Is there any way to make these sales last longer? I always would like to take advantage of them, but never have time to drop what I am doing to rush and design a part I will need in the future in less than 48 hours during the middle of a work week... I guess that the nature of them is that you post them when you have extra time/inventory for short periods, but just expressing my desire.

If my "post count" stands for anything, let me just say...one of my favorite materials for drilling and hack-sawing is aluminum. That being said, stainless steel is one of the best materials for many applications, and...it is very hard to drill and cut. SO...if you desire a stainless steel bracket?...please strongly consider the option of a water-jetted cut from BBS.

I have received no compensation from BBS, and I regard laser-cutting an water-jetting (from any vendor) to be a milestone in DIY actualization...

OH man.... this is exactly what I was looking for (well, I wasn't looking for this at the time, but was on my list of things to investigate). I literally had just learend to operate the waterjet cutter and create basic designs, and then techshop shuts down out of no where (plus had a few months left on my prepaid membership). Anyway, talk about disappointing... could have used a waterjet practically as much as I wanted, for pennies on the dollar :(

Anyway, haven't checkout out what to expect for pricing yet... hopefully it's not too scary... depending on what it ends up being, I might be a very regular customer. Time to boot up Fusion360, and start figuring out some designs for stuff I need.

Time to boot up Fusion360
Any advice for someone starting out on Fusion 360? BBS has their own program for 2D, which I found to be very easy and intuitive, but I am looking into 3D printing, and Fusion 360 keeps getting recommended to me.

We've been using Fusion 360 at our 3D animation studio when we need to cross over into CAD design. So far, I think it is the best overall compromise of functionality and ease of learning for someone not doing CAD work full time. That said, there is still a learning curve. But they have their own online tutorials and there are a number of them on YouTube as well.

My biggest complaint is that the system gets slow and more prone to errors and odd behavior when projects become large and complicated. My second complaint is that they make changes and update the software somewhat frequently. While getting new and improved features is nifty, changes mid-project can be annoying and disruptive. But I'd think Fusion 360 would be a very good choice for just about any e-bike project that I can imagine.

I'd love to show some stuff that we've done in Fusion 360, but it is still under NDA at this time. Bummer.

Oh - as for specific advise on learning. What always has worked best for me is to define a simple project and jump in. For e-bikes, maybe it is a battery case or torque arm. But just pick something and slog through until it is done. Just jumping in and doing tutorials in order to learn has never worked well for me. I need the exploration to be goal oriented.
