• Hi - We're having intermittent forum issues. Posts, alerts, and anything involving email like signing up or password changes are having problems but not for everyone or everywhere. Josh is working on it. No ETA right now. Thanks Josh - BTW this is a volunteer forum so SLA's are just best effort. EDIT -> I manually batch updated about 25 people stuck on the email notification. Try logging in now with your password. EDIT -> May 8/23. I updated another bunch of users stuck on email notifications. Try to login if you are stuck. If you really can't get in contact us on facebook or if you know a forum member get them to ask us.

I have used F360 but my laptop struggles to run it with anything terribly complicated.
Am now transitioning to Freecad as it seems to require less processing power.

that's because it does so much less :) I would reco getting a better computer. Re-learning cad sw is not conducive to getting things done.

Especially not if you are going backwards at the same time.

I am coming off of CATIA. It's all I can do to muster up enough will-power to re-learn something so much less capable like F360.

On the other hand, I cannot even remotely, in my wildest dreams, afford a CATIA seat. So Fusion 360 here I come - albeit slowly, kicking, screaming, and whining, and otherwise acting out like a big spoiled baby (as in this post). ;)
