There are a number of good alternatives. SpaceClaim, Onshape, IronCAD, Solid Edge, and Fusion 360 all come to mind. With more background, I could provide more useful information.we currently use solidworks 2014. the cost is becoming a factor. solidworks as a whole does way more than we use it for. i am looking for some input from other cad users on some other cad software out there that i could look into as maybe an alternative.
