In fact I would love to do that...
but it's a question of time ( I think it will take a lot of time before understanding what others already have done and before one can get productive )
and, as you say, my needs for the moment are a little bit different.
But that will change with time... So, who knows... maybe some time later I can contribute.
Anyway, what I am doing now is good as I learn a lot.
By the way, my original goal was to use our CNC machine in the makerspace with only free open source software. I did a lot of research on which programs I could use, and first tryed HeeksCAd, and then came to FreeCAD.
