Free CAD Program

Hi Guys,

Found this link http://sourceforge.net/projects/fidocadj/ to a FREE CAD program on another forum site.

It seems to do what it says - and it even includes symbols for TUBES/VALVES ! :thumbsup

Moved to software room...

Pretty Inkscape-ish. There's a thread over here with some .svg libraries for most components. Having the whole thing packed together is nice indeed...

Too bad it doesn't include a netlist feature though. The site says "no simulation", but it would also be helpful for electrical rules debugging... :roll:

I mean, well, it's graphic again... :mrgreen: Thanks for pointing it out!

Thanks for moving it. In my eagerness to share it with everyone, I accidentally dropped it in the wrong section.

For ONCE, I wasn't making mischief :twisted: (I must be slipping !)
