For me CNC and 3D printing are gateways from my creativity to my creations. I wasn't initially confident with CAD but after about 8 years as one of my hobbies it really is my favorite way to make anything fancy with precision. Digital tools like GIMP, Inkscape, FREECAD, (OPENSCAD for the programmers among us) open up amazing possibilities. You can look back at creative artists like Leonado Da Vinci and see genius at work in his time period, but you can bet that if he'd been born in our life times his creativity would have been even more amazingly represented. Take pride in your hand skills but don't deny yourself better tools if you have the capacity to use them.
That´s true, the CAM module in Fusion is absolutely great. I´m using it for example for creating 3D Cutout-paths. But I´m using Estlcam for the "easier" tasks from 2D /2,5D milling to 3D surface milling, or just to cut something into two pieces as it takes less time (for me) than Fusion.plummet wrote: ↑Sun Aug 30, 2020 5:27 amFusion is good and download it for free as an enthusiast. It also a solid cam package. Spend you time learning fusion.
I'm rolling with fusion at home for my home builds and at work im using solidworks. Solidworks is way faster to model with. But costs an arm and a leg. Fusion is pretty darn powerful for a free software.
