    Very cool. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"> If I worked at a place with a milling machine, I'd probably spend all my time milling out slingshots (and other gadgets) and end up getting fired. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> Seriously, nice design.

    Yes it´s Inventor from Autodesk.<br>A very nice program. The fine thing from Autodesk is, all user with a license at work, can use it at home.<br><br>And for all, who are interested in 3d desing.<br>Search for sculptris. I can´t post the link, because of the 7 day rule. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/sleep.gif" alt="Sleep" longdesc="31"><br>It´s freeware, you only have to register.<br>It´s easy to use.
