As it looks like all the posters on here are teetotal.. can anyone suggest an easy to learn, free, 3D prog so i can have a go myself. Junior had bought his printer and is gagging to use use in on something 'proper'
Ron Free 3D programmes, best IMO are either Fusion 360 or Solid Edge. Easy to learn? Depends on if you want to learn! I have taught total non engineers to model reasonably well in 3D where others have struggled. PM me you email address so I can contact you to send me the drawing and I can than have a look at it for you. Regards Dave

Ron , only just seen your post! Don't know if you are sorted, if not I can highly recommend ViaCAD 2D/3D as being very easy to learn and use , the drawback is that it is not free. However I will do your drawing if needed and suggest that you check out Shapeways.com for your 3D printing. They are so cheap that it is hardly worth bothering with a home printer. Dan.
