Unfortunately writing code has to be the primary focus of a GSoC project, documentation can only be secondary.
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.

highest priority should be getting documentation written.
Documentation is very important, of course. But if you accept this forum as part of the documentation - and it's really a highlight, that each user gets his individual documentation - then FreeCAD's documentation is just excellent.

I think though, highest priority should be getting documentation written.
It is rather a subject of "season of docs" : https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/

Actually, there is a thread for that: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?p=293510

Hi, I would like to have in Part-Design:

1.
The feature "Make draft on a face" can handle faces that are based on a spline.
2.
New features: Geometry-Mirror and Geometry-Pattern. If I insert these features at the end of a feature tree all the geometry before in the same body will be mirrored / patterned.
3.
Add hide and suppress feature to the context menu.

Thanks.

+1. Instead of patterning individual features just pattern the whole final state.

Improve 3D offset. Or build a new feature.
3D offset is a key feature for surface design.
It crash too much and not be able to work with a combined surface.

  • Upvote for a complete powerful user-friendly measuring tool :)
  • Implement 2D offset tool in sketcher issue #3708 (don't know if @abdullah started something)
  • Makes PartDesign Pad/Pocket options "Up to first", "Up to face" works with all type of faces, including curved ones (but maybe this an OCC thing)
  • Implement Assimp importer & exporter for FreeCAD ? Bind to Assimp ?

- research the possibilities to use MBSE/SysML with FreeCAD and do some basic implementation of it (for example with Papyrus) https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=38307

- research the possibilities to use Modelica with FreeCAD and do some basic implementation of it (for example with OpenModelica, hopefully version 2.0 will also be released by the time of gsoc2020) https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=32556

- research the possibilities to use EnergyPlus with FreeCAD and do some basic implementation of it (for example with OpenStudio) https://github.com/NREL/EnergyPlus, https://github.com/NREL/OpenStudio

- research the possibilities to use AI/ML with FreeCAD and do some basic implementation of it (for example with TensorFlow, PyTorch or FluxML)
