It is available free here:

We should of course then also include  FreeCAD an open source cross platform 3d parametric modeller.

For an example of what it can do, a model of a Jeep and a tutorial for creating the Jeep body

I've also used this one.

One additional advantage for Linux users is that it is open source and runs natively in Linux.

Yes ! I use that one almost exclusively now !

Hi Clivel, do you personally use that 3D freecad you link in your earlier post?

If so how easy is it compared to say Solidworks 2005 or 2007.

Anyone else got any recommendations and experiences on using various free cad software,I'd be interested to hear your views.

And do any of the freeware options out there include animations of mechanical assemblies?......OZ.
