I use Illustrator, Photoshop and Rhino running Windows 7. I’ve also got Visual Mill tool path generator for CNC. Problem is, it don’t run on 7 and upgrades are beyond my means. I’ve got an older machine but was going to dedicate that to running the CNC and keep development on my current box.
Maybe Linux and Windows emulators is the key— but previous attempts to install it foundered on my own ignorance and lack of experience with programming and command-line operations. This was years ago and things were still under development.
Any advice on idiot-proof versions of Linux, 3-d modelers, and/or windows emulators? Or just pay the damn money?
I can’t recommend any one best way to run win under Linux but here is a start....
Linux has come a long way with desktop computing and not much command line experience is needed.
Well you can download blender for free and learn how to use it with tutorials. May I ask what you use Rhino for? I’m always curious how niche modellers are used, it seems like Inventor, 3D Studio, Maya, etc get all the attention.
