A little Intro:
I am a furniture maker and have long been using SketchUp for drawing my work, but would love to finally switch to an open-source solution ('have been a Linux user since 12 years…).
I tried FreeCAD, and although it may be the recommended software for this, I don’t find it intuitive, I don’t like creating parts and then assembling them…
Blender seems to suit my needs better (also works in many regards similar to SketchUp).
But my problem here is, that I cannot figure out how to create even the simplest shape and give it exact dimensions. I activated the MeasureIt addon, and in Object view I can see the Dimensions of an object… but they don’t correspond to the measurements?
Please don’t just respond “Blender is not a CAD program”… I know it’s not supposed to be, but there are people out there using it as such… and I’d like to try that too
