Using FreeCAD for a 3D printing project

Here's a short screencast showing how to create a cylinder with a grid of holes in it.

I'm using the following features in FreeCAD:

  • Part View
    • Create and place cylinders
    • Shape actions on shapes (difference in this case)
    • Fillet (you also have chamfer)
  • Draft View

Open Source is like fresh air: it just feels better.

I've been using Linux as my main (and only home) operating system since 2007.

I'm an avid user of Inkscape, GIMP, LibreOffice and FreeCAD. I try to search for open source tools in my professional life too.
Websites are mainly made in Joomla for me. I love tweaking the code and trying to fiddle things together.

Other things I enjoy: Open Hardware (Arduino, Raspberry Pi), Hackerspaces, Rambling about politics
