Free 2D Mechanical CAD Software

I now have a Trac page to keep track of the interesting 2D mechanical CAD software I have come across.

There are at least three impressive and free AutoCAD clones available; I’ve tried all three a bit, mainly for viewing DWG files, playing with PCB outlines, and modifying electrical schematics (for creating electrical schematics, I highly recommend using a dedicated program, unless most of your schematics have moved into PCB schematics).

Unlike in the 3d MCAD world, I believe there are some impressive open source 2D MCAD programs, but I haven’t found time to research them…yet.
