I don't really know anything about this but some of my friends parents have used a device from circle to monitor, manage and limit their screen time. Just go to this link and look around. 

 

The thing is I don't know how you would be able to limit his internet time but at the same time not limit his screen time without just monitoring him. Like if he has access to the internet for the 3d modeling and photoscan stuff than he can do other stuff on the interent.

 

I think the circle devices have a thing to only allow certain websites but I do not know for sure. You would just have to read up on that on their website.

I feel so freaking bad for all the people without PCS that are having to pay so much because of the gpu shortage and just the prices right now. I just feel so thankful that I was able to build my pc for MSRP (with the exception of my CPU; see below) in November right before everything got terrible! Good luck to everyone trying to get a GPU. 🙂

 

 

A little about me: A person with a chromebook in a big world were windows computers dominate the consumer and market space. He has one chance to finally get himself a Windows computer. But wait, the scalpers, they take his cpu causing him to have to wait for it for three whole months even though he has also the other parts. To this day, he still waits for his long-lost ryzen 3 3100. He hopes that one day it will arrive.. (update: it arrived in March and now I have a fully functioning pc)

Some routers have cut off times, where you restrict certain devices accessing the net at certain times. They're easy to set up and can help your son better manage and schedule his time.

In your router settings you should be able to block a Mac address or set time limits.

I get what you're trying to do but at the same time doing work like 3D modelling it can be very beneficial to have internet since you may have to lookup techniques, controls, documentation etc. I get trying to limit mindless usage of the internet but I think you should look for a solution other than pulling the plug. I don't really have any recommendations for software though since this is something I have never had the need to look into.

The easiest way is setting up 2 routers, one for your kid (can be a cheap one), the another for the rest family members, and you just unplug your kid's router whenever you want.

Not sure how you plan to balance 3d modelling and just browsing the internet when ,like mentioned above, one of the best sources for 3d learning of any kind is the internet (especially you tube). Not to mention that most of the standardised parts are available on line for this purpose and you need internet access to actually work, for an example if you are working on any assembly with linear motion you will download exact models of linear rails mono blocks etc that are standardised.
