Cuttle is an incredible design tool for making intricate and complex designs with very little effort. The tool uses the concept of chained modifiers to maintain clear dependencies between simple primitives like circles and rectangles and your final result. That means you can make a beautiful mandala of complex, repeating rotational geometry, and decide later that you'd like to change one parameter of the original circle without redoing all of your work. This one tool made me about 100x more efficient at making laser cut designs. I only learned it recently, so this will be more of an overview and a collaborative learning session than an expert lesson.
