    I'm looking for a pretty basic drafting type program for my macs. Way back in the day I used to have some sort of CAD program. It was pretty basic. You set the grid size and could draw lines, shapes whatever. Pretty much I want digital graph paper with the ability to draw on it.

    It's mainly for making some house/building designs go from my mind to something tangible.

    One of the 3d walk through simulators would be sweet too, but I probably wouldn't invest the time to make it actually work.

    Any help?

    I know there are all kinds of programs out there... I'm looking for a recommendation for one. Everyone that I try sucks, it's either way to complicated or for like 3d graphics/animations.

    I really like EazyDraw.

    http://www.eazydraw.com/

    I use it for math test illustrations but you can do all sorts of technical drawing with it.
