    Hello all, I'm new to electronics and find it pretty intriguing. I've got a little project I need help with and that is taking a 12vdc (car battery) and stepping it down to 3vdc at a high current (variable between 30-70amps) can anyone point me in the right direction or to some material to read. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forum!
    If you're new to electronics then building your own DC-DC converter would be a major challenge, probably frustrating, and more expensive than simply buying one. I'd recommend you cut your teeth on a simpler project.
