Any simple program or Ap out there for knife design? Is CAD it?.
Ted: Interesting statement, perhaps because it so closely reflects my own thinking. Before retirement doing a dwg I'd tend to always do a rough outline at least on paper to get an idea down, then to the CAD program. Of course where the same dwg is used with just terminal numbers and instrument numbers changed the same dwg is used over 'n over again - that's one of the BIG time savers using CAD vs paper dwg'ings.I use CAD...AFTER I have a real nice sketch...lol.
First I’m hearing about DS scrapping their freeware. That really stinks, though maybe they’ll see a rapid enough decline in users that they reverse their new policy. I don’t really see how they’ll compete when Fusion 360 is still in the game. Yeah, fusion is primarily a 3D program, but you can still make due.I'm looking for what I wish to change to since Draftsight has decided no more free version for hobby use. While $400 or so is fairly cheap compared to AutoCAD it's still MUCH more than I'm prepared to pay for hobby use. I'm playing around with Inkscape, but think Fusion 360 might be more powerful. BUT - I really like the idea of Inkscape being openscource.
