Looking for some software for building a frame from tubing. Doesnt really need to have curvy effects i guess. ive had past experience with autoCAD 2010. id like to have a program that i can build to scale, like this piece 20" and this 18" for example. it would be nice if it could read a angle after i draw it too. And free or some other download.... Doesn't have to be 3D as im used to 2D. Thanks.

The most reliable and cheapest thing to get?

Pencil and paper  affraid , tape measure, and an angle finder.  That is what I use all the time.
