I'm looking to build an app with ASP.Net Core server side (Angular 4 client side) that incorporates some type of CAD illustration in a user form. I'm not actually looking to pull in a full CAD program but I'd like to have a list of input boxes and dropdowns
on the client side that manipulate a visualization of a preset type of shape or construct. The desire is to have visual feedback on data entry for the end users.
The challenge is that I'm right at the beginning of my research and trying to figure out what my viable options are for starting my development. I haven't seen any NuGet packages expressly built for this type of work and I get the impression that I'll likely
have to pull in resources from a few different places.
Are there any good starting points for this type of thing that anyone's here is aware of? While I doubt that I'd need to build an application from scratch here it's probably a matter of grabbing the right tools for the job and I'm still not 100% sure what
those are yet.

you will need to build a UI to manage the cad object tree. (I assume you are familiar with standard object/drawing patterns).

I'm a few steps further in my research and it looks like I may want to create my geometry in Blender and export to Three.Js. I'll have to try some basic shapes and see how well the sizing math works but at least for now this looks like it might be my best
