    Does anyone on here know of any freeware/ shareware / cheap enough for a broke college student to afford of Solidworks and a decent CAD program?

    Sketchup sadly won't work. I'm doing engineering drafting, so mechanics and what not.
    Sketchup is a bit too simplistic for what i'm gonna be doing.

    i'm still rocking my ibook g4. don't see too great of a need to lose it till my warranty expires in may. so i'm waiting till leopard and i find out if i get a job for next year.

    I have access to ArchiCAD does anyone know if it does more then just architecture.

    As soon as they get OpenGL and Direct3D support working in Parallels, I'll be rocking Solidworks on this bitch. It's not worth the effort to boot into bootcamp though. I just keep my CAD work on the desktop machine for now. Shouldn't be long before I can run it in Parallels. :coold:

    At least Solidworks released Edrawings viewer for OS X so I can peruse models and assemblies when people email them to me.
