FreeCAD overview

FreeCAD software for Mac is an easy-to-use and highly customizable parametric 3D modeler for CAx, CAE, CAD, MCAD, and PLM created primarily to design real-life objects of any size. Its extensive toolset can be extremely helpful for mechanical engineering experts, architects, and product designers.

Features:
  • FreedCAD allows you to modify your design more easily by stepping back into your model history and changing the needed parameters.
  • FreeCAD for Mac provides access from a built-in Python interpreter, macros or external scripts to different components of this 3D modeler, including geometry creation and transformation, the scenegraph, or even FreeCAD's user interface.
  • It has an OpenCasCade-based geometry kernel that allows running complicated 3D operations on complex types of forms and maintains natively concepts, such as brep, nurbs, boolean operations, or fillets.
  • FreeCAD program for Mac includes a drawing sheets module that generates 2D schematics of the 3D models. It allows you to import and export files in different formats.
  • Multiple FreeCAD reviews prove that this tool is easy to use. It allows you to automatize it with scripts, create custom modules, and embed FreeCAD into your own application.

Version: 0.19.3
According to the original web page, it requires at least 10.12 operating system for several versions. I have version 0.18-16146 installed and although the program opens, the window does not show any controls. So it doesn't seem to be compatible either. And since my time is money, I'm not going to spend another minute with him. Nor have I used it in the years that I have it installed, I have other much better options and they don't cause me so many problems to install a working version. At a minimum, they could indicate on their website the latest versions compatible with each operating system. But as always, the Apple norm indicates that the user must be torpedoed and forced, yes or yes, to always update to the latest versions.

I had to create a small spare parts sketch with exact dimentions. I've tried to use Autocad,Blender, Chetaa 3D.. but the easiest for understanding finally was FreeCad.

Does work under 10.6 if Python 2.7 has been installed.
