Is that FC for real?
Yes, this company was already mentioned in a previous post. They got a ton of investment to develop these reactors. But as mentioned, I don't think they use FreeCAD for most of the hard work; they use it more like a viewer or to make some prototypes. The design and advanced simulations are probably done in another software.

10 Free 3D modeling software programs

Published on July 21, 2020

FreeCAD

Developed by Jürgen Riegel, Werner Mayer and Yorik van Havre, FreeCAD is one of the best known 3D modeling software for having advanced functionalities, being open source and free. The program is compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac, and supports a large number of formats such as STEP, IGES, STL, SVG, DEX, OBJ, IFC and DAE. For the creation of 3D models, you must start with a 2D sketch that will then take the subsequent shape of the three-dimensional idea. The interface is easy to use and allows you to define different orientations of the lines, such as angles, and then modify their size. The 3D models can also be desinged through a process called “filling”. Currently, FreeCAD has over 25,000 members in its community, making it one of the most popular options among 3D modeling software programs.
I'm offended by being 4th in the list, after some "BlocksCAD" (for Legos) and some Microsoft product. It should be at the top, right next to Blender.

There you go, haters, the impartial website says that the interface is easy to use so we are on a good track.

With the interesting info on Tokamak wondering if there should be citing information on FreeCAD's home page at least?

a) It would be good to get recognition in any Scientific papers where they have used FreeCAD
b) Without citing information I think we are missing an opportunity

For my workbench I have a record on https://zenodo.org/record/3950389#.XyMh1i2ZNBw, still hoping for a first citation :-)

Good point, gmsh for example provides a citation on their homepage if you end up using it in your research: http://gmsh.info/
Like my FreeCAD work? I'd appreciate any level of support via Patreon, Liberapay, or PayPal! Read more about what I do at my blog.

What this means is that the big guys, Werner, Yorik, Jürgen, maybe somebody else, should get together and write a small paper of two pages or so, that we can publish in an open source journal and then we can cite.

Actually the world is more electronically and does not need a paper for a citation. The rules for technical citations are defined in ISO 690. The section 5.1 describes how to cite computer programs. See here: http://paedpsych.jk.uni-linz.ac.at/inte ... SO690.html
