      "This seems to be too technical for me. I have no idea of what deep technical functionality it is going to do. But I am interested in the 3D printing even though I have not done even one of it."

      "I love this app and I don't know anything about 3d rendering. I was able to create figures immediately, and I could rotate them, move them around, change textures and colors with no problem. When I started looking at sending things to a 3d printer, it started referring to ZBrush, which looks like a completely different tool... and that one costs money. It took away from my initial good feeling and it felt like I'd been handed a piece of trialware."

      "Very decent modeling software that has a reasonable learning curve and a free version, for those not needing a more intensive experience. It helped me make quite a few models for my miniatures war-games and I'll definitely use it again."

      "I use (well, actually, support) a lot of Engineers and we use quite a few Autodesk products and Fusion 360 is great for a variety of CAD drawings and it's nice because our Engineers can sign in and have this accessible the whole time they're working. It isn't cheap (but no CAD suites are) but you can download a free trial before purchase to allow your designers to try it out. It does a really great job on modelling and 3D printing; truly professional results."

      "AutoCAD is exceptional 3D software for 3D printing. Frankly, it's the best one around right now! I do a lot of 3D modeling for my business and the printing feature has always worked flawlessly. I also need to share those drawings using a variety of methodologies and I've found the ability to do so nearly effortless. I highly recommend this software!"
