Default Anybody given this a test run?

Open Source (meaning free) CAD software called OpenRocket written in Java so it is multi-platform. It was written for a fellow's Master's thesis. I probably won't be home long enough until the weekend to try it out, but it looks promising. Since it is open source, anyone with the ability to do so can tweak, revise, etc.

Read about it here. Download it and give a quick comparison to RocSim, Space Cad, WinRASP, etc. if you have the desire to do so. It's still in Beta, so there will be quirks and bugs, but judging from the comments, it's pretty nice...except for the one Mac user. I've always been a "TLAR" person, but it might be fun to play around with.
