try this site http://download.cnet...4-10573933.html

 

AutoCad is not a free program

check with your instructor about it

 

when I used MicroStation at work sometimes we were allowed to use it at home

We use Microstation at work and also use RebarCad. Definitely paid programs but if you are able to get something situated with schooling that would be the way to go.

I'm presently using the LT version of AutoCAD and it was $1000.  That's the cheapest I've seen it.  Just make sure whatever you get will shake hands with the version of AutoCAD you are using at school.  We usually save our drawings back tot he oldest version of AutoCAD allowed so it's sure to work for whoever may get our drawings if we have to send AutoCAD files for any reason.  I think the cut off for the newest version would be AutoCAD 2000 but that's it.

 

Also, be sure your computer has the "stuff" to run the program.  It's quite large and will eat up a lot of memory.

I use Draft Sight, which is an AutoCAD clone, and is produced by  Dassault Systems, which also produces Solid Works.  Draft Sight is free, and works very well with my AutoCAD software at work. Do a Google search for Draft Sight--easy download.

I use it a lot when I'm doing layouts, or mechanical drawings, etc. I email the file to my house and work on it there. You can save your drawings in numerous AutoCAD formats, plus .dxf file interchange format. I'm using a 2011 version of AutoCAD & Inventor at work, and so far I've not had any problems between the two.

This might help you guys too is "trueview" download from autodesk. You can open newer versions and back save to your version
