    It’s not that hard. Depends on the program you use.
    Just start at the begging.

    It's surprising how easy it is to get started, just start with something simple, I made back to back gauges as early items, just a cylinder with a cut out for an axle and a handle. Lets you establish the accuracy of the printer, and only a few pennies worth of resin / filament.

    3d printing is something id like to get into. I have access to Autocad through work. Currently working from home so could use it at home for now. Ive tried using some of the free or more affordable 3d modelling packages and have struggled a bit with them. After using autocad for 20 years im so stuck in my ways.

    Hi Paul

    Have a look at Fusion 360, for personal use (or comercial use for companies with less than $100,000 turnover) it's free of charge. Coming from the Autodesk stable there should be some comonality.

    Thanks I just had a look. I'd previously considered it but as my computer was logged into my work autodesk account it kept asking me to pay for a license. Once id realised if i created a personal account i could get it free i've downloaded it. It looks like a slightly simplifed version of autocad with pretty icons. The commands seem to be very similar. Im a bit old school and input commands using the keyboard on autocad so will have a bit of a learning curve using the icons and menus
