What software do you find useful for 3D printing and CNC routing?
Though it’s not open source, I’m finding Autodesk’s Fusion 360 to be reasonably good.
However it was made clear to me that people want software that works on tablets and phones, which I was taken aback by, because to me, fidelity and dexterity in creating requires different inputs (mouse, keyboard, pen tablet).
What software do other people use, and do they use it on their smartphones / smart tablets?
Mostly use OpenSCAD… never tried using it from a tablet, suspect it’d be a pain. Have dabbled with Fusion 360, Autodesk 123D Design, Tinkercard and FreeCAD. Out of those, I expect Tinkercad would be easiest to use on a tablet.
Free CAD, opensCAD and in lesser degree blender. for 3d printing combined with slic3r or octoprint. I also use them a bit for CNC machining vacuum forming tools (the CNC software controller accepts STL files.
octoprint is webbased so people can just dowload stl and octoprint can slice directly but no designing. insure if it can scale…
OpenSCAD could have a mobile app or maybe a web app. But never heard of it.
For other CAD I use sweetHome3D to check where things fit in a room (interior design).
