First, many thanks to Frank for providing so much detail. It would appear that we are on the cusp of a great leap forward in affordable capabilities.
Loren – Where is the FABLAB located? Contact information? And, here is the language from the fusion 360 site Frank lined to earlier:
Startup: If your entitlement has been designated as “Startup, ” You may use the service if You are (a) a company, startup, or home-based business that generates less than $100,000 (or equivalent in other currency) per year from the total sale of goods or services, or (b) an individual using the service for personal non-commercial projects, hobbies, or personal learning.
It certainly appears that you or any other hobbyist should qualify based on sub-paragraph (b).

well, I called and talked to someone and said I was a hobbyist, and that I was not using it for profit based activities, and the person I talked to (of course not using
straightforward language) told me it wasn't free for my uses. Since I used to work for a software development company, I am sensitive to illegal use of software. I have not
settled on/learned a particular CAD program, and have downloaded the blender tutorial, plus when my schedule calms down, I was planning on using the CAD learning lab at the local
FABLAB here. May have to revisit the 360 site. Seems a number of model railroaders have settled on Fusion360 as their go to CAD.
