Thread: Free 2D drawing programs
11/04/2019 18:05:04

Thanks to all who responded to my help about finding a 2D drawing program.

I have tried Solid Edge by Siemens but I found their tutorials not very helpful, in fact I couldn't really get started at all. It seems to be a very complicated program.

LibreCAD I could get to work but the tutorial seemed to be written for a slightly different version, also not all the functions worked or didn't work consistently. Also changes made to line thickness doesn't show up on the working screen only in the print preview which is not very helpful.

So what do folk think og QCAD? either the bought version or the free version.

Thanks again for all your help.

Can anybody help me find a free 2D drawing program so I can draw engineering plans of whatever I want to make or have made, so I can email them to whom ever, say MEW for an article I want to submit?

Since my original post, I have now made a simple device that sorts this problem.
I have written it up with photos, and submitted it to David Clark, so hopefully it will be out there for anyone to use in MEW in the not too distant future.

Does anybody know of a mod to prevent engagement of the lead screw when using the power cross feed?
