    There isnt any.

    But you can try qcad .And if you find it good,please let me know.

    One good thing is that all commands etc are similar to autocad.




    regards

    Yeah, most companies I've worked for don't use AutoCad/Autodesk anymore. It's all NX, Catia, Solidworks, or ProE. NX, <strike>Solidworks,</strike> <edit>CATIA</edit> and ProE are all available for Linux. Some are even available for certain types of Unix. I personally use NX 5 at work. I would have to say NX and Catia are the most powerful, but also, the most expensive.

    Sorry, the forums seem to be glitchy today.

    only commercial mcads available for linux are varicad and nx. catia is available for some kind of unix but it doesn't work in linux. solidworks (my favourite) is unfortunately only available in windows.

    NX is pretty decent though. It' more capable than SW. I would say it's on par with Catia.

    Not that I know of for Solidworks.

    Catia had Unix support prior to V6. Dunno why they only support windows now.
