Fusion 360 Dual Extrusion?

Once, in the first week of fiddling with Simplify3D and Fusion 360, I was able to make a white sign with red, raised letters. I was so happy. I created a cylinder close to the maximum size of my bed, added filleted edges on the top, gave it a white plastic appearance (in Fusion 360), and then added ...

Re: 3D Design Software

Onshape has no privacy whatsoever for the free subscription. Anything you do can be freely viewed and copied by others. Previously free users could have some private documents, but not anymore. Personally, I ditched them and started using Fusion 360 instead. I'm seeing a lot of votes for Fusion 360...

Another vote for ViaCAD. Need to check to see if they have an educational discount. $250 is a bit steep, but upgrades are $100? Not bad....

Re: 3D Design Software

If you want to do anything hard surface/ CAD related (non-organic), and you plan on making this a legit hobby, I'd recommend Fusion 360. Free for causal users, amazingly powerful. I've never used OnShape, but I've heard good stuff, from a group of peeps that split off from Solidworks. For anything ...

Re: 3D Design Software

I've been using ViaCAD pro. Currently $250, but there are coupon codes out there... Its also off line, no connection required. Full purchase price. I hate this rental crap. It has its issues, but for the price I find it fantastic. (I see the upgrade for me is 99 bucks... I'll be picking it up later...

Re: 3D Design Software

Interesting option, but not a fan of actual design-in-the-cloud packages. I have "Creative Cloud" but that's basically just the applications and updates pulled from the cloud. They don't actually run in the cloud. Eek.

Re: 3D Design Software

You did not say what you hope to print. If you want to make organic models, the software is not the same as mechanical models. I wish I knew the difference between these two? If I had to guess, I'd say "organic" because I don't build a lot of engineered parts or whatever? I'm 3D printing for fun. S...
