I've recently settled on using CoCreate for my future builds (anyone remember the Helix Barrel?) and I just wanted some help learning how to use it. Does anyone have a good tutorial they could provide me?

I know Alokin and I use cocreate, I don't know of anyone else. Just try figuring it out yourself first, that's what I did. But, for fun, i'll give you a quick write-up of how to make a 3x3 corner piece.

1. Open up 2d copilot and draw a 19 mm square.
2. Find the "extrude" tool, and extrude the square up 19mm, turning it into a 19 mm cube.
3. Go into workplane, and click new workplane on face, and select a face to create a workplane on.
4. Draw a small slightly curved line in the corner of the face (I don't know the exact measurements)
5. Do this to two adjacent faces, so all of the "drawn-on" corners are touching each other.
6. Extrude the small little corners up (I don't know the measurements) Now you should have a cube, with 3 little prongs sticking out of 1 corner.
7. Fill in the space between the prongs, to make the corner attachment, by creating workplanes, drawing rectangles, and extruding them up. (you must draw the rectangle on your new workplane or else the program has nothing to extrude)
8. Go into "blend", to round off all of the edges. I usually use somewhere between 1mm and 1.5mm for cosmetic edges, and .3-.5 mm for any edges that are part of the mechanism.
Done!

Hope this helps, I pretty sure there is a faster way, but this is how I do it. Good luck! :D

Actually I'm using CoCreate and now I'm pretty good at it (100% designed puzzle with a new mechanism), so I think I can help you, but, can you be more precise than just a tutorial? (ex: how to make a sphere, etc)


Cheers

No, I was thinking of a video/pdf/written tutorial on simply getting started and all the tools, and I was wondering if one (already) existed.

Actually, you got CoCreate's tutorials (when you open it, one of the two pop-ups).

This is nice for starting, but after the best is just testing the buttons and all the options.

They're the quickstart projects. If it doesn't just pop up, go into help and find them. They're short little video tutorials for making simple pieces such as a lego brick.

The quickstart projects are very useful for starting, as the name says ;)


If it doesn't pop-up, I think it's in the «?» menu that you can find him

The best is just practicing.
