Re: How many man hours would FreeCAD need to reach feature parity with SolidWorks/SolidEdge?

After reading some of the responses, care to share what your thoughts/impressions are? So reading Realthunder's roadmap looks quite compelling. But I still think that fixing the kernel issues is the best first step. When we have the resources to start doing this project seriously, we will reach out...

Re: How many man hours would FreeCAD need to reach feature parity with SolidWorks/SolidEdge?

So just to be clear, I'm really at the "feasibility study" stage of this idea. From what I've learned so far, it looks like the best place to start would be at the kernel, which currently lacks thread protection, making multi-threading difficult or impossible. After that, probably the biggest issue ...

I understand that the term "feature parity" is loaded with some baggage, and in my case I'm really using it as shorthand for "does what I need it to do, and what I expect other people need it to do" which is obviously a very subjective statement. I'm going to address some...

Re: Discussion: FreeCAD is not ready for 1.0

Hi all, I'm a startup CEO and we need parametric CAD for our part and assembly design. I'm also a Linux/FOSS fanatic, and would really like to be able to do our CAD in Linux, but unfortunately FreeCAD is the only option and not entirely to the level we need it. The interface is too clunky and I beli...

How many man hours would FreeCAD need to reach feature parity with SolidWorks/SolidEdge?

I'm a startup CEO and we need CAD for our part and assembly designs. I'm a Linux and FOSS fanatic, but in its current state, FreeCAD is insufficient for our needs. I've bitten the bullet and decided to have our server Linux based, and our clients Windows based. I would really like to go back to a fu...
