MCAD software this time around (I used Visio on the last major
project, if you can believe it).
I'm a software guy (25 years), and I'm trying to improve my mechanical
engineering capabilities... :-)
I found a number of commercial CAD packages out there (via Google)
that have watered-down free versions. Some
are 2-D only (not really sure what they mean by that?), some are time-
limited trialware, etc. I'd like to settle on one package rather than
having to invest time learning one only to abandon it for another.
Can anyone recommend CAD software that is more than just a toy, and is
I note that Revell's VEXplorer robot kit has SolidWorks inside... such
a kit could be useful for prototyping - is the version of SolidWorks
included likely to be too watered down to be useful in the long-term?
Thanks in advance.
