Yeah, anytime. Back when I had my 3D printer i used the 123D Design app a lot. I've only toyed around with the other apps a little bit.

Draftsight is pretty good actually, and most of its commands are the same as AutoCADS.
I have used it the most as far as free software goes.
Had a few odd video driver issues before with it displaying things oddly, but other than that it works well.

I found this: https://jtechphotonics.com/?page_id=2012 .....seems interesting. I have been using Inkscape for a couple of years and it looks like this would generate g-code straight from Inkscape.

ProgeCAD, an IntelliCad / AutoCAD clone has a free version at http://www.progesoft.com/en/products/progecad-smart/.  I use the full version and really like it as an affordable alternative to AutoCAD.

Best,
