Software for simple 2D technical drawings?


This may be a very newbie question, but I need to draw many profiles/diagrams that would be something like this:

enter image description here

I images I need to make would usually be simpler than that, but I need to have a 45° angle view, like the isometric (iso) view in sketch up.

What software should I use to achieve this? What software do people use for this? I love SketchUp, but the lines always look so bad when you export to 2D. I've used LayOut 3, but I'm not sure that's the correct software for the job.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Does anybody know specifically in which software such an image was created with?

For very simple 2D CAD-style drawing like this, you could use a vector drawing app such an Illustrator or Inkscape.

I am not recommending this for CAD in general or indeed anything more complex than the example; more if this was a one off job and you already had these tools to hand.
