@FreeCAD Hello, any recommended tutorials/guides for those with minimal/no prior experience? I tried to model a "portable speaker box" to dimensions, but after 30 min I gave up ("I just need a simple box and carve some round holes, it can't be that hard!"). I got lost in the UI since I did not know any of the keywords/modes/procedures.
@normand @FreeCAD that's exactly what I experienced - I have some experience with 3D modelling, but none with CAD. After the initial frustration of failing to a) add a box and a cylinder, b) boolean subtract, I realized that I need to find some tutorials for those with no CAD experience, and hence my original question.
the second one is in the XZ plane iirc, but because I defined the walls I had to actually make a separate sketch with just the circle in order to extrude it, I thought I could just select the circle defined inside the rectangle and make a pocket with it, but it would select the whole XZ sketch and pad the walls from the other sketch
