      Pete,

      If the free "123D Design" software is not enough CAD horsepower for your
      tasks, investigate the new SpaceClaim software. It is my understanding that
      you can get it; by explicitly asking for a lower price, for approximately
      the same "under $2k" Alibre Design Professional product that you have
      referenced.

      Hi Kenneth,

      I am a retired Mechanical CAD Designer with 25 years of CAD experience on
      several different packages. I used Cadkey/Keycreator since 1994. In 2009 I
      learned Solidworks but took a voluntary layoff in 2010. I never got really
      proficient with it. Last year I was contacted by a friend who designs steam
      engines he as a project that he bid on in Michigan. He asked me if I would
      do the CAD work for him. I can't afford the $5K for Keycreator or the over
      $10K for Solidworks. I have been looking at Alibre Design Professional. It
      sells for $2300 but includes a $400 annual maintenance contract. They sent a
      trial copy to me to use for a month. It seems quite impressive. Thursday
      they called and offered the package to me for under $2K. I'm between a rock
      and a hard place because the contract hasn't been awarded yet. Retirement is
      so much fun!

        Kenneth,

        I had heard of SpaceClaim a couple of years ago. I think that it was from England. I did go to there Website. It List for around $2500. No mention of Annual maintenance cost. It's a direct modeler which is to my liking as that is what KeyCreator is. They are much more intuitive and easier to use than the History based modelers. I will have to do some more research and try to get a trial copy when Alibre trial runs out. Thanks.
