Hi, I’m running a new community looking at the software people use to model for 3D printing, and in particular the free software available. If you’re using SketchUp, 123D Design, Blender, FreeCAD or any other similar, be great to hear about it.

I don’t see PTC Creo Elements there - that’s the best I found.

Autodesk Fusion 360 (free for makers/start-ups), OnShape Beta (fully in cloud, free with the limit of open projects). Both very interesting options with strong background.

Thanks for all those suggestions/comments/. I’ll add them to the links list and categories list as well.

I’m using Autodesk Fusion 360 - as startup/non commercial. Complicated but extremely versatile, cloud based(data only), software.

Actually I’m digging myself through the CAM module so I can create milling programs from my designs. Creating 3D prints works smooth.

I used openSCAD for our @Mr_Beam project as I am a programmer.
