At $149 that package is way out of my reach.Sketch up allows try before you buy. If I aquired this program for free, there is a very real chance of malware, or worse.
@Kevin, have we met? I am in a wheelchair due to a stroke shutting down my left side. I am not stupid, but the stroke has made a measurable difference in my thinking speed. So I now have one working arm/hand and leg (right side). When I ask for help I’m trying to avoid some of the traps lurking for people like me. Before I was in this predicament 3 years ago I thought they (scammers) were scum, now that I find myself vulnerable I feel leven more strongly about it. DMS has a student copy for solid works. Currently I save $20/month for computer hardware, as opposed to necessities like food or internet. Before I even think about saving for a $100+ software package I need to make sure I have the brain power left to use it. Simplify 3D looks promising, but I don’t feel asking for help is out of line.
PS: I will be at DMS ever Sat. afternoon for the foreseeable future, including this weekend.
