FreeCAD 0.18.3 Revision 16131

If you want to create 2D and 3D drawings, this application has been specifically designed for you. FreeCAD can easily handle the 3D CAD, MCAD, CAx, CAE and PLM projects.

It comes with a bunch of tools to support all the functionality of the 2D and 3D drawings. All these tools are neatly arranged to make it easy for beginners and experts to find the right tool and get the desired benefit.

FreeCAD can import files from many formats. These include DXF, BRP, DAT, SVG, MED, IGES, BMP, JPG, IFC, OCA, ASC, SVG, and WRL formats. You can use any of the files in these formats to make changes or include the 2D and 3Ddrawings.

Some of the 2D drawing options that the FreeCAD provides include drawing the circles, wires, polygons, arcs, and points. Additionally, you can move, copy, readjust, clone, and rotate all these objects.  You can even delete the points from the shapes; create rectangular or polar shapes through the points with great ease.

Similarly, 3D objects can also have a variety of options like the creation of cone, cylinder, sphere, and box. The boolean operations support the modification of any of these shapes. Additionally, fusing two objects is also amongst the possibility of modifying the 3D shapes.

Apart from these specific features, the other features of this applicationinclude the possibility of using built-in python consoles, recording macros, and using multiple documents at a particular time for either creation or editing. Additionally, the creation of triangle meshes and setting up the simulation environment is also possible through Freecad. All these files can be exported in the SVG file format.

FreeCAD allows you to create 2D and 3D objects with some other features including scripts.
