You can see my work here on gitlab. There's not much too it right now, but it's definitely something!

Mods: you can feel free to delete this if it goes against the spirit of the forum. I'm hoping that by posting in the "Open Discussion" sub-forum that it should be ok.

Edit:

Here's a quick demo of the current functionality - admittedly not that much, but I'm pretty excited!

Thanks! I did put a bit of thought into the name, "MyCAD " seems mostly appropriate as it is "my" CAD (lol), but also I hope to design it in such a way that anybody (dvelopper and user alike) can tailor and tune it to be exactly what they want/need.

Great! Always nice to see forks, alternatives, other ideas, and all the things that make the FOSS world alive. Keep going! (and keep us informed! ;) )

Thanks for the kind words!

I had considered adding my demo gif to my original post but was worried it might be seen too much like self promotion.

since the reception seems to be warm though I will post it as soon as i'm back at my computer!
