Anyone willing to collaborate on writing guides for users coming from other CAD/CAM solutions to FreeCAD?

Have some feature requests, feedback, cool stuff to share, or want to know where FreeCAD is going? This is the place.

Nice. That gives me a few more ideas for videos that I can work on after I finish the Corsair up. I can provide some screenshots of the SolidWorks ribbon that highlight the commands and where to find the equivalent in FreeCAD
Fantastic idea! Also your videos are awesome. Some of the highest quality I've seen.

Off topic, some feedback, what would be super helpful is if you have some program running similar to @microelly2 that shows mouse clicks and keyboard strokes. This would also help folks that are more visual then auditory. You can see the app running in his latest vid: https://youtu.be/s0edyPLpnXo
