Today marks the last of MAKE’s monthly “editor’s choice” hangouts on air of 2012, live and online on Google+. This month, Michael Castor from the Maker Shed and I will introduce a few free (or cheap) CAD and CAM tools. Many of them are fantastic for use in CNC machining and 3D printing, so this hangout will be especially useful to those of you who recently purchased (or plans to purchase) a 3D printer or CNC machine for the holidays.

Designing and machining things in 3D can be difficult to wrap your brain around, but there are a few great ways to learn. Tune in at 2pm PST/5pm EST on the +MAKE page so we can tell you all about them, or catch the show later on the MAKE YouTube page.


Eric is a Mechanical Engineer with interests in machining, mass manufacturing, product design and kinetic art. While not building things, he enjoys skiing, cycling, and juggling.
