I need to find a 3d modeler for designing printed items in Linux. I'd use Fusion 360, but it's not available.

I love drawing 2D items in Fusion 360 and then giving them depth/height/volume. If you have a suggestion for a program that incorporates that, please, suggest away. Boosts welcome. #3DPrinting #Linux

If you have any programming background, you may find that will suit you.

You describe an object in 3D components including extrusions of 2D shapes, including complex polygons.

You can even export shapes to OpenSCAD code.

That sounds complex and versatile.

Sounds like I should watch a few tutorials and see what I think. Thanks for the suggestion.

@thraeryn

The Inkscape steps are optional.

It is possible to do very precise and interesting work within OpenSCAD alone.
