Does it matter which one they use? Just use the one you can afford or prefer to use.

 

 

Depending on what you're doing even something simple like Tinkercad or something more fully-featured like FreeCAD would be your best bet.

The products are essentially same, its just toolsets that are different depending on what you need to do with the thing. So rather than use what LMG uses, you should check the site against what you are trying to use it for.

Solidworks Standard give you most basic tools. If you plan to use electrical routing you need Premium. If you want to do electrical drawings you need the module Electrical which also require at least Premium. Molding plastic is another module for advance stuff. As someone else said pricing wise if you just plan to do basic stuff, Autodesk Fusion is free for hobbyist vs up to 3,000$-15,000$ for solidworks.

I'm going to second the Fusion 360 comment. There are a ton of great tutorial videos online. John at NYCCNC on youtube, has a ton of great videos that teach people about it, while he is also transitioning from SW. It's free to use, and is a complete CAD/CAM package. Can't beat that.

You can use SketchUp software as an alternative to CAD. 

SketchUp is essentially same as CAD (Computer Assisted Drawing). They have free online version besides paid Pro and 2D versions.
