Default Free CAD software.

i found this in a CNC forum. its a pre-release software kinda thing. if they have 100k people signing up for their release, they will give it away to those 100k people. its at about 60k right now. it cant hurt.

i guess they just want to build up a contact base. who knows. it seems legit, many sites have confirmed its legitamacy. worst case, use your spam email account to register.

This should be another way to confirm its legitimacy.

if anyone can sign up for the program, even if they want to do simply modeling, it would help 58k people where else can you help that many people!

all you need is an email address. thats all the personal information they require from you.

i heard some stuff in some other forums that they will just keep it going until it hits 100k. i mean, if they invested in the website, contest, etc... they might as well make use of it. also, ive heard from the "inside" they have the ability to add to the counter.

free cad software is always nice. especially if its good stuff.

They are at 60,174 but hear this catch:

"Everyone who registers will get the X-CAD product for FREE — but only if 100,000 people participate. So, spread the word and get your free 3D CAD software faster — tell all your colleagues and friends to register too! "

BUT ONLY IF 100,000 participate!!!

thats why i posted it here.

if its easy to use, anyone on this forum could use it to do mock-ups of projects and any other kinda of modeling needed when just designing something.

I'm certainly prepared to sacrifice one of my many email boxes for this.

ACAD getting the share. >It amazes to see how much money is rolling to this company.

A source said that ACAD sold last year 2.7 million seats for all their software.

If these were all LT which is the low cost version just add 3 “0” to that figure.

Something does not sound right with actual pricing for this software which goes up to nearly US$5,000.

ACAD will pay a price for this in the long run. We have seen this many times… they will loose market no doubt.
