FreeCAD Very Basic Course for total novices
What you’ll learn
You will learn the basic elements of the FreeCAD interface.
You will learn the basic tools for creating 3D models.
You will learn the basic geometries and constraints in a sketch.
You will prepare your first 3D model in FreeCAD.
You do not need to have experience in 3D modeling.
In this beginner’s course, you will learn the basic concepts and tools of FreeCAD, the popular open source 3D modeling software. Through a series of tutorials, you will develop the skills necessary to start designing and creating your own 3D models.One approach to creating 3D models is to create 3D models from 2D sketches.We create a 2D sketch and add 3D solid features based on that sketch.We’ll start with an overview of geometry creation and editing tools. We will discuss basic constraints, which are the relationships between sketch geometries. Constraints make it possible to precisely specify the shape and dimensions of geometry. Next, we’ll go over the basic operations of creating and editing 3D solids from a sketch.By the end of this course, you will have a good foundation in FreeCAD and will be able to create simple 3D models. Whether you’re creating models for personal projects or for professional work, FreeCAD is a powerful tool that can help you express your ideas in 3D design.FreeCAD is free and open source parametric computer-aided design (CAD) 3D software. It is suitable for engineers, designers, students and hobbyists who want to create 3D models of their projects. FreeCAD can be used for hobby and commercial purposes. And to use FreeCAD, just download the installation file, install the software and you can use it. No need to provide your details. FreeCAD works offline, so you can create your own 3D models even in places with limited internet access.
