Does anyone have experience with FreeCad? I would love to see a comparison of it to Fusion. I have used Sketchup Make and can’t say that I have any serious issues with it other than my own limitations. I really don’t use it often enough to stay proficient. My only issue is that because I use Linux as my operating system, I must run Sketchup under Windows 7 within a virtual machine. This works just fine, but does not allow me to use the latest version. FreeCad is free open source software and works on Windows, Mac, and Linux or Unix. I have run it a couple of times and read some of the documentation. It seems very very different than Sketchup, but is parametric like Fuision (not totally sure what that means). I’m not real sure I want to take the time to learn either one.
