I tried loads of CAD software before I got my 3D printer, found most either too simple or far to complicated to use. If AutoCAD is new to you and you find it tricky I found Fusion 360 from Autodesk very intuitive to use and has all the functions.

Not sure whether they do a Russian version but there is a personal use version which is free:

They recently changed the licensing and seems the only limit is working on 10 files at a time but you can switch projects between editable or readonly so no problem for me.

If you can make a full scale model of an E50 I will 3D print it for you :)

Hi) in general, there is nothing special to write about El)) well, the rear left shock absorber mount came off, that same evening I made a new mount and welded it on. generally boring workdays))
But the family has a lot of new things)
In general, yesterday we had a new four-legged friend) a mixture of an Eastern European husky with something))) The story is this - my wife went for a walk with our son and he followed them 2 km o.o Considering that the street is -25 degrees, there are a lot of wandering evil dogs, we decided to take this giant to ourselves) For now, he shares the roof with Elgrand in a cozy garage)
Soon I will build a house for Marty)
Oh yes, his name is Marty)
As for pets)
We have a cat named Elvis in our house. We found him in our village when we bought the house. It took a long time to treat him.
We also have dogs. Sky is Luba's dog. Lyuba is my wife) And recently in December we rescued a puppy, my wife named him Sam)) in general, we have a big family)))

cat Elvis, dog Sam

Sky

Marty

Hi) I ordered a weapon to fight rust) a welding machine, a compressor) I will soon cut, weld and paint) so far I have served the engine - I changed the glow plugs, the valve cover gasket, adjusted the valve clearance, drowned the egr, cleaned the intake manifold. then I plan to repair the front suspension, replace the bearings of the gearbox)
