Woodworking Designs with FreeCAD

Postby Kunda1 » Wed Jul 03, 2019 12:46 am

Found this tutorial and haven't gone through it.
It utilizes: Part, Spreadsheet, A2plus, some macros, TechDraw, and Povray

The author summarizes with:
Desining for woodworking with FreeCAD is not ideal. The assembly of the parts is cumbersome and it’s not convenient to distribute the parts among several files. The cutlist functionality is working with the hacks described above but it’s a bit tricky to use.

But for the assembly as for the rendering: The great advantage of an open source solution is that one can modify everything and add new features. Maybe you also give FreeCAD a try and let us know what you think about it.

Very nice to see somebody it is designing furniture using FreeCAD. Hopefully will be additional tools in this field.
