I'm glad to write my first post on this forum by using a Raspberry PI3!
I would like to thanks the Freecad community and devellopers for the great job: this software is wonderfull
I'm french, sorry for my english, try to do my best.
Right now I'm using Freecad 0.18 on a RPI3B+ thanks to the Micrometer cnc 4 RPI distribution.

Sure it's not the best computer to use Freecad, sometimes unstable and crash. But it's not so slow, pretty usable for simple CAD models. Let me share my recent tests about using Freecad 0.18 on RPI3B+:
SD card class10
- launching of Freecad: 1mn
- loading new part: 3sec
- part design: creating of a cube primitive 10x10X10: 2sec, validating: 0.5sec
- part design->body->sketch->rectangle/circle/etc...->clic first corner->clic second corner: crash of Freecad repeatedly. Sketcher crash everytime, except for lines...
- gearsWB: loading of default gear (1mm module, 15theet): 2sec, transforming beta=20° and double_helix=true: 6sec. Graphic display fluidity of this gear: excelent, very fast
- Netgen meshing of previous gear: 30sec (no FEM solving, calculix path is missing)
- loading of a "big" 3D model: infinite time loading-> 1GoRAM saturation
- loading of Archdetail.fcstd exemple: 25sec, fast displaying (somtimes crash if second file is opened)
Last week I used this distribution to perform a demonstration of Freecad in the makerspace of my town. The crash of sketcher was a real problem, however people seemed me satisfayed.
