SolveSpace CAD

SolveSpace is a free and open source [GitHub] computer aided drawing program (CAD).
I haven't used it yet but it looks like it could be a good choice for modeling fusor's and ion guns.

Hmm, I think I would just stick with Fusion360. It actually has good CAM built in if you have a CNC machine. And its free for hobbyists.

The major selling point would be that it's open source; for those who find that important.
