If you’re anything like me, you’ll find getting started with SU to be a bit of a struggle if you’ve come from another CAD program (until I tried SU, my only CAD experience was with AutoCAD). For me, leaping from 2D to 3D was probably the biggest problem, but only because I wasn’t used to modeling in three dimensions.

However, I found that once you get the basics down, the rest is very intuitive. There are a plethora of plugins you can get to improve productivity and expand SU’s capabilities. I use it now for just about every project I undertake.

One plugin that I cannot recommend enough is daltxguy’s Cutlist. It’s saved me more than once from not buying enough lumber at the mill.
