How to convert STL to STEP using FreeCAD

74 22 Beginner
This tutorial covers how to convert an STL to a STEP using FreeCAD. Note: Since STLs are meshes, the resulting model won't be as precise as parts originally made as solids. FreeCAD can export: - Step - Iges - Scad - Dxf - Dwg - Obj - Pdf And many others…

FreeCAD TechDraw Workbench

7 2 Beginner
In this video I show and try to explain how to use several tools of TechDraw Workbench. If you want to create 2D views with dimensions and show details with information then this video is for you. Already I apologize for my English, but comments from other videos asked to enter voice in videos so I'm trying. If you have any questions, I can try to clarify as soon as I can.

Mechanical stress simulation (FreeCAD 0.19 • FEM Workbench )

2 0 Intermediate
This tutorial give an overview of FEM Workbench on FreeCAD 0.19 which allows mechanical analysis by the finite element method. We will look at the steps to follow to applies a force of given value [N] to selected target geometry. Then perform a finite element analysis without going into details of the calculations.

FreeCAD Basic Exercise #1

10 2 Beginner
The objective of this tutorial will be to discover the workflow for the parametric design of a 3D object with Part Design and Sketcher. For this we will model a basic part involving different types of functions.

FreeCAD Basic Exercise #2

8 3 Beginner
The objective of this tutorial will be to use the sketching tools: symmetry constraint, external geometry projection and Polyline. We will also use the Refine parameter to remove an edge.

Synchronize electronic and mechanical CAD with KiCad StepUp workbench

4 0 Intermediate
In this tutorial we will make a STEP or IGES file of PCB designed with KiCad EDA. Then PCB will be operable with CAD software. For that we will see how to associate KiCad footprints to proper 3D file (step 1 to 5) and then use KiCad StepUp workbench to load PCB and export it to desired format (step 6 to 9). To follow it, you must have at your disposal complete electronics board project on KiCad.

This tutorial introduces the Construction Mode for constraining sketch geometry and also new features: Polygon, Equal and Fillet (in Sketcher) then Thickness and Polar Pattern (in Part Design).

Modelling welds with FreeCAD 0.19

3 0 Beginner
This tutorial explain how to model welds with FreeCAD, version 0.19. For that we will use epsiloidal primitive sequences placed on the weld seams. Principle is described in Step 1 and then other steps describe practical cases. We will mainly use Part and Draft workbenches and functions Primitives, Epsiloid and Path Array.
