What design skills are needed to use the CAD tools in Zel X?

The design tools in Zel X are easy to learn and easy to use, for all levels of users. You can start designs 3D-first, dragging common shapes and shop parts from the pre-populated library, or take the more traditional 2D sketch-to-3D approach.
