Does anyone know if there exists such a thing such as Lego building classes that cover building things from scratch and designing things using software - specifically Technic-based projects?
I build even simple $20 Technic sets (42090, 42091) and think, "Jezuz, how would I EVER come up with even something THIS simple on my own?" Let alone thing actually complicated.
I've got thousands of dollars in Technics parts here and I doubt I could ever make from scratch anything that didn't look like it was put together by a 2 year old. In the meantime, people are making stuff like this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oz88zGsHSeM
How do you DO that? Just making something TO SCALE is amazing to me.
If no such classes currently exist, this could be a great opportunity for someone to do a Master Class or similar - if it were well done, they were articulate, professional, not cheesy, etc.

Up until recently, I've largely stayed away from MOCing as I didn't feel my building skills were adequate enough. But the more I studied and learned, the greater that confidence became. Then I opened up Stud.io and started building. Low and behold, I've been able to build some pretty awesome stuff (at least in my mind) from those examples.
Youtube also has a few things. A lot that is not so great, some that is awesome. It could be a less formal resource for what you're asking.
As with so much in life, I think this is a skill that has to be developed through actually doing it. To your point, it's just nice when someone is there helping walk you through it!
