 FreeCAD is a general purpose feature-based, parametric 3D modeler for CAD, MCAD, CAx, CAE and PLM, aimed directly at mechanical engineering and product design but also fits a wider range of uses in engineering, such as architecture or other engineering specialties. It is 100% Open Source and extremely modular, allowing for very advanced extension and customization

 FreeCAD is based on OpenCasCade, a powerful geometry kernel, features an Open Inventor-compliant 3D scene representation model provided by the Coin 3D library, and a broad Python API. The interface is built with Qt. FreeCAD runs exactly the same way on Windows, Mac OSX and Linux platforms

• Thank you very much for the program! Thank you for distributing it under a free open source license!
• I'm using version 0.19. Get it from I've found freecad to be as powerful as the costy packages out there, and it's open source. You can compile it (I have) and you can add in plugins as well. I gave it a 4 out of 5 for ease because it's too powerful to be easy, although the tutorials on youtube really go far in smoothing the learning curve. I've designed very complex gear systems after only a couple of days of playing. I now design things, export to stl files, and then 3d printed them. Such freedom!
• Excellent program for the design of buildings and structures. Thanks to the author of the project!
• FreeCad has potential good features but somehow is not intuitive to use. It is time for a clean sheet startover in regards to user features. This is a computer program! There is too much guess work for the user. "Errors" occur with no explanation. There are too many Navigation Styles requiring changing from one to another to utilize every feature. Simple processes are missing such as multiple duplications in a radial pattern in the Sketcher. Maybe I'm just spoiled after using Inventor for 15-20 years. Use engineering terminology in the helps. Carry on. Read more reviews >
• FreeCAD is an open-source parametric 3D modeler made primarily to design real-life objects of any size. Parametric modeling allows you to easily modify your design by going back into your model history and changing its parameters. FreeCAD allows you to sketch geometry constrained 2D shapes and..
