I have been a mechanical designer for decades and have used multiple 3D packages. I just started using Fusion 360 a little over a month ago. IMO it is AWESOME, extremely powerful and easy to learn if you have any prior experience; very much worth the learning curve for those who do not have prior 3D experience IMO. It is free for hobbyists and startups earning <$100k per year, I just got my free license last week. Unbelievable software at the full subscription cost, much less for free. CNC guys should love this software pkg.

FYI, Draftsight is free and fundamentally identical to Autocad for 2D drafting.

Charles A, there is a tutorial on creating surfaces, working on the reciprocating saw model, that may help you with irregular curves and general surfacing.
