Download Sketchup. It's FREE! Can't beat that.

Nope! I've searched that very question all back through the forum, and it is plain that what you want just does not exist.

(As Andy mentioned) I'd recommend DraftSight. It's a free AutoCAD clone.

Google Sketch Up 8.

Pretty neat for free, but has some learning time if you want to show detail.

As stated...can't get any cheaper than free.
