Solidworks Autocad

I am making a part and now need to get it cast. I have made a prototype that fits, now I need to make a drawing.. I don't really want to buy and learn a new software package, so does anyone know someone that can take a part and create a drawing? This is part of the email I got from the foundry:

This looks like something we can definitely produce for you. However, I will need a 3D CAD model and/or a detailed dimensioned drawing of the part. A 3D CAD model is required for prototype and short run projects. A dimensioned drawing alone will suffice for large production quantities.

I'm a mechanical designer, but have never worked with castings. I can however build 3d models and could do a pretty quick dimensional drawing.
