software CAD

Hi evrybody,

I’m a new Linux user and I decided to change my pc OS from Windows to Suse. I installed openSuse 11.1 and I found it very nice. My problem is that I want to use mechanical drawing softwares with this new OS but I don’t know which programm I have to install.
Do you know if exist a opensource 3D mechanical modeller?

Thank you for your patience.
bye

  • VariCAD may fit your requirements, but it’s a bit expensive (maybe focused
    to professional environment).

  • IntelliCAD has a list of software that you could also find useful:

  • Wikipedia has another list to compare capabilities and licensing:

one or more of the following should be helpful…at least 16 different
programs (some free, some commercial) are mentions in just one of these:

What about ARCAD CAAD, which is available as an evaluation version in the packman repo?

im an architect… i have tried arcad… its a really good program… i dont use it because i have to present plans for construction permissions in .dwg format (weird i know…) so i use bricscad 9 with wine… and recently have tested autocad 2008 using playonlinux which install a wine version with DIB engine and it improves performance a lot… i also use blender for 3d images rendering with yafaray… best software ever…!
