Written By

The mechanical engineers and product designers among you, but even those active in a wider range of engineering and architecture, might consider reading on, as here we present the product called FreeCAD.

This is an open-source general purpose parametric 3D modeller for CAD, CAx, MCAD, CAE and PLM. It is extremely modular and as such allows advanced extension and customization.

So, with FreeCAD you can deal with 3D operations on complex shape types. It supports natively a variety of concepts, including nurbs, brep and boolean operations or filters and parameter-driven objects can be custom and fully programmed in Python.

It supports import and export to standard formats, including DXF, SVG, STL, STEP, IGES, OBJ, DAE, IFC or OFF, and offers various other features you might find out more about when proceeding to the download.
