I learned Cadence OrCad at uni but there isn't a free version unless you're a student.

I was thinking about branching out into other software.

Which software do you suggest for schematic entry, circuit simulation, and PCB layout.

Please Mention the cost of the option you're suggesting as I'm hoping to get something for free.

I've used the national instruments multi sim and ultiboard which was good. Not sure if it's currently free
