I need some part cut out of acrylic and i sent my hand drawn pics to a few laser cutting company's the quotes for cutting were not bad around 80 , But they also wanted to charge me another 90 pounds for producing .dxf files which shocked me they were charging around 45 pound an hour i found www.airoboticsltd.com and the do the same service at 10/hour and to have the drawings done only cost me 10 .saved me alot of money and only had to wait 24hours for.

check out draft sight and do it for free. 
cadding stuff is much better than hand drawing as it lets you check part fit and copy paste and build assemblies from detailed components.  many companies provide cad drawings of components such as boards, nuts & bolts on line that you can download.

It's free 2d cad software.  Lots of tutorials on line.  fairly straightforward to use.  Makes dxf or dwg (autocad) format drawings. I work at an engineering firm and this is what we use to get parts made in house or to send out to a machine shop.
