Used to use FreeCAD almost exclusively until a friend turned me on to Wedge (in the windows store). I still use FreeCAD for more complicated stuff but for simpler things Wedge tends to be quicker.

Was Wedge available for Windows 8?

I suspect I'm going to regret having not downloaded it before Windows 10 became available --- seems to be 10 only now.

I currently use it on both a Win 8.1 and a Win 10 machine.
If you're using 8.1 this should be the direct link: http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/app/7 ... cf2e4a91a1
