CAD Freeware? - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I'm looking for a CAD freeware to create one 3D design for an electronics enclosure. It has to be capable of handling one of the following file types:
Pro-Engineer, Solid Works, AutoCAD, .STL, .STP, .IGS

Hi!
You might check out the free version of Alibre: www.alibre.com . They give away free licenses to a limited version of their program.

Good Luck!

Not exactly what you're looking for, but I've found this software to be very handy.

http://www.download.com/Free-DWG-Viewer ... ag=lst-0-1

It's a free DWG viewer, supports CAD, Iges, dwg, dxf and more. Somewhat related to this post. Hope it helps somebody. I use it every day.

If you work regularly on 3D designs i will suggest using solidworks. It is expensive though.
