Hello all

Post by Oggie62 » Thu Jul 04, 2019 9:20 pm

Hello all from Malta (in case you never heard of it,it's an island in the middle of the Mediterranean) . I am completely new to CAD software and I took the plunge due to necessity. I need to get a bracket made - nothing special or needing high precision and a freehand sketch would be enough but I can't draw a quick sketch. 19 years ago I had a massive stroke that caused a condition called Locked in Syndrome. That left me completely paralyzed and mute. The only movement I have is my head and I use it to use my computer. For QCAD I have to use very often the Command Line as using the Dwell Clicker (like I do) is impossible. I joined the forum because forums are always full of tricks & tips.

Hi Andrew,
Yes, it is an effort but I don't have time-restrictions (I live in a nursing home) - I can stay on my laptop almost all day....in fact it keeps me busy (and sane). What takes me an hour to do would probably take a "normal" person maybe 10 minutes. Everything is slow and laborious but at least it's possible.

Regards
Manuel
