    I've done most of my frame in JD2s' free software. It seems to have some issues, locks up, dumps your work, but gives a good idea on how things are going to look. It even kicks out the info needed to bend up parts. Hey for free you just can't go wrong here. Hats off to JD2 if I needed a bender (already made my own) I would go to them in a heart beat. The only inteligent alternative for a newbie would to just buy plans from one of these fab guys (they've done their homework).

    Have been trying to find some kind of software for doing some frame design but couldn't find much. Either my dell wasn't powerful to run it or it wasn't what I was looking for. After seeing your post I went to jd's site and downloaded the program and after playing with it for a bit I am really impressed. I've never used a drawing program and don't know how but I'm sure I can learn. I was hoping that there was some instructions of some sort but have not found any yet. Maybe in the readme file. Anyway I have a protool bender just like jd's model 3. Thanks for posting the info on this program, know I think I have something I can work with.

    Bendtechpro is a very nice, inexpensive tube program

    I second that,
    Bendtech is really great for building frames. Bendtech pro will let you model a complete frame from scratch and then tell you the specs for each tube. Its incredibly useful and cheaper than full fledged CAD programs.
