I'm starting to get into designing and building my own printer. I find it incredibly fascinating. I'm wondering where everyone else starts? What tools to you prefer to use in the design phase? and why? I've looked at FreeCAD, OpenSCAD, TinkerCad (which would fail to create my account), and looked into commercial tools but as I'm just getting started with CAD in general, and I can't tell how long my attention span will keep up, paying an arm and a leg for pro tools is not in the budget at the moment. especially subscription based pro tools. So far I'm leaning towards OpenSCAD, due to being able to make parameterized models, but the lack of a built in library of parts, and no good visual builder, kinda hurts it in my opinion.
