    Default Looking for a professional DAO software

    Hello,

    my girlfriend is an architecte and she'd like to work with Linux.

    So I'm looking for a "free" (or cheap) software to make schemas and 2D projects. No matter if it's really "basic", I'm just looking for something that works on OpenSuse first.

    Do you know a software to make this kind of stuff, please ?

    Hi
    Have a look at qcad: http://www.qcad.org/

    It's in the education repository.

    hi Balika73
    I am architect too
    I can suggest you look at
    1. cycas cad (if your native language uses Latin letters) it has problems
    with encoding because of old gtk
    http://cycas.de/
    2. for second you can look at medusa4 from cad-scroer
    http://www.cad-schroer.com looks good
    3. if you ok with German you can look at arcad, also it have english
    version. But I did not found where I can download it.
    4. octree looks very good but I could not run it. I was trying in 11 and
    11.1 (it still in beta)
    http://www.octree.de/
    5. Sweet Home 3D
    you can run it from packman repo
    but do not expect much from it
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/sweethome3d/
    ~>sudo zypper in SweetHome3D
    install it if you have packman repo
    6. wait for BricsCAD
    http://www.bricsys.com/en_INTL/bricscad/index.jsp
    it should be good intellicad-based (it means it almost like autocad)
    http://www.bricsys.com/en_INTL/bricscad/index.jsp
    look at penguin
    and please feed back in their forum "linux" section at "new version" topic,
    if you want it.

    I am waiting for it.
    Before it will be available try it in virtualmachine (virtualbox for examle)
    in windows (or with wine, but in wine it very slow. wine is not a choice for
    CAD) free 30 day version is available to download from their site. AFAIK you
    can use it longer by request. academic version is free.
