Mattia Posted December 4, 2007 Report Share Posted December 4, 2007 ...I just figured out I can get a variety of CAD software packages for dirt cheap, and entirely legally (oh, the joys of being a student), so I figured I'd ask those of you with CAD/CAM experience to chime in: what's a good package for someone without massive amounts of experience, who wants to dabble in designing various guitar parts and the like. I've got a CNC project perpetually on the back burner/list of 'things to do eventually', but I figure it's a bit idiotic to start building a machine if I don't understand the basics of, well, designing things to do with said machine beforehand. The packages available that look vaguely relevant all cost about the same (65-85 euros), and I've got the following to choose from: AutoCad 2008 (Student Edition) Autodesk Inventor Professional 2008 Solidworks 2006-2007 Student Edition (Solidworks comes with a 24 month license, the other two with 14-month licenses). Thoughts from those in the know? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
