No, I don hab a cold. After checking out the world of CAD online, and there was a lot to click through, I learned the following lesson: don't judge a site by its URL. Type in www.tenlinks.com and you'll see what I mean.
TenLinks.com offers a cornucopia of CAD/CAM information and links. Among its services: daily industry news; downloadable programs, in-depth articles; daily, weekly, and monthly newsletters; specialized product, company, and consultant directories; and (my favorite) a Recent Additions page.
The web is forever. Which means on a site that serves an entire industry it's easy to get halfway into an exciting news story just to find out that everyone else already read it—when it was posted months earlier! The daily headlines and Recent Additions page will help keep users up on the best of the breaking news, and also let you know what's new on the site. Make sure you click on the Free Stuff link. It has oodles of free CAD programs and FEA software.
