    Hello,

    I need to find a free version of 3D CAD software to draw up blueprints on a Mac, for an idea to be submitted to a company. They will only take it in CAD format.

    I really need to find something ASAP.

    If anyone on here can think of a GOOD version, please message me.

    I really need your help.

    Thank you in advance SO MUCH...

    Honestly if you realistically had any shot of winning a bid by submitting a drawing you would already have CAD, however try LibreCad. I am very curious to know why, if this is actually important to you, you don't already have a CAD program you can do this with.

    I'm not doing this for a "BID" It's a random idea i just wanted to draw up a CAD diagram for.

    This is very important to me, and I would love to buy AutoCAD but i don't have 3-5k to drop right now on PROPER software, just to draw 1 diagram.

    Does that make sense??? :D

    My experience is that NDA's are not worth much - necessary but not foolproof.

    I would suggest you get apatent filing date in asap just to secure it.

    Hope that helps.
