I have been working a bit on Daxcad this year – if only to get it into GIT and Bitbucket. My repo is here
So I have an eclipse project set up with the original source -this is for CYGWIN 32 bit only -so you will need to download Cygwin with X although other X servers can be used – I used this one as well as cygwin X server which is actually quite good if you use their seamless mode ( startxwin )
Daxcad drawings are supplied in the build – you can read in DXF and IGES… not for the faint of heart – mind you never was. This picture is from the mobXterm server. Looks fast enough.
