At this point, load times are about a minute on a Ryzen 3600 desktop, and the view window i...

Re: Scaling a model for 3d Printing

Does Draft Clone work on meshes as well? I am trying to scale an OBJ import from SweetHome3D, but it appears that the only way to scale meshes is to convert them to shapes first in the Part workbench. The downside is that the mesh conversion process increses the file size by 5x or so. Is that so? So...

Re: 1.7% Market Share of CAD Software

If the software is good, and it's well beyond good, it will attract users. With the current stability, power, usability, and multi-platform, it's just a matter of time before FreeCAD displaces everybody on the lower cost part of the CAD market. That should attract more donations. It seems to me tha...

FreeCAD 16 is easier to use, so we prefer it for entry-level workflows in order to onboard newcomers to our project readily. This brings up a question to this community - what...
