Free CAD software
Problem is they do not have trials anymore, and I can't afford such a program.
So I'm looking for a nice free CAD program to replace it.
- It should have 3D capabilities, to make it easier for me to understand what I'm doing.
- Constraints, so I can define dimensions and features and have the other features adjust to it
- Boolean and Splines support, but no need for fancy tools.
- Drafting, to make the finished blueprint.
It doesn't need any simulation, rendering, analytics, or management tools, and should, before anything else, be easy to learn.
Right now I have found a number of programs, but I have no idea about how to figure out which is "better" for me.
I will be testing them while waiting for a possible reply, so maybe I'll be the one to find a nice one :) But PLEASE don't hesitate to reply if you have any suggestions!
The ones I have found are:
BRL-CAD, the US Army's open-source CAD Program
T-FLEX CAD Student Edition
Anyway, hope we can get a dialog going and find the best free hobby starter's CAD software for tech and craft :)
