Solidworks for US mIlitary veterans $20 per year

I have never considered using SolidWorks because of the pricing but I will have to rethink that.
I have used DraftSight for years on my Linux box and in my VirtualBox Windows VM.

Please note that it’s the educational edition (and presumably subject to the attendant licensing limitations), and you have to relicense (and upgrade) each year.

(I buy it, but so far, it’s just been my son using it on his gaming machine to do schoolwork)

For a free/opensource option which is parametric see SolveSpace: http://solvespace.com/index.pl
