I started using Autodesk's autocad 2002 in 3d in addition to Rocksim. It was better for my non-standard designs. On top of that, it would also give CG and CP positions for individual pieces which I could then calculate to get an overall CG and CP for the rocket. If I was making none traditional fins, I could input them by angle and length and didn't have to compute the co-ordinates. There were a lot more options for rendering. Only thing I couldn't do is predict altitudes. Of course then the computer I had it on bit the bullet .
