    LibreCAD is for 2D drawings. Onshape is for 3D parametric modeling. The analog would be LibreOffice to vim. While you might be able to get a couple of the same things done in both, they are fundamentally for different uses.

    Much more powerful than Onshape, gives RealView graphics (with a wide variety of textures to choose from), part analysis, and has a WAY better assembly program.
