Question about drawing/ 3d modeling a custom laptop case

Post by ninjamonkey » Thu Jan 17, 2013 12:00 am

Hey,

I am in the process of planning an OUYA laptop. Its in the planning stages currently as I dont have one just yet (its coming in march). I was wondering, whats a good program for modeling cases to be CNC'ed in? Also, any good tutorials that would be good for me to get started with the program?

Solidworks is great. Sketchup is free though.

I have some training in Solidworks, but I haven't used it in a few years.

Just today I picked up 123D Design, and I find it has all the basic features that Solidworks has, laid out in a way that is easier to use. 123D is also completely free for several operating systems. Unless you need advanced features like stress tests, 123D is something to look in to.
