Caddie Professional

Having been a KUHLMANN drawing board user in the 80’s I felt safe in the sense that I wouldn't have to adjust to the new technology “Computers”. We upgraded to CADDIE 5 Professional and used the programme until the hard drive of the computer gave up and I was forced to upgrade. Thank You CADDIE for an excellent drawing programme. Then I was introduced to the DOS version of CADDIE.
