I would like to make a new wooden case for my computer but the thing is im not the best at 3D software. I have made many 2d drawings of my idea but I would like to see what it would look like 3d so does anyone know of a 3d software program that is free and very easy to figure out?

I would suggest Blender, but it does have a little bit of a learning curve.

If you are in a rush, and want a quick output, then SketchUp might be an easier option.

For tutorials, I would look on YouTube and Google, nothing that I can directly recommend.


Also, I now feel that SketchUp would fit your needs. You can import images easily, and have it all modeled to a real scale.

Any way we'd get to see a final design? I'm interested in seeing how a custom wooden computer case, that isnt a TARDIS, would look like.

yea sure but the whole thing would not be done for a while. I could take pics while making it if that is something that is requested.
