I don't use any of the listed software in my day job - it's a ridiculously expensive niche software.

That said I use AutoCAD both to supplement my day job and for home projects. I've played with fusion 360, but I'm far from good at it. Alternatives to AutoCAD that I use are ProgeCAD and DraftSight. Both use similar commands and can read/write dxf/dwg files and are likely a bit cheaper that AutoCAD. Everything I do at work is 3D modeling, for home projects, I simply don't have a need. I do everything in 2D at home.
I believe the appropriate metaphor here involves a river of excrement and a Native American water vessel without any means of propulsion.
