Paper comparing OpenSCAD with FreeCAD

Postby mfasano » Thu Jul 02, 2020 12:58 pm

Here is a paper I came across. I don't know if it has been discussed before.
It compares scripting in FreeCAD with OpenSCAD.

They conclude that FreeCAD is harder to model with scripting, but added flexibility and being able to write to formats like STEP, make it the better option.

This is the fourth or fifth time this paper has been brought up in this forum, I think.
