Hello all, I have a friend who wants to learn CAD, and also have his 10yr old son learn. Both are absolute beginners to both CAD and mechanical design. I set him up with a free acct and showed him how to make a simple box. What is the 1st tutorial he should do? Is it "CAD Basics"? or "Onshape Fundamentals: CAD"? Or other?

Thanks for your time.

    They should start with the CAD Basics pathway. Those courses are designed for absolute beginners to any 3D parametric feature-based CAD tool. The Onshape Fundamentals: CAD pathway is for users who are new to Onshape, but have some experience with other CAD tools. I would recommend that path after they complete CAD Basics.
