Sketchup or Autodesk Fusion 360
I realize that both Sketchup and Autodesk Fusion 360 are "free" (Yes, Fusion 360 is free if you use it for a non-profit purpose, and as a hobbyist I qualify).
I'm told that Sketchup is easier, but that making changes to finsihed components and complete assemblies later is much harder.
I am also attracted to the Fusion 360 concept of being able to define "standard" components or assemblies of components, since I re-use many components and subassemblies in different finished children's toys. After a while, many of my assemblies would be partially "pre-designed" by existing components and subassemblies.
But, I see that while we have a Sketchup forum here, we don't have a Fusion 360 forum, so I assume most of you are using Sketchup.
1. Why did you choose Sketchup?
2. Am I right in thinking that Fusion 360 might be a better fit for someone like me that re-uses existing designed components either unchanged or with merely one or two dimensions changing?
I do not need CAM capabilities, but bills of material and dimensioned computer-generated drawings would be really nice.
