I'd just start using Blender for some project (that's exactly what I did some time ago). Just configure it to have 1 Blender unit == 1 meter (or feet).

There are lots of free tutorials (including video tutorials) all over the Internet - just start doing it and after a while you'll get some speed.

IMO the best way of learning is doing.

Yeah i think that this is the best choice for me!BUT i have to ask something like how can i import files from bricscad and staff.Things that i do not know!So any help will be great!thanks –  gabriel Apr 17 '12 at 11:01
    
@gabriel, here's a result of a quick googling: blendermama.com/… I've never used BricsCAD myself - can't give you any real advices on that. –  Serge Broslavsky Apr 18 '12 at 8:54
    
Ok, i have already seen that!But really does not help me!I do not know which is the problem!But, even if i manage to do that (i have managed in the past ) the thing that i surely want is importing dwg/dxf and then the polylines are imported, should be ready for extrude with blender!In my experience i have worked with 3ds max and when i import dwg then i dont have to redraw the lines but i am able to extrude or layer them.So, anybody about it? THANKS –  gabriel Apr 18 '12 at 9:10
