I suppose everything mentioned here runs on Windows...

No, it also runs on Mac :). As a Linux user you should just check all software mentioned here for Linux compatibility. Sometimes there is no way around the virtual machine and sometimes it runs native.

Blender runs on Linux and heres a link to some others, I cant comment on how good most are since I am a Windows user, but maybe someone with some experience of using these can comment.

Normal people believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain’t broke, it doesn’t have enough features yet....

Well, I certainly would never consider being 'limited' if running Linux!  🙂 🙂 🙂

I was not implying that Linux is limited, just that I choose not to run Windows on my desktop but this might imply some limitations as to which software is available.

Thanks for the details; I'll check these out.

There are some wonderful Fusion 360 Tutorials on YouTube. Worth watching even if you don't use the program.

Fusion 360 is the only design tool I am trying to get good at. But you can't avoid OpenScad, so you might as well pick it up now.

A lot of things on Thingiverse, like https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1068443 (recommended),

include the .scad file. And if you want to see "how the devil did he do that", you pretty much have to open it in OpenScad.

I am doing technical parts and therefore I use onshape (onshape.com), which is cloud-based and very similar to Solid Works.

Without internet connection I am on FreeCad, but I am not too familiar with it.

Best regards, Clemens

I upgraded my 3d printer recently and I decided to switch to fusion 360. I noticed that its a lot easier to use. Ive been enjoying my new 3d printer a lot. If youre planning  on upgrading your 3d printer, you should check out this website to help you decide.
