    CAD for Linux

    This may be the wrong place to post, so tell me if it is.
    I've begun using AutoCAD for university, which is one of few programs that doesn't seem to have a Linux equivalent. Does anyone know about an open source CAD program? or if there is one in the works?

    I know nothing about CAD...

    Here are some links to get you started:
    http://freshmeat.net/search/?q=CAD&s...&Go.x=0&Go.y=0

    Always always search freshmeat!

    And you *must* search sourceforge too!

    It looks similar to AutoCAD Lite, which is probably the most you could get on a home computer, without paying thousands of dollars in licensing fees.
    AutoCAD also has 3D rendering though, while QCAD is 2D.

    dunno how much money you wanna spend, but i think CATIA is available for linux, too

    there is one running on solaris (might work with other nixes): CADDS

    but both are expensive. if you find good links to linux CAD systems, please post them here:

    cheers
