Default Re: Best Free CAD Software?

I use turbo cad LE (learning edition)
it's basically an older version that the turbo cad company (IMSI) have released free for personal use.

it's a little old but still good, and it's not restricted in any ways so you can still draw orthographic/isometric/polar with the grids and stuff to aid.
also does both metric and imperial measurements, and a variety of paper sizes.

I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
