new version of bikecad out

new features from the website:
Model a chain or belt drive.
Adjust the position of the axle in track style or sliding dropouts.
New Display dialog box with added ability to control the display of dimensions and notes.
Open and save designs online.
Fork length can be controlled in two ways. Use dimension L for the distance from the axle to the crown measured parallel to the steerer tube. Use dimension AC for the direct distance from the axle to the crown.
There is no longer a limit on the number of on-screen notes that can be created.
Control handlebar clamp diameter in the stem.
Serotta inspired font bundled in both BikeCAD and BikeCAD Pro.
By default, scrolling the mouse wheel down zooms in, and scrolling the mouse wheel up, zooms out. This behaviour can now be reversed as described here.
You can now model a seatpost clamp, seatpost binder boss, or wedge.
Offset rear dropouts for improved chain/ tire clearance on fat bikes.
Updated profiles for newer Shimano and SRAM brake levers.
Arrange boxes to determine the ideal placement of S & S couplings.
Display water bottle bosses with M5 cap screws.
Account for the need to partially or fully mitre the top tube to the downtube on smaller frames.
Model hooded dropouts.
I think it was well worth the money I paid, particularly considering the free updates

A lot for the free entry! Long time CAD user, but not for bicycles.
