Hi All,

Been messing around with TC Pro21 now for a few months & still struggle to get to grips with a simple workflow method.I come from zero CAD experience. All I want to try & do is say model as a simple box (of any kind) with say a hinged lid & lock & then produce 2D dimensioned drawings that can be sent to machine shop. Can anyone recommend a simple tutorial or like that could step me through the process. TC is such a complex prog from someone new & am currently bashing my head against the wall. Maybe someone has produced tutorials or something on Lynda.com Would really appreciate any pointers.

Thks,  John

Not what you requested John, but I thought I'd share this with you.

For inspiration and positive-encouragement, you might like taking a look at the "Garden Bench".pdf that Forum-member Up (another John) shared a while back.
A 3D Model that is "exploded", dimensioned and detailed... ready to be built.

That Topic Post is here (Reply #1).  The Garden Bench PDF.
Excellent example of applied use of TurboCAD.

Have a look at www.textualcreations.ca. Don's tutorials take you step by step thru the project, explaining each step throughly. There's also a wide variety of projects to select from.
