Well I couldn't help my self. I d/l'ed the above ^^ program ^^.
Looks great. I just installed it(used fake info for registration.
Don't need to buy stuff from them.) and looked around.
I can post pics if I get around to modeling something.

So I finally got around to messing with the tutorials in
DesignSpark Mechanical. Here is a pic a cube I made via the tut's .
So, yeah, I'm liking this CAD program. So far easy to learn
and I have only exp. in OpenScad which is very different.

If you have any educational connections, AutoCad will give you any full version that you want. These include full 2D and 3D capabilities. Printing with the educational versions is a bit more limited than with the commercial versions but not by much. Solidworks is my favorite for 3D (very pricey) but I really like AutoCad for 2D and you can't beat free for a price!

+another on sketchup
The learning curve on this program is very short/fast and the operations are very intuitive.
