Just Getting Started?

For most users wanting to begin using the MakerSpace, which software to use can be an overwhelming decision. Here are a few recommendations from our staff:

 

 

 

2D drawing:

  • For people who want to use the laser cutters, we recommend Inkscape and Adobe illustrator as a vector drawing program.
  • Inkscape is free and open-source, can do nearly everything the other programs can, and has lots of extensions that make working with a laser cutter much easier.
  • Adobe illustrator is a hugely popular software tool for making vector graphics and photo editing,

 

3D Shapes:

we recommend Tinkercad and Onshape for beginners and AutoDesk Fusion 360 for more advanced users.
