Hi! I will go straight to the point, a close friend of mine has access to a laser cutter in the university and I wanted to design my custom inserts in mdf wood for some of my games, I already designed a foam core solution and I just wanted to remake them in a different material.

I need some advice regarding what software people use to design them, right now I'm using Fusion 360, but I saw videos of some people even using Adobe Ilustrator! I dont want to spend weeks and weeks trying to learn how to use Fusion 360 properly just to find that everyone else is doing it in another program with an easier learning curve.

Thanks!

I use CorelDraw X6 because I am very familiar with it. Our laser is driven by a print driver directly from CorelDraw. But Illustrator is a similar product and will do the trick too. Inkscape is the open source version of those 2 software packages and is available for download. I am not the best person to speak to in terms of usability. I have been using CorelDraw since version 1.

I do my designing in Illustrator, but the laser I use works with CorelDraw, so I've learned the basics of that as well.
