Okay, so I bet you’re wondering where I hear about this stuff… this one’s from a CADalyst Magazine emailing:
CoCreate Introduces Free 3D Modeling Software
CoCreate Software, a provider of third-generation PLM software applications for high-tech electronics and machinery, has introduced free, dynamic modeling-based 3D CAD software. CoCreate OneSpace Modeling Personal Edition (PE) offers all the features of CoCreate’s enterprise OneSpace Modeling 3D CAD system for assemblies of up to 60 parts, the company reports. The PE version is designed for engineers, designers and students, as well as casual users and hobbyists. It includes self-paced tutorials, quick-start projects, online help and user forums. The free offer expires March 31, 2007. Register and download the software on the CoCreate Web site.
You have to register at the site, but that’s the only “cost”, it appears. I’ve not tried this product (tho I plan to give it a whirl - mostly to see if it has any export formats that work with Blender
And there’s a design competition to go with it:
CoCreate Announces Worldwide Design Competition

Beginning March 19, CoCreate Web site visitors will vote for the most innovative design project.
