QCad - Community Edition

2D CAD program

QCad is a powerful but easy to use 2D CAD program for GNU/Linux. QCad uses DXF as its standard file format. You can load, merge and save DXF files. Furthermore it offers support for the HPGL format. While other CAD packages get complicated to use and unclear, QCad tries to stay comfortable and even an absolute beginner can create professional drawings with a minimum of effort.
