Re: Linux Cad Packages

Varicad seems to be the closest thing to Autocad on Linux. It isn't free, but the cost is reasonable. It handles DWF files natively.

QCad is GPL software, but it is more lightweight, and reads DXF instead of DWG. It's more of a hobbyist tool.

Let me know if you find something else...

I checked out LinuxCad and it isn't quite there.  I also looked at
Varicad, which is more suitable for mechanical engineers.

This is the ONLY thing keeping my firm from a total switch to open
source, GNU/Linux.
