Announcing FreeCAD Project
Jürgen Riegel 2003/08/17 17:23
Hi together,
my name is Juergen Riegel and I want today announce a OpenCasCade project, FreeCAD.

FreeCAD is an Open Source CAx RAD based on OpenCasCade, QT and Python. It features some key concepts like Macro recording, Workbenches, ability to run as a server and dynamically loadable Application extensions and its designed to be platform independent...

Although its in a early stage and not usable for users and developers (first user release plant for end 2003) I would like to get some feedback on the direction and design of FreeCAD. The GUI is nearly finished and now we (Me and my co developer Werner Mayer) starting to add the first CAD functions (Part design).

FreeCAD can be seen as a general purpos mecanical CAD system but the first audience, I think, will be developers in the CAx area which need ground work for own development.

So said enouhgt, just take a look at the FreeCAD Home page:

For questions you can reach me under:

Have fun
