Synchronize electronic and mechanical CAD with KiCad StepUp workbench

6 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.

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.
