Hello forum user

This is my first post. m a newbie to the world of programming. I only know c language. I want to develop a 3D CAD software. But i don't know where to start. I have downloaded the source code of blender but its difficult to understand. Is there any help available on how to start programming blender from scratch or may be how to begin 3D CAD software programming(i.e. any website or book).If there's any 3d cad project under development then plz let me know abt this.

your response will be highly appreciated

Hello cadcrazy,

True, the source code for Blender and other large-scale programs like it can be very confusing to newbies. I understand that you are excited with your newfound knowledge and I see nothing wrong with huge ambitions, however, I must add that this project you want to start is probably way over your head at the moment. The best thing to do is to grow your programming experience, and there's no better way to do that than to get involved with blender! If you'd like to get started and submit some code or other things, just say so and we're more than willing to help you get going! Good luck. :D
