    Hello AppleCAD,

    I have never used CAD before but it is something that I wish to learn, sparked mainly by my access to a 3D printer (makerbot).

    Can you please suggest a program or free applications that are not only easy to use, but also have an abundance of tutorials or material to help me learn more about the intricacies of CAD.

    Thank you in advance,

      Hi James,
      I would suggest SketchUp Make (free software) will be your best option. Easy to learn and use with hundreds of YouTube videos and a massive following of users and teachers etc.

      eric-jan, Cobalt would be a great choice, especially as you have already experienced 2D software from the same development team. You will no doubt find it suits the way you have been trained to think.
