3D Frame rendering software

Some one once posted a link to some downloadable software that allowed the user to create a 3D image of a frame, whether it be road, track, bmx, etc., it was really cool. I haven't been able to find it since. I am going to build a frame and have all these ideas that I would like to put down. If you have this, or know where to find/buy it please help a guy out. Thanks.

Freeware? Rhino has a free version which is a fully feature intense 3-D rendering program. a bit simpler perhaps is Google sketchup, but I dont know how truly accurate you can get with that in terms of angles, etc..

solidworks gets my vote but its $$$$!!

a frame is a simple enough drawing that with big paper, a big ruler and a big protractor, you can lay it out by hand in full scale. or get not as big supplies and do it half scale.
