

The word and powerpoint files at this site contain a good variety of targets and props that can be used to layout your stages in word:

Good luck! I always thought about how much reloading I could have done while designing stages... it's can be a black hole for time!

Got it thanks. Looks really good

I do IDPA and USPSA stages as well, adapting stages between sports comes pretty naturally
