Auto sketch will save as dxf or dwg. It is a nice program too. If I'm making dimensional drawings, I use this, save as dxf and import in CAM program. It is easy to learn also. Same people that write Autocad. I think it cost like $160.00.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Hi Benny,

Here's one you might add to the CAM page... it has similar features to Code Shark's Editor:

Saw those but wasnt sure. Thanks.
Sure Wish LCam could "create" a part , instead of modifying an existing drawing.

If you can get on with Autocad then Progecad is a very good clone of Acad.
Best thing is the LT version is completely free with no restrictions on time or saves etc.
