Hello, we're thinking of starting a "thing" with a designer friend where we'd make furniture and other DIY stuff and sell it for a small profit to friends and whatnot... I'll be helping with most of the building so I'd like to have some software where I could design and model each item before we start building it. I'd maybe need to add hinges and screws and so on and perhaps animate it just a bit to get a feel for how each item might look or work from pieces to full assembly. Any suggestions for software that might help? Thanks for your time ---------- I've used Rhinoceros just a little bit and a friend has also showed me Modo, don't know which one would be more suitable though. NOTE: I might in the future need to export to a format that can be input in a CNC for aluminium milling, but that's not a pressing concern at this time.
