One thought on “Episode 12 – Tools of the Trade

  1. Jeff: you really should look into Autodesk Fusion 360 which is free if your revenue is less than 100k usd. It’s hands down the best volumetric cad program available cross platform.

    There’s also Autodesk 123D Design (free) which is a great volumetric cad software marketed at makers and 3d printing where as Fusion is more CNC and 3D printing.
