I am a professor at a medical school, and I am getting increasingly into building custom instruments for my research. I am an advanced user of Fusion360. Currently I need to design a very simple PCB that hosts a matrix of 24 microswitches and diodes. It cannot get any simpler than that, but I have never designed a PCB. Would any of you be interested in walking me through the process using Zoom or Teamviewer, so that I can learn the basics while at the same time achieving my goal? I am a fast learner, but if it takes >1 hr I’d be happy to pay you a commensurate hourly wage for your efforts.

Should be pretty easy to do.
Might help if I have time tonight.
