Found this (http://code.google.com/p/heekscad/) and this (http://code.google.com/p/heekscnc/) on the CNC4Free site

HeeksCAD and HeeksCNC Opensource CAD and CNC software.

No idea how good it is but if you are on a tight budget it might be woth a look

Regards, Jeff.

it looks interesting to say the least. As soon as I upgrade the ram in my laptop I'm going to give it a try.

Should be called Geeks CAD, don't mind having to learn a new program to get advanced features in a program but when you have to jump thru hoops just to draw simple shapes it defeats the object.

The idea of any program is to assist you to get a finished drawing not make the program into another task.

Well it is free and opensource so forgive it its shortcomings. I'm sure no-one expects MastercamX3 in Solidworks at this price.
