A lot of the 3D Printing guys like that program, I haven't delved very far into it yet
Does it allow you to do animation/simulation?

Unfortunately it's really only good for designing parts, not for animation, etc.

I have a few cad friends, one swears by Rhino3D and all the simulation abilities it has
You can try it for 30 days, I think the "limit" was how many saves you can do.

Solid Works was the other one and, as I mentioned, being former military, I was able to get it for $20 a year (Academic Version) I also have a friend who does sign making and swears by vCarve Pro, which we've used to generate the gcode for making some aluminum parts for my R2s on his CNC machine.

Shaggy, gotta say man... this thing is freaking mean (in a good way). I'm LOVING seeing your work on your models. I have a full-scale Tumbler build in my future, I'll share more when I get a scale model made of my girl's frame (its gonna be a little different in that I aim to have it four passenger capable (not telling how, you get no spoilers until you see the frame)). Your work is amazing tho, I figured I'd pop on this (yes I just read thru the ENTIRE 54 pages of this log), and tell you how impressed I am with the work. I also wanted you to know at some point (hopefully in the next 2 to 5 years) there will be a full size street legal Tumbler rolling around the roads of East Alabama.

Cleburne County here Shaggy. I couldn't sleep last night, so as I was up til 3am I took the time to start on my frame model, I'll get something up somewhere on here when I get the primary frame completed.

wow!!!! I've been reading this thread for days.... at work

How? first of all. have you studied so much of the tumbler that you can acurately make these "sketches"?

I cant find much when it comes to the frame or suspension on the tumbler when i google it. somehow you built the whole stinkin frame piece by piece. you are my hero Shaggy. thanks for sharing!!!

Criminals are a superstitious and cowardly lot.
