I've been using it to lay out PV panels on a roof. As you can group
things and copy and paste them to duplicate, it can be quite quick to
bash out a design. Also cute is that all this can be done in the same
document that describes the technical details of the system.

I'm sure that real CAD would be better for us, but I'm still waiting to
find time to choose a package that meets our needs.
Even then, the CAD vector output needs to be imported into Scribus which
can be a challenge. There is certainly something to be said for making
it easy to do simple CAD in Scribus.
