    It's not a CAD. It's CGS-geometry creator and ray tracer. It's most similar to Blender (or Maya on Window$) - tool for create foto-realistic image and movie.

    very complex, but very powerful CAD, which is hardly suitable for beginners

    I've been using this package for almost a year for work purposes; it was required for the project. I'm a design engineer, and normally use CATIA for design purposes. BRL-CAD and CATIA are about as far apart on the cost spectrum as possible: free to most expensive package out there.... So maybe my perspective isn't fair, but at the same time and frustration are costly. With that out of the way, I'd say... I'd never recommend using BRL-CAD for design purposes. It is too difficult to make simple changes and understand your model. There is no simple way to add standard design features like fillets. I haven't tried to export to IGES or STEP (formats that you'd need to provide to a machine shop to make your part) but based on my experience trying to import those file formats, I wouldn't have confidence in the result. All in all, BRL-CAD is a neat project and I'm sure there is a use for it, but I would not recommend it for design purposes.

    There is a lack of good open CAD software. Great to see a parametric one!
