My Friends,

I want to share my thoughts on FreeCAD. FreeCAD is Free and Open Source Software!

Please, help support the Free, Open Source Community! I am not an affiliate of FreeCAD, I only want to support their excellent effort!


Here is my first attempt to draw something in 3D or technically 2.5D I believe:


I am very impressed! I am no expert and am only learning, but I am super impressed for how easy this is to pickup and start using! Lots of great help videos out there and lots of very good support also!


  • Shift + Right Mouse Click = Rotate.
  • Ctrl + Right Mouse Click = Move Model.


I hope soon, I will be onto complex models that I can only dream of atm. wink

Best wishes, stay safe and well My Friends,

i came across freecad 2 years ago. in the past i did a lot of work on autodesk software (autocad, 3dsmax). freecad is great but sometimes you will find it difficult to work with.

i had to construct a new sensorplate for a BLDC motor and did it with freecad (v0.19 dailybuild) without problems.

great software!

The great Nikola Tesla:

Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. This idea is not novel. Men have been led to it long ago go by instinct or reason. It has been expressed in many ways, and in many places, in the history of old and new. We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who drives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians, and in many hints and statements of thinkers of the present time. Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic? If static, our hopes are in vain; if kinetic - and this we know it is for certain - then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.
