In moving about their site, I don't see a way to actually download the program. At least, it is not intuitive...do I have to sign up for a newsletter first.?

Did you try a search of instructables? This was a forum topic recently

Free 3D CAD software forum topic

This is assuming you meant 3D modelling-type CAD software. There is also other types of CAD, like circuit design etc...

Hmmmm...SketchUp, I've seen that before on Call for Help (computer help show). It's really simple and easy to use. Thanks.
