Forged In FreeCAD: 4Axis for CNC Ring Engraving
We’ve featured a few projects under the “Forged In FreeCAD” title but what caught our eye with this one is that FreeCAD was used to not only create an innovative solution, but also was used to then help operate the created machine.

Project creator Jordan Poles had a burgeoning interest in lathes and wanted to make an engraved brass ring. T

FreeCAD 1.0 Logo Refresh Contest
With FreeCAD 1.0 on the horizon, it's time to refresh the official FreeCAD logo. At the request of the project maintainers, the intent here is to follow a similar approach to corporate logos and evolve/iterate the current FreeCAD symbol instead of completely reinventing the symbology of it.

Voting details will be reiterated upon start of a community poll, but a ‘ranked

Tutorial, Create Custom TechDraw Templates.
The Technical Drawing or TechDraw workbench is an integral part of FreeCAD allowing us to create beautiful technical drawings of our parts or assemblies. In a world of CNC milling and 3D printing it’s still essential at times to be able to supply someone with a technical drawing to help plan the making of a part. A technical drawing can also be extreme
