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 use them as a base to build other objects. It contains many components to adjust dimensions or extract design details from 3D models to create high quality production ready drawings. FreeCAD is a multiplatfom (Windows, Mac and Linux), highly customizable and extensible software. It reads and writes to many open file formats such as STEP, IGES, STL, SVG, DXF, OBJ, IFC, DAE and many others, making it possible to seamlessly integrate it into your workflow. FreeCAD is designed to fit a wide range of uses including product design, mechanical engineering and architecture. Whether you are a hobbyist, a programmer, an experienced CAD user, a student or a teacher, you will feel right at home with FreeCAD Features - You get modern Finite Element Analysis (FEA) tools, experimental CFD, dedicated BIM, and Geodata - Provides a robot simulation module that allows you to study robot movements and many more features - FreeCAD really is a Swiss Army knife of general-purpose engineering toolkits - Freedom to build what you want, create 3D from 2D and back - FreeCAD allows you to sketch geometry constrained 2D shapes and use them as a base to build other objects - FreeCAD is designed to fit a wide range of uses including product design, mechanical engineering and architecture Categories3D Modeling Follow FreeCAD ## User Reviews - This software is really really great! Of course it has things here and there that could be better but that's because some users forget that this is an open source project. It needs to be assisted by all of the users, developers and everyone else who can contribute to it! This app is great to make 3D models to 3D print! Also to design blueprints of apartments, boats, lots of things! - DMG refuses to open on MacOSX 10.11.6, El Capitan. No way to use the software?
