As a hobby i do a bit of woodworking. I usually make all my plans after looking at either a photo or an actual piece of furniture and scratching my head for a while and scribbling on some paper. I was thinking of using a 3d modelling program to come up with better designs, would you think blender would be a good fit for this? I guess the things i’d need would go along these lines:
‘Snap to grid’ to the nearest millimeter for everything
‘Layers’ so i could separate the different construction stages (eg the back, then the sides, then carcass, trimmings, drawers)
Some way of checking that none of the pieces foul on each other
Any suggestions? Anyone done this before?
