floor plan design layout


Hi all..,

Any suggestions for decent free Linux CAD packages for laying out kitchens or bathrooms? Interior design, layout, Floorplans? Just in 2D...

Thanks!

I'd give QCAD a try.... the professional version costs, but the community version is free...

http://www.qcad.org/en/qcad-downloads-trial

This article is a couple of years old, but it shows some other versions as well...

Code:
E: Unable to locate package qcad
No joy there, then.

You are light on specifying your requirements, but you might look at http://www.freecadweb.org/

It probably will not be in your software repository or Software Center or whatever; download the installer package from the site and install that way.

One of the members of my LUG used LibreOffice Draw to diagram his house and yard. It's not a CAD program, but if what you need is a floor plan without a bunch of architect stuff, such as wiring, plumbing, and HVAC diagrams, it might be worth a lot.

Some of those programs from windows also run quite well in wine. I used one that was pretty good a few years ago.

Hi,

+1 for qcad, (which was qt3, the qt4 version is called librecad). If your package manager can't find it I suggest you tell us what distro and version you are using and perhaps post your sources.list.

If you go to the link provided: http://www.qcad.org/en/qcad-downloads-trial

go almost all the way to the bottom, and click the download button net to the text:

Linux Systems
tar.gz package
Version: 3.7.0

You can choose either a 32 or 64 bit version...
