to be honest as a full blown CAD jockey, I found fusion 360 too limiting for what i want to be able to do, I would much rather do the job properly in full CAD than use tools that almost give me the control I want, but dont.

Thanks Grendel.

I just want to do enough to draw up the frames, so perhaps something like Sketchup will do the job.

I was an experienced draughtsman (architectural) but then became a project manager so it wasn't worthwhile learning CAD for the few drawings I was doing.

Dont get me wrong, you can do the job in fusion 360, its just that I am used to the ways of full CAD and find that easier to achieve what I want.
