I’m trying to decide if I should get a compact like the one my son has, or a larger one.
Another problem is that I use pen computers by preference, with a stylus, and don’t usually have a mouse attached, nor a desk surface to place such a thing on (I only attach a mouse when I need it for Carbide Create) — I’d need to clear off my desk in the den and have some dedicated design time.
I suppose I should just get Moment of Inspiration or something. I just wish that there was a program which worked as I would like to: parameters easily adjusted, nice curves and free form modeling easily done with an option to draw with a stylus, and programmability/scripting for the heavy lifting. I guess I need to work out how to use a Bézier curve function in OpenSCAD. Apparently Grasshopper and Rhino3D are supposed to be quite nice, but that’s way out of my budget. I keep thinking I should try FreeCAD, but it’s kind of overwhelming, while Solvespace seems so limiting (for not having Bézier curves). I guess I should sign up for Solidworks again.
