Not sure what the OP's original intent is. If it is making traditional plans to build balsa plans from, then a simple 2D CAD program is all that is needed. Easier to learn, and use. Personally I use DevCAD as the tile printing works GREAT, and it also has a CAM piece that I use for my CNC machine.
If the OP is interested in making molds, and such.. yea, then 3D is needed.

For 3D I agree with vtdiy, Sketchup is the way to go before plunking down any serious cash. You can also get a 3D CAM plugin over on the Phlatforum for Sketchup
