Hi All,

We are looking for a 3D cad pkg for generating components & enclosures etc
for product design.

$7K is a bit steep for us for Autocad or Solidworks given the frequency of
use. ( at least for now ) Does anyone have any suggestions on a useful
package that lives a bit further down the price scale, but is not a complete
dog. I accept that you get what you pay for so we are attempting to locate a
happy medium.


Cheers

Don

P.S Nice to see that at least Chris Mackensen had his 'virtual sense of
humour' with him when reading the post.  ;-)
