While looking for CAD-Software to make, validate and edit 3D models in the STEP model for use in EDA-software. I did a survay of available packages.

It seems that open-source support for the STEP format is rather lacking at the moment. However, there are initiatives (BRL-Cad, Blender CAD...) but they do not seem mature at this point.

In commercial software, 2 'purchasable' candidates remained; being Turbocad and ZWcad.
ZWcad seems a bit more suited for real CAD/mechanical work, as where turbocad seems more suited for architectural work.
ZWcad also costs quite a bit less than turbocad. (you need Turbocad platinum to be able to fully edit 3D step models)
I guess ZWcad it will be.

For evaluation;

ZWcad 3D-2012 R1:

What is the most used FREE cad software, both for 2D and 3D?

While searching I found:
- gCAD3D : http://www.gcad3d.org/
- FreeCAD : http://sourceforge.net/projects/free-cad/

Are they good?

If you want free, a lot of people use Sketchup http://sketchup.google.com/download/

If you want cheap (I've seen them run specials for $99), the best one out there, IMO, is Alibre:  http://www.alibre.com/products/hobby/

The rest is junk, IMO.  You'll burn more time on junk in a few hours than you would buying a proper tool. If your time is completely worthless, you have absolutely nothing better to do, and you'll live until the Sun supernovas, then go for it.

I am not a fan of big box bloatware (Auto-Cad, Solid Works, PTC Creo / elements/ pro-E)
And Sketchup doesn't have good import/export functions. Seems to be a good CAD tool for NON-CAD kind of people doing NON-CAD kind of jobs.
I've tried TurboCAD and found it kind of cumbersome and feature lacking (years ago, maybe its better now)

I posted TurboCAD v19.1 (x32 & x64) BTW right here:

Alibre looks pretty awesome.. it reminds me of SpaceClaim which, I find fairly usable having migrated from Rhino.

Don't know about the plug-in support. Anybody have Alibre links?

I can explain this to you. I can't comprehend it for you.
