    JR,
    I too have not upgraded my TurboCAD. It is the last 64-bit version running on Windows 10 I will buy. The only thing I had to change was the TurboCAD finest line widths displays to be seen easily on my 4k computer screens. BTW, Windows 10 comes with a simple 3D CAD app for drawing objects and exporting STL files for 3D printing. It the free Microsoft 3D Builder found under the drop down menu "Windows Accessories".

    Hi Jr,

    I used CadKey and then Key Creator for years. Every year another $$$$ to pay to stay current with unneeded upgrades. Iím not opposed to learning but for a hobby there are limits.

    Thanks for the tip Paul, I did not know that existed. Tinkercad is similar but browser based and who knows when Autodesk will make it a subscription.
    I have Alibre for solid work and need to spend more time learning it. Looks real good so far. I did not buy the full version but I think this "limited" version will work for me and it was in a reasonable price range for hobbyists.

    Dick, the constant upgrade thing just makes more work for me. Frequently I just use what I have on my computer since these programs are really at a great level at this time. Back in the day it was a good idea to get new versions every now and again but I don't upgrade much now.

    Computing is good!

    Cheers, JR

    jjr2001,

    Thanks for directing me to YouTube for LibreCad tutorials. I found some great videos and I learned a lot in 1 hour. I don’t feel like a “deer in the headlights” and that is progress!

    jjr2001,
    I learned more today than I ever expected. This is the kick start I needed. I now feel quite confident I will do great with LibreCad!
    Thanks

    That's great Dick, Making the drawings is half the fun and I find a lot of re-work or bad parts
    are prevented with good drawings.

    You are so right, JR
    I enjoy drawing. It is the tool designer in me.

    jjr2001,
    I intend to keep drawing and practicing a little each day. I am getting a little more proficient each day and when I run into a wall I ask google for help. I have also been keeping a notebook to record how I did certain actions that were not intuitive or obvious. That has been good for reinforcement.
