I want to make a little design challenge. The goal is to create a backpack for carrying an ultralight paraglider (~2kg) + equipment. I would like to involve the community in the design procedure, as the community-knowledge is one of the main strengths of FreeCAD. Also I have to admit that I do not have much knowledge about curves and surface workbenches (which I think will play a big part for this project to succeed)
I already did one prototype, which mainly was about testing the mesh-unwrapping features . This prototype is for sure not very well designed (using part, and part-design, draft). I guess the curves and surface workbench will give much more advanced possibilities.
As we use a 3d modeler for this task, I would like to integrate design and functionality as much as possible. For example normally the straps of the backpack are simple attached and more like a 2d part. My idea was to make the connection between straps and pack via a 3d design. Also other ideas how to integrate design and functionality as much as possible are welcome.
For sure your ideas will be honored. If we manage to get this project done, we will contribute back via donations to FreeCAD. Also I think it's a way to improve/test workbenches and tools.
So keep the ideas coming

edit.: one limitation for the project is that everything has to work with python3, so maybe this is also a nice task to get workbenches, tools ready for python3...
