Hello all,
Due to the nature of DIY OSH, typically there are few user manuals to go around. What software do you recommend in making pictures of the build. An example build in video of the Cyclops 3D scanner is [www.youtube.com]

The owner of the video has yet to post a reply in the comments to another user requesting the software to produce the video.

I am not looking to produce videos, just user manuals with "lego" like picures for the build instructions and I need the software necessary to do so.

update:
Additionally, coreldraw x7 technical suite is exactly what I am looking for in terms of creating instructions. However, it is not open sourced and very expensive. Are there alternatives?

Inkscape is the open-source alternative to coreldraw and is a very good application for vector graphics. But I suggest to take a look at scribus (also open-source) that is more appropriate for publishing.
