I start with elevations in AutoCAD, then model in Fusion, and then cut list in Sketchup.

Generally, I dont like Sketchup. It’s just so damn quirky. It has a low learning curve and most people can jump right in and start modeling but so many things that should be easy seem to be a bear in Sketchup.

Fusion has a much higher learning curve but it makes sense once you get going. The thing that slows me down with Fusion is when I try to do the whole thing parametrically. It can be tough to get everything to work together. But if you know the exact dimensions that you need it will go really quickly.
