Hello,I'm having a look at "how to start" (even tough I've already read quite a lot now).My first test would be to create a ESP8266 based IR HVAC controller. My main steps would be (as my own learning curve) :1/ Measure a NodeMCU v3 and related components I want to pack2/ Design an enclosure for all that3/ 3D Print itI'm specifically worried about precise placement of holes/connectors and the likes.I've found out that FreeCAD could be used. Anyone having a link to some tutorial on how to actually go from a design/idea/existing piece of hardware to an actual precise 3D model?I might start by modeling the actual pieces I want to use and later on fit that into some design.
