    Has anyone test-driven KeyCreator? They used to be Cadkey, and I believe they spun off from Mastercam years ago. I'd be interested to see some opinions. They a local to me in MA

    Thanks! I just downloaded FreeCAD and it looks pretty good. I'll check out Alibre too!

    My son uses free cad for 3d printing, I looked at it... very poor interface. Very tough to use compared to other more polished tools.

    YMMV

Granted, that's not a lot of money but it's a lot more than free and my wife will start "talking" about how much this hobby is costing and how I'm making parts for free for all my friends, etc, etc. Is there a decent CAD package (don't care about the CAM side and adaptive tool paths) that anyone could recommend as an alternative?
    If you don't need CAM, then why do you need CAD ? People did drawings for a hundred years. A good draftsman's work will shame even the best computer drawings. You can even buy drafting tools for pretty cheap now, since no one wants them.

    And it's an enjoyable skill.
