Can someone please suggest a source for a free CAD program to download. I think there was one on the PCWorld monthly disc some months back but I haven't been able to find it yet.

Are you wanting one for commercial or educational use?

Check out this NZ CAD blog by RobiNZ (http://rcd.typepad.com/), and do a search within his blog for a free CAD program. I think Google has a basic CAD type program called sketch up...

There are also open source CAD software, though for specific purposes, e.g. circuits, mechanical, conceptual, etc. These can be found here... (http://osswin.sourceforge.net/#cadsoftware)

Just interested - have enrolled for evening class for CAD and am looking for something to put on my computer and use. Thanks

There was a useful PF1 thread only last month about CAD programmes.

My brain has gone to mush tonight re posting links, so will just say look at threads started by rob_on_guitar.
It's "Any one using floorplan/map software?" dated 21/01/2008.
