Excellent software! Install PPA first, for latest version: ppa:freecad-maintainers/freecad-stable
Get the latest version off their website.
(PLEASE UPDATE TO 0.18) -- I was a novice in CAD and no idea how to build 3d models. Freecad is more difficult than others to learn but I'm so glad I persisted at it. I went from begging my solid works friend to building simple models faster myself. Freecad is in my top three open source software ever.
Amazing CAD software!
It is difficult to get working in Mint 19.2 and when installed correctly it fails to open correctly my existing DXF drawings saved from TurboCAD. These drawing open correctly in QCAD and so indicates that FreeCAD is significantly flawed.
Version 0.17 is ready. It is implemented as an *.AppImage file. This version works fine and has no errors in this moment. Just download and install it.
I like it, perfekt to create small Things for 3D-Printing. If it doesnt start on Mint 19 use Terminal. LIBGL_DRI3_DISABLE=true freecad
FreeCAD does not open linux mint 18.3 is opening but linux mint tera 19 is not opening note: amd radeon r9 290x freecad does not open / Mash - Min18.3 yes it was working
0.16.6712/Mint19, on launch; No module named WebGui \n, Does work on Min18.3(VM)
The best there is, but unfortunately not that great.
The best free 3d cad software, if you want the latest version you must download it from the FreeCAD website
quite old. Get the ppa from their website.
Use website for latest version 0.15
useful for converting 3D data.
Too buggy on Linux to be truly useful.
I love it!!!
Good for simple tasks
Failed to install properly from Software Manager on Qiana. Had to add ppa on launchpad to upgrade and add required packages. Now I love it.
