Do any of you CAD out your parts before building them? Anybody have any leads on cheap software packages out there? Downloadable student versions that don't expire and leave watermarks would be ideal.
I have access to Solidworks and NX at work and have used ProE in the past but i'm sure i could learn a new one. Lately things have been so busy around the office that I really want to leave at the end of the day. I'm not a fan of eating all 3 meals at work.
