I'm going to be applying to college next year for engineering, and after a recent visit to an engineering company, I realized that I'm not getting near enough experience with CAD/CAM software in school (next to none)(the engineering class absolutely SUCKS!). As a result, I was wondering if anyone could recomend a good program that they use so I can start working with it on my own time.

AutoCAD is my favorite, also had to use CATIA. If you are going into anything aerospace, Boeing GE, it's all CATIA.

I got my experience with AutoCAD. Used that for about 7 years before I shifted careers. It's where my screen name comes from.

There is a company called BOBCAD-CAM they let you down load programs but you can't print things out or use them for anything. But they do let you familiarize yourself with the programs and how they work.

It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

A cad prof I had once was working on a project that was to create a b 17 bomber in catia from specs taken from old blue prints. His team was creating everything down to the rivet from scratch and assembling it in catia. Would be absolutely crazy, he was kind of an odd dude, then again most profs you're going to have are.
I also had a professor oak hah
