#226 TIPS: LDD or Stud.io?

It's Sunday, and today's discussion is not about techniques, but design softwares. They are great to use to design MOCs, as you have access to every piece in its available colour and can build without limits or having to actually buy the bricks yourself.

Personally, I first learnt on LDD, and use that for all my posts and MOCs due to its simplicity and ease of use. I then import the files into Stud.io to make use of its built-in rendering software. Unfortunately, LDD no longer receives support and updates from LEGO, so has slowly been falling behind. A recent and unexpected update did come out for LDD this past week, but many AFOLs have reported it removes many bricks and adds nothing new, so I haven't dared updated mine yet!

So which design software do you use? Why do you use it, and do you use two different ones like I do? Let me know in the comments below!
