AutoCAD or ArchiCAD ~ Is one preferable?

13 years ago

I've hired a recent school of architecture graduate to "draw" blueprints I have of house I want to build in either AutoCAD or ArchiCAD. . The goal is to then be able to get proposals from builders to determine a budget (for land).

He's able to place the drawings in either AutoCAD or ArchiCAD. Is one preferable or are they both widely used. Can saved files be opened in both?

Thanks from someone who's excited to hopefully make a dream finally come true!
