Usually pencil and paper I do have a copy of TurboCad which I use when I need precision.
Formerly Solidworks when as a university student. It spoiled me with ability to do airfoils and math based equations. I’ll have to buy a copy someday literally.
AutoCAD for 2D, AutoDesk Fusion for 3D
For most of my internal rocket parts I use TinkerCAD. It’s betond dead simple & works from a browser on (almost) any computer. When I need something more powerful than that, Fusion 360 (free for hobbyists) or Solidworks ($20 for veterans) work great.
Jolly Logic mechanical components (cases, mounts, Chute Release parts) were designed in Autodesk Inventor.
Rhino for 3D, AutoCAD LT for 2D. It's good to work for an engineering company.
I have tried inkscape for converting pictures and PDF files to DWG files for laser cutting at work. Never had much luck with it. I seen good reviews with it though. Have you had good luck?
If you join E.A.A. they offer a free version of Solidworks...https://www.eaa.org/en/eaa/news-and...07-25-2016-new-member-benefit-from-solidworks
Awesome! I've been a member of EAA for years but never knew this existed. Just started my download...
