PythonCAD – Free, Open Source Scriptable Drafting Program

PythonCAD is a CAD package written, surprisingly enough, in Python. The PythonCAD project aims to produce a scriptable, open-source, easy to use CAD package for Linux, the various flavors of BSD Unix, commercial Unix, and other platforms to which someone who is interested ports the program. Work began on PythonCAD in July, 2002, and the first public release was on December 21, 2002.
The twenty-seventh release of PythonCAD was made available on December 6, 2005. This release includes various bug fixes and code enhancements in the interface neutral code. A long-standing issue of indicating selected entities in a drawing has been addressed by highlighting the entity when it is selected, and the ability to deselect a selected entity was added to the interface.
