tutorials for Beginners- updated versions?

Postby Rose_blue » Fri Aug 16, 2019 10:30 pm

hi,

I am very new to using FreeCAD and wanted to teach myself though (video)tutorials but most are for older versions, tried following a very clear one that was using 0.14 and came across some differences that I couldn't solve. any recommendations on tutorials or ebooks that are for 0.18 ? or older versions that do not have major differences ?

Harry has made a few videos aimed at beginners, I think.

See Tutorials and Video tutorials.

FreeCAD went through a major update from 0.16 to 0.17, particularly in the PartDesign Workbench. So make sure the tutorials you follow target 0.17 and above.
