    Marking-off and Layout

    Hi all

    I like to come up to speed, being a newbie, to design, mark-out, and layout my ideas before fabrication.

    What are the good sources of information; especially on the textbook side, then training video's, and finally websites.

    I like to see and read, then do; that's how I learn. Thanks all.

    The onshape stuff is pretty impressive. Their free version is pretty decent.

    If you end up doing stuff with tubular materials, keep this website handy. Free site that makes full scale paper templates for most joints you're likely to see.
