Welcome to the forum! Please start a new thread, post what you tried to do - we'll help you to model whatever you need.

I'll add, please post in the Help section of the forum and include the 2D drawings and pictures to your post. As PrzemoF said, we'll help you any way we can, even if it would be to advise you to use a different kind of 3D modeler. ;) Though that is looking like less of an issue these days with the work being done with NURBS surfaces.

Looks great - thanks for sharing! Could you post photos of the 3D printed parts when they are ready?

Decauville Baladeuse d'inspection. This is a drawing of a small wagon at the Tramway de Pithiviers museum. The scale is 1:13.7 for use on garden railways, 45 mm gauge. It has been 3d printed.

Cheers,

The last device modelled in 0.16, prevous - in older version (may be 0.14)

They have not very high resolution due to my current screen. If needed, I can make larger ones.

I'm going to extend our old furniture. There are my very first steps with Freecad.

In the past I used the blender to create the 3D model and libreCAD to become the 2D technical drawing. Unfortunately the job had to be done twice in this way. That's why I chose the freeCAD to perform this two tasks using only one tool. There are one drawing page for every piece of furniture in freeCAD document. For myself I found the View-Panel of Arch very useful to draw a pieces in one view. The single parts and connected dimension can be added separately to the drawing as well. In this way I hope to become for every Anbau part an useful 2D technical drawing.
Attached you can see the result for Anbau-1.

Very cool model including the drawings. Just a question. I have never build my own Schrank. But if I would build one I would make the böden a bit smaler than the inner width is. But in the model it seams the böden exactly fits into the schrank !?
