So you have to endure adverts in order to get the data
you need? Well, that's certainly possible.

Something has to fund the service - there are several
successful models for that:

* YouTube -- Funded by adverts.
* Wikipedia -- Funded by charitable contributions.
* TurboSquid -- Funded by a 'tax' on the sale of some of the data.

All three provide at least some 'free' content.

Probably, all three business models could work for CAD data.
