Re: Tutorial on creating a 3D model of a car?

Do you want to create a model of the whole car, piece by piece? Thats a lot of parts ;).

Why not start with only one part? I don't think you will find a piece by piece tutorial of a whole car...

can i import a jpg to use as the layoyt?
One thing you can do to accelerate your work, is:

1 - Import your jpg into Inkscape
2 - Trace your jpg on Inkscape
3 - Export to svg on Inkscape
4 - Import the svg on FreeCad

From that you'll get some lines, and hopefully save you from some work ;)

Re: how to open rvt file with freecad?

You are talking about 3D DWGs right? FC cannot import these. From wiki : Note that at this time, it is not possible to import 3D DWG in FreeCAD. 3D data is embedded as binary .SAT (ACIS) data, a proprietary and undocumented format. You can only import 2D DWGs. So, with IFC, you'll get much more deta...

Re: how to open rvt file with freecad?

As far as I know, you can only open rvt files with Revit or autodesk viewers...

Someone would have to reverse engineer the file format to be able to create an importer for Freecad or another CAD.

Re: novel coronavirus, COVID-19

Actually the topic is set as "announcement" which makes it appear on top of each subforum. I should say that I also don't like it much because this thread has no direct link to FC software and newcomers probably don't feel really concerned. I found a bit strange too... I know people are suffering (...
