Play around with the IronCAD interface. Good ideas to learn from. It is really fast to get things done. The Chinese firm ZW3D product i have not tried.
Agree. I have one. It is very elastic and fast. Solutions are unique - especially tribal, and modeling by dropping primitives (also cuts, you can also prepare your own cutouts or extrudes and save it in dictionary). Advantage over conventional CAD systems (like SW and Inventor) is that you build one model and then you can move objects freely to parts or assemblies, disadvantage (and some other minor) to SW is sheet metal - but it isn't worst at all. See some tutorials, it is really worth it.

<-- all these loose parts you can in every moment put into assy on the same scene, or "explode" back into parts. Actually this is simillar to this what's going on in FreeCAD.
