free CAD design tools - 2D/3D modelling programs

Prospector - free stuff

Free CAD software

There is no such thing as free Solidworks or Autocad / Inventor / Revit from Autodesk. But there are many CAD packages that you can download and use without paying a dime.

CAD tools:

3D Crafter
3D Craftera real-time 3D modeling and animation tool that incorporates an intuitive drag-and-drop approach to create 3D models. Complex models can be constructed from simple 3D primitives, or created using 3D Crafter's Shape Building Tools. Modeling tools are provided to deform, sculpt, and paint 3D shapes. comment
Blender 2.90.1 updated
free and open source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline-modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation. comment
BRL-Cad
a powerful open source cross-platform solid modeling system that includes interactive geometry editing, high-performance ray-tracing for rendering and geometric analysis, a system performance analysis benchmark suite, geometry libraries for application developers, and more than 30 years of active development. comment
Cadstd lite 3.6.7
Simple and easy to use 2D computer aided design (CAD) program. 1 comment
FreeCAD
an open-source parametric 3D modeler made primarily to design real-life objects of any size. Parametric modeling allows you to easily modify your design by going back into your model history and changing its parameters. comment
gCAD3D 2.46.16
3D modelling tool with integrated 3D-OpenGL viewer. Supports import and export from.to Step, Iges, VRML, DXF, SVG ... comment
K3D
3D modeling and animation software. It combines flexible plugins with a visualization pipeline architecture, making K-3D a versatile and powerful tool for artists. comment
LeoCAD 0.83.2
LeoCADCAD program that uses bricks similar to those found in many toys (like LEGO). Currently it has a library of more than 1000 different pieces. comment
LibreCad
a feature-packed and mature 2D-CAD application. comment
NanoCAD 5.0
a professional grade CAD design tool. It has a familiar interface, powerful drafting and design tools, native DWG compatibility, and an open API. comment
Openscad
free to use software for creating solid 3D models. Not an interactive modeller. Instead it is something like a 3D-compiler that reads in a script file that describes the object and renders the 3D model from this script file. 2 comments
QCAD 3.25 updated
open-source 2D CAD system. The developers main goals are to build a stable, fast and easy to use CAD for everyone. comment
