Thread: Easy/ cheap software?

  1. #1

    Default Easy/ cheap software?

    I see a few decent looking affordable 3D printers out there, They are size limited (200-300mm X 200-300mm work space) what software is out there? seems like it's not too hard to have a .xxx file sent to me some of the printers I have been looking at have a microSD slot and a touch pad. but I want to make my own stuff so whats a good program to get my foot wet designing and printing my own stuff?

    A lot of us started with or use Fusion 360. Free for hobbyists.

    If you don't have a CAD background, TinkerCAD is a another start point. Its has some limitations, but you can do some pretty interesting projects in it for rc and not hit the limits

    I agree TinkerCad is a easy ,and free software that is easy to use and is not too confusing.

    I tried TinkerCad and wasn't a fan. I bought the Veterans version of SolidWorks and was discouraged by the extreme learning curve. Ended up with the free version of Fusion 360 and couldn't be happier.
