Closed Auto Cad like program needed Tags: CAD Apps Last response: February 6, 2012 11:33 PM in Applications Share Combat Wombat February 6, 2012 2:53:43 AM Howdy Partners!! Wombat here, I got a little project I would like to take up... It all started with me wanting a smick looking gaming chair/body enclosure, now I cant source any in Australia, so I tough I may as well build one, I have two cert 3's in graphical design, and I'm pretty handy with a welder. So to start with the project I would like to draw up a 3d Model of the chair which I would like to create.... It would look similar to this: http://www.google.com.au/imgres?q=ultimate+gaming+chair... Now I have taken allot of things into account, my question today is: What free Autocad like software is there "these days" that I could use. (I'm know autocad back to front) I'll need something that I can project dimensions off.. Is ProgeCAD any good? Is there anything better? Open to suggestions Thanks Wombat, (I give best answers) More about : auto cad program needed Best solution totalknowledge February 6, 2012 2:18:57 PM http://sourceforge.net/projects/free-cad/ http://www.cademia.org/frontend/index.php?sub=29 look like the top contenders. ssddx February 6, 2012 3:36:31 PM http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-cad-program.h... another option is to get a trial version of one of the bigger versions. perhaps autocad offers a trial? this would probably be the quickest option since you already know the in-and-outs of it.

The project could take a while depending on when I want to start production... so it would only expire, thanks though!
