I started using Onshape last year. It’s free, can run on most computers as it’s browser based. 

I started using Fusion this year and wouldn’t look back (assuming computers can run it). They’re similar in they way you draw. Onshape seems to be a stripped back version of Fusion. We started with these tutorials on YT and students picked it up within a few weeks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yPKMSb6ja8&t=1s <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yPKMSb6ja8&t=1s>

Here’s a headphone stand I wasp laying around with. The renderings are fantastic. https://a360.co/30V5IbX <https://a360.co/30V5IbX>

Change of topic.

I am trying to decide which CAD to use with kids. onshape or fusion 360
I am a novice at both myself.
Is one easier than the other?
Will be using it for preparing /designing for CNC and Laser cutting
We dont have access to desktop computers so students will be using their own devices and as far as I know these programs are available online?
