    CAD software for enclosure designing?

    Hi,

    may I ask those of you who design their own enclosures with the help of the PC, or those who do measurements of existing enclosures and then transfer them to a file, which software you use? Are there any options that aren't that expensive, or better for free, and easy to learn and operate?

    Best regards!

    Free CAD

    SketchUp is free and has been around for a while but I have not tried it because my PC is Pencil & Crayon

    Hi Kay,

    These two are specifically made for speaker boxes, not general furniture. They are small and free programs that I sometimes use, though the Winspeakerz software I use also has a cabinet design feature. Google the following:

    Box-port Design

    Boxnotes

    Regards,

    Richard

    AutoCAD for me. But I am lucky in that I use it for my real work. Still have work to do when taking that file to the CNC.
