Cad 3D - 2D what are using?

    I am looking at moving from Corel to something a little more industry standard that hopefully has 3d capabilities. I generally have my template cutting and engraving done outside my workshop. I find that Corel output these days is getting quite exotic as many small cutting places are using 3d cad cam software to drive the routers

    I am wondering what you blokes out there who design projects on computers are using.

    For interest sake here is a project that I designed and had the templates cut by a local CNC outfit. The source DNA is quite obvious.

    Rhinoceros 5 and RhinoCAM. But I'm thinking of going to Fusion 360. You can get it for free if you make less than a certain amount with it a year.

    Rhino 5. But Solidworks is a sure bet for anything that needs to be CNC-ed or rapid prototypes.
