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.

On par with paid cad systems for the most part. Very strong support.

Review Summary

There is only one major problem with this software compared with other systems, and that is if you reference a previous layer in the current layer (points, or lines etc) and then modify those previous layers, what you reference ends up being misplaced to somewhere else. This bug is being worked on and if you know about it can avoid it. Other than that, it has add on's for fluid simulation, assembly, fasteners, lithoplane, and many more.

Is confusing to beginners as most cad systems are. Uses workbenches which is a different paradigm then most other systems.

FreeCAD is a powerful CAD tool for designing structures in detail and it’s very convenient.

Review Summary

If you are a total CAD newbie like me, you might find it a bit overwhelming at first. The interface is somewhat less user-friendly I feel. Once you get the hang of it, though, it’s a blast to use. FreeCAD lets you design all sorts of stuff- from simple 2D drawings to complex 3D models. And the good thing about this tool is that it is highly customizable. I can easily extensions and plugins as per my needs.
