Thread: CAD software

Threaded View

    Default CAD software

    I'm thinking about trying CAD software to lay out a pattern for some boxes I'm building for my bike. I built a mockup using thin cardboard, but it wasn't as precise as I'd like once I cut out the metal. I had a couple of thin sections I had to fill and it was a royal pain. I'm using .080" aluminum. Is this even feasable?

    Does anyone use a process like this, and if so, what is required to print out the results? Can you do it on a normal width desktop inkjet?

    Here's the boxes I'm building:
