I've been searching on Blender.it a bit, and I found this thread:
http://www.blender.it/modules.php?op=mo ... 66&forum=4
it makes no sense to me, because unfortunately I don't speak Italian, but here is a (though crappy online) translation:

Hello, Manuel and all the others of the plan I wanted to only have some info on blender cad, is going ahead? release date? when me the dates?

Hour the job behind the scenes of blender.it is largest and this, above all in this is made begins them can provoke delays of this type.

Fist of all I'am sorry for my poor english.

We are late in the release of blenderCAD pre-alpha2 due to other project that we are completing.
We hope to release blenderCAd pre-alpha2 in 3 or 4 weeks.

If you have any other question plese post.

This is my first post and I hope this adds to the fruitful discussion here.

I've tested quite a number of CAD software and the easiest I ever used so far features the use of a workplane that may be moved to specific surfaces where editing is needed. There is also the feature where after invoking a command on a profile (as in the case of extrusions or sweeps) the image is updated in real time with 'handles' and when necessary, data fields are available for inputs. The right-click context menu further makes designing intuitive and at the same time accurate.

I would like show some images but I still need advice on how to do this things here. I find this a real significant project - bridging the best of the 3D world - animation and 3D-CAD.

Update on the Blender/CAD subproject?

Post by abeburnett »

Hi there, I noticed that there hasn't been an update to this Topic in a long time, and I noticed that there hasn't been an update to the Blender/CAD subproject in a long time, and there appears to be little/no activity to that project. Does anyone know if CAD-type features are still being worked on for addition to Blender?

Thanks! Abe

The coders who were doing BlenderCAD are primarily the same coders who are doing Makehuman. I thik that for the time being that BlenderCAD has been stopped (for quite some time now...).

Last time I checked, the project was mothballed. But if you want to use an open source CAD program you can try out BRL CAD, although atm only on Linux and Irix.

Oh no!

Mothballed? I was reading this thread and was thinking to myself: cooool... and then I got this far. :( Hopefully, development will be restarted!

I fell what you're saying about 3D and Cad Walrus.

Check out my site at our school to see what we're doing:

I like to think we have the perfect "blend" of software :D [/quote]
