Be aware that this is highly militaristic in any documentation - it been produced by the US army.

On the other hand the whole internet is based on a US Department of "Defense" project.

It doesn't show up after you download it, don't waste your time with it.

Much too complicated if you want something simple which just works.

Possibly the most obtusely designed and difficult to use programs I have ever run across. Not recommended.

My guess it would take longer to learn this incredibly user-unfriendly program than to make enough money working at Mickey-D's to buy AutoCAD and a top of the line workstation to run it on. This is NOT an open source alternative, and likely will never be. It's a 1970s vintage military application, and powerful as it may be, unless you're comfortable specifying 3D geometry using the command line, this is not the program for you.

Wow, simply powerful.
