This video is all about How to learn FreeCAD through the realthunder branch for 3D printing. This video is the first in a short series of videos to learn free CAD the way I wish I could of learn it. We will be covering a lot of quality of life settings that I wish I knew in the start and I’ll show you the basics from the user interface, sketching, constraints, extruding and holes. Whether you’re a complete beginner or switching from another software package, I really do hope you find this video useful.
