I agree it's are pretty much unavoidable, but FUCK, building weapons is really one of the things I wish FreeCAD wouldn't be used for...

Science Advances Magazine published an article about a development of an educational kit using FreeCAD.
The article includes a link to a folder with the FreeCAD files.

Some screenshots of the files (by me):

Hello,

I'd like to share the group I created for FreeCAD in Grabcad:

https://grabcad.com/groups/freecad-help-showcase

So far the only activity there is mine, the same project posted in Users' Showcase section.

My objective there is to grab attention from potential users and also Grabcad Workbench's developers, because I'd really love if they added support for FreeCAD files there.

I believe that this topic is adequate for that.

FreeCAD seems to be commercially available on CD: https://www.mut.de/software/cad/freecad-suite.html

I wonder who buys this? At least they get a printed manual.

The fact that it runs on 32 bit windows makes me guess that it is a 0.16 version. I wonder which "extensive handbook" it contains.

Could be this is just some software named FreeCAD Suite and it isn't our FreeCAD.

One of the (translated) features is:

The Part Design Workbench provides tools for modeling complex solid components to create a single contiguous solid.

Sounds familiar. :lol:

Many other FC WBs are listed as well.
