LeoCAD 21.06 Title

I have espoused the glorious wonders of LeoCAD on openSUSE before. This is a fantastic application to work with Lego bricks and components in a virtual, safe for your feet, environment.

Gaming Rack Design and Construction

I have collected a number of gaming systems throughout my life and there is little point in having them if they sit in a box or using them takes an annoying level of set-up time, making it fun prohibitive. I was then inspired by Perifractic Retro Recipes video where the computer museum has everything so … Continue reading Gaming Rack Design and Construction

Fusion 360 on Linux | Architectural Design Blathering

I have previously reviewed Fusion 360 and have since been gaining experience using it. I find it to be a very capable CAD application package that I rather enjoy using it too.

Noodlings 11 | Quick Tiling Fusion 360 in the Kitchen

Fusion 360 Review Fusion 360 is a CAD / CAM application with finite element analysis capabilities. I was going through the Autodesk forums and read a lot … Continue reading Noodlings 11 | Quick Tiling Fusion 360 in the Kitchen

Fusion 360 on openSUSE Linux | Review

CAD is one of the things I really enjoy doing. I am most adept at using PTC Creo for my employer. I am able to easily "think" and design ideas as easily in that software as I am able to draw it on a piece of paper. I'm making it a point to get that … Continue reading Fusion 360 on openSUSE Linux | Review

Distracted by LeoCAD Once Again on openSUSE Linux

LeoCAD is an application that I use somewhat frequently. It is available for Linux, Windows and even Mac but I don't have a Windows or Mac machine of which to compare to Linux. I have written about the joys of using LeoCAD before if you are interested in that blathering and at that time I used the … Continue reading Distracted by LeoCAD Once Again on openSUSE Linux

LeoCAD | Free LEGO® CAD Software on openSUSE Linux
