RE: [ossig] CAD Questions



Three years back I was looking around for a CAD program in Linux. I
remember reading a not-so-rosy review about LinuxCAD. I don't know if
the original debate is still there, but check it out at
http://www.linuxapps.com/?page=vote&cid=208

If I remember correctly, you need to buy separate plug-ins for
importing/exporting formats and even printing! The total cost is far
more expensive that the base cost. If you really want to get things
done, those plug-ins are actually essential. 

AFAIK, there are no 'professional' CAD program in Linux, at least not
open source ones. 

Just my 2 cents' worth.


Yours truly,
Hanxue

you can try LinuxCAD (2&3D) or QCad (2D) but are payware.
