    It would be nice to have listed here the pricing for "low cost" and "non-commercial" use software.

    I have posted 'other'. Tried a few programs and found all unconvincing compared to Rhino and Maxsurf which I already have.

    I worked with DelftShip Free but six months ago I bought the DelftShip Professional because in the free version can’t print the developed panels.
    The price was 150 Euro.

    FreeShip has an old manual and tutorials, but you can learn step by step from them. Have a forum also on DelftShip.
