Draftsight: free CAD software
open source free CAD software has been difficult to find in the past, but earlier this year 3DS released Draftsight, a product that comes close to industry heavyweight AutoCAD.
It supports DWG files so even if you just want to open AutoCAD files to view, Draftsight can do it.
