    When I want to make something that I need, I first browse ://www.thingiverse.com/ to see if there is anything in there that would be suitable or near to what I’m trying to make.

    Then I import that STL file into my SCAD App and cut the file unto useful pieces, and by hiding the sections I don’t need I can then save what’s left as a new STL file.

    Now you open that as a new STL file in your SCAD App. and import your new STL file and begin to add new pieces to it or join that STL object to other STL pieces till you get the shape and size that you require, it beat the hell out of having to learn code...

    Here is a Photo of Nifty’s latch as an illustration as to how to separate, move or join pieces together, an STL file works in much the same way...
