Default Wanna build my own boxes

Okay I need a program that will give me cut sheets for enclosures. I am trying to learn to build enclosures myself. I have tried to use WinISD and it's french to me, any ideas

Why a cutsheet? Just use sketchup and "build" it then write down what each piece was.

or there was a program called cutlist pro iirc. Its a free trial.

I just need something that will allow a sketch-up really, I guess a cut sheet is a bit much. I need to get a new hobby and what better than building boxes

I just measure my fitting space and think of volume i need for the sub(s) and just goto google sketchup if i need to create a box with a tight or crafty fit with notches and things. If it is a normal rectangular box then that is the easiest thing to do(you dont need anything but basic arithmetic).

Guys, he cant use winisd - he cant even design the box let alone draw it correctly.

No offense, but currently you are better off paying us designers until you have learned enough to comfortably do it yourself.

^^^ He's gotta start the hobby somewhere; can't expect him to be perfect immediately.

This guide helped me out initially...

I have better results using pencil, paper and math then using WinISD. I currently have a box that I designed myself using the methods listed above, I had the specs checked out before I had it built. My honest reason for not building my own boxes is not having the proper tools. Now since you made that comment I will learn to make my own
