Tracing 3D models is definitely the wrong way to go, but so is turning your world upside down with a whole new CAD system. The AutoCAD tools mentioned, though a little cumbersome, will give you a huge boost; Bill's article would be a great starting point. The "QuickDraw" feature of our AutoSolids product would also solve the problem, and much more gracefully. Either way, AutoCAD is quite capable of 3D work, thousands of users will tell you the same.
