'[OT]: Simple freeware drawing software'

Hello,

   I'm looking for a freeware drawing software for doing simple squematics
and block diagrams in monocrome.

   Something like the MSPaint that comes with Windows, but smarter.

   What can you recommend?

   Thank you very much,

   Brusque

Can I suggest that you download Switcher Cad III from Linear
Technology?  Even if you never use the circuit simulation side of the
package, the schematic entry package is excellent.  I think that you will
be hard pressed to find anything better for free.

   I think I haven't expressed myself very well. I already use squematic
drawing like Eagle and I too like SwitcherCad.

   What I need is a general drawing program. Like the MSPaint, PhotoShop,
CorelDraw etc because I need to do some small sketches like a membrane
keypad or an outline of conections in a device.

   What is bogging me is that MSPaint is zero and CorewDraw/PhotoShop is
too much. I need something simple but usefull and all the shareware/freeware
packages I've seen are very bad.

   Thank you anyway,

   Brusque

You are right - I did not understand your request.

There is apparently a free version of TurboCad available from the Digital
River website:
<http://nct.digitalriver.com/fulfill/0002.16>.

In addition, Solid Edge offers a free version:
<http://www.origin.snt.nl/FreeOriginen.asp>

I also have a couple of versions of IntelliCAD from CADopia that are marked
as being fully free - contact me if you want a copy.  IntelliCAD is no
longer free but the older versions I have (2000, 2001) are free as per the
following snip from the README file included in the download:

In the spirit of OpenSource, IntelliCAD 2000 by CADopia (base product) is
provided free of charge. After downloading the password protected file
setupIcad.exe, double click the file to install IntelliCAD 2000.

I'm sure that other list members will have something to add to the above.

Visio? (You may have it already)
Paint Shop Pro? (Awesome like Photoshop, much cheaper)
TurboCad v4? (Not the latest w/3d capability, but free)
Or search download.com, cnet.com, tucows, etc for something
freeware/shareware.

Cheers,
-Neil.

Hello,

You may want to check out The Gimp. It's complicated, but works well and is
fairly simple to learn.

Hi-
Gimp is great!  Also, StarOffice from Sun at:
http://wwws.sun.com/software/star/staroffice/5.2/get.html has a builtin drawing
package, and is free.

If you want a vector based package (rather than bitmap) you can get a free
(older) version of  TurboCAD that should be more than adequate to your
needs.

I have found that my schematic package makes a pretty good ordinary drawing
package, especially when you then do a printscreen to get a bitmap copy of
the screen that you can import into anything else, like when doing
documentation type things.

I have an old copy of deltacad on my website...

which is quite good for its age.

If you don´t mind getting an excellent Office suite as bonus, get Staroffice 5.2 for free at http://www.staroffice.org/
(OK, this is only free if you have free download time and big HD.)

The office suite is like a full MS-Office, but also includes a vector based drawing program.

(and also includes a MS-paint-like bitmapeditor, but you want the vector thing)

Available for both Windows and Linux, btw, and can import and export MS formats.

Version 6 will be available late this year, but not for free.
Also check out the compatible sister http://www.openoffice.org/ that is sort of base for Staroffice 6.

:)

I downloaded StarOffice a few months ago and I have been disappointed. I guess I shouldn't look a "gift horse" in the mouth, but I had expected it to be truly MS compatible. I find that it has some annoying little incompatibilities that cause the formatting to get messed up when opening documents created by MS Word. Also, a friend of mine also tells me that it's equation editor is not compatible with MS's.

Have you also found this to be the case?

I have no idea about the equation editor but 5.1 does mess up some of the
formatting, it especially likes to insert blank pages for no reason
between full ones or ones with just 2-3 lines of text on it. However, it
works.

Free for evaluation: IPad - intelligent vector graphics editor (the same
font end used in ZMech and XEBOT)

You don't have to download and install it to see what it does, just have a
quick look at these animated gifs.

due to finger trouble here I gave the wrong address for the DeltaCad
program. It should have been

http://www.corn2.freeserve.co.uk/dtcad21.zip

there is another copy here, if the freeserve site proves too slow

http://www.qsl.net/m3msm/files/dtcad21.zip

my apologies to anyone who tried to get a copy and failed.

Another good schematic capture package is DesignWorks Lite
http://www.dwlite.com/index.html?2

30 days free and $50 after that. Used it in the last 6 months and am very
happy with it.
