  1. ActCAD One of the Best Software available at lower price that too with perpetual license

  2. Hi. I was having some issues with some of the capabilities of the software(such as padding and changing preferences). After asking on the freeCAD forums, they told me I was running a much older version. I have just reset my Linux environment and re-installed, but it does not seem to be updated. do you know of any way to get the latest version? Thanks for any help.
