Gonna give FreeCAD a go for modelling a case for my programmable load, in the interests of using FOSS software where possible.

@s0 I use it sometimes. It can really be a pain for complex parts and has no assembly support. Very good for simpler parts and viewing models made by others though.

@adz yeah I'm already stuck trying to extrude (pad??) from a sketch

@s0 One thing that pained me was you have to have a dimension to each perpendicular plane. Even if you leave the values as they are. The dimension can be an alignment of some kind also. It just needs to be 100% constrained exactly.
