Hello, this is my first forum post in a while and I think this is probably the most appropriate part of the forum to post this in.
I just finished my first year at college and took an AutoCAD class. The program that I used in the class was AutoCAD Civil3D 2015 and from what I know, it is very similar to ‘regular’ AutoCAD. I still have access to the student version (which is the same as a regular version only with a watermark when printing) and was just curious as to what anyone thought about this program in general.
Designing and making my own yoyo has always been on my bucket list and now that I have access to a professional program and actually know the basics of it, I should probably do something with it before I forget what I learned!
Naturally I have a few questions:
How ‘easy’ is it to design a yoyo on a CAD program? Assuming one knows how to use it of course.
How ‘easy’ is it to send your design to a local machine shop and get exactly what you made?
How much would it cost to make a few aluminum yoyos?
Thoughts on the program that I am using?
I understand I am asking a lot of questions and that the answers to these questions are probably floating around the forum if I looked. Also, I really want to do this just for fun / as a personal project, not to sell or make a profit. Any help is appreciated! Thank you.
