Anybody use Turbocad for effects pedal design layout? And perhaps chassis / enclosure design?

Been thinking of picking it up.

The other thing about Freecad is - it works. I have done 3d design on it, then shipped files to CNC machining houses and received the goods as designed.

It's also fast enough to do visualization of quickie designs.

Like all 3d CAD things, it has a long learning curve. But that's going to be true of every 3D package. Freecad will import and use most of the many various versions of 3D formats.
