Not in any of the tools I've seen. You'd need to do some drawing on top of the
3D views.

You might be able to spend a *bit* less than the cost of a CAD designer by
looking for people who use MAX or Truespace to build 3D objects for games. But
the end result would still be either shaded 3D renderings or triangle meshes,
both of which would require touchup to convert them into "clean" line art. To
my knowledge there is no such thing as a "clean" 3D line model.
