This is a wonderful project. TNX!
Please merge with the projects FreeCAD, BlenderCAD, BRL-CAD and LibreCAD to hasten development. There is a serious lack of professional grade CAD for Linux. The penguin community having so many different projects has its upsides, but that unfortunately plagues it too. Imagine alike projects merged under fewer names. If you create something alien that is so drastically different from AutoCAD (etc.), then people will less inclined to use the platform. As I always state, "Complexity is only at its finest when met with simplicity." A solid UI will make a world a difference. Hope you seriously consider. Re-posted this elsewhere as well.
This software looks VERY promising, but I'm sorry, if I can't draw a simple rectangle within 30 seconds, there's a serious problem with the user interface. :( I tried this on the latest stable version 1.6.0. I even followed the tutorial which popped up on the side, but didn't work. I'm running Windows 7 x64.
