So, I'm in the market for a new Mac-based 3D CAD program. AutoCAD 2001 Mac is useful for 75% of my 3D printing projects, but it's missing too many features and has too many bugs for me to stick with it.
I'm looking for an industrial design or engineering CAD program in the sub-$300 range. I'm less interested in the ability to model wild organic shapes than I am in having precise control over dimensions. Solidworks sounds great, save for the $3k price tag. How have people found TurboCAD? The CAD selection for Mac users is slim, but I'm hoping there's a solution out there.
