Main Question or Discussion Point

Perhaps someone may be able to suggest (Windows) software that I could use that allows me to draw experimental set-up schemes on my computer (i.e. include images such as beam splitters, wave plates, PBS’s) without much hassle? Anything that is open-source, perhaps? And easy to use?

Otherwise really it’s a use of Paint. Unfortunately Office Visio 2010 doesn’t have any physics diagrams I could use/manipulate.

The simple stuff does not do what you want...what does it, it's complicated...that's always the case.

Free stuff that draws:

2D
Inkscape
Dia
Asymptote

3D
Google Sketchup
Blender
FreeCAD

Thanks!

Someone else suggested Inkscape, so I'll go with that.
