FreeCAD: Solid Modeling with the Power of Python

Brad Collette, Daniel Falck

strong Modeling with the facility of Python

* choked with basic and fascinating examples of python coding for the CAD world.
* comprehend FreeCAD's method of modeling and notice how Python places extraordinary energy within the arms of users.
* Dive into FreeCAD and its underlying scripting language.

In Detail

FreeCAD is a basic goal platform for CAD improvement. it may be prolonged to exploit various workbenches to resolve varied difficulties. special squarely on the engineering neighborhood, FreeCAD is an open resource layout software outfitted to be prolonged. Python, the robust scripting language, is woven deeply into FreeCAD's DNA and provides clients extraordinary energy to automate and invent.

"FreeCAD [How-to]" is a lean, speedy journey of FreeCAD's significant workbenches and layout philosophy. The reader gets a hands-on advent to numerous modeling ideas and find out how Python makes macro automation and layout possible.

FreeCAD permits clients to layout in quite a few methods; from drawing second designs as strains and circles to combining primitive solids into advanced 3D shapes. gadgets can also be created or changed by way of code you write in Python. FreeCAD even permits strength clients to increase the applying itself with new dialogs, panels, and scripts. This e-book won't basically help you start utilizing FreeCAD in a conventional GUI mode, yet will train you ways to harness its robust scripting language for extra power.
