Is on shape a realistic starting point for a CAD beginner?
I've been working to get the hang of OnShape for about 12 hrs now. I've watched youtube tutorials and taken the onstage selfpaced classes -- but I'm still struggling to feel like I understand how to build within the application. I'm trying to build something akin to a beehive, and I can't seem to understand how to build the separate sides of the boxes and assemble them together within onshape. Unless I'm mistaken, all of the onshape tutorials, even those intended for beginners, say that they are for people who already know CAD and who are looking to transition to the sleeker model. Is there a path to mastery for users like me? Or, as an absolute beginner, should I give up and try AutoDesk or Solidworks?
