open source equivalent to MAP 3D? for a MAC?

Recommended Posts


Afternoon all,


I used to use AutoCad Map 3D a lot at work. I'm self employed in a different field now but make guitars in my spare time.


I found Map 3D excellent for producing scaled plans of guitars from which to make MDF templates.


Please can anyone recommend a free open source alternative that runs on a MAC?


apart from basic CAD functionality i'd like to be able to geo-reference rasters as well if poss. I also need the offset function for laying out fret spacings.


I also have CS5 and was wondering if Illustrator would work.

Take a look at OSGEO.org. But most of the folks there like Mac as much as they do Windows. :)
