Blender as CAD

Post by monsterkiller »

Has anyone been thinking of making from blender an CAD as it is thought in the industries (to make manufacturing drawings, with dimensions, cartridge and so on?
I would like to know about it, and if it is possible.

There was a group in Italy working on BlenderCAD a few years ago and they actually gave Blender a few CAD-like commands, but I haven't heard anything for quite some time.
