    Found this and this 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

    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.
