FreeCAD workshop

June 2, 2012

Earlier this week I attended a FreeCAD workshop at The Edge.

The eventual goal is to know enough to design simple things for 3D printing.

The workshop was at a beginners level, and I pretty quickly finished the main goal, but I still had plenty of problems with the FreeCAD GUI. I like the main thrust of the program, but I was constantly plagued by accidentally switching on UI modes and features, but not knowing how to use them, or turn them off. Other irritants included the attributes tree collapsing every single time I switched objects.

For really basic stuff, I should be fine.
