Best Software to Design a Symbol from Scratch?


Recommended Posts

Assuming price and application knowledge is not an obstacle, what's the best software to use for creating symbols to then be used in Chief X12?  SolidWorks? or ...

Assuming price is somewhat of an obstacle, but application knowledge is present, what's the best software to use for creating Chief symbols?  Fusion 360? or ...

Sure there is Sketchup, however, thinking ahead and knowing that modification of a symbol will be needed, the ability to create components and then work in layers, enabling various derivatives of a symbol to be created - without always starting essentially from scratch - is using Sketchup realistic, or - over time - it just takes up too much valuable time to justify it's low cost?
