Detailing & annotating with OpeningDesign, @FreeCAD, #Blender, #BlenderBIM, #osarch #FreeCAD #openbim. Getting a really efficient and smooth workflow there...

The critical parts are completed.
Using the strut design from last year's version, they showed exceptional rigidity and resistance to attempts to damage the geometry of the vibrators.

Here's the latest, updated model (including all of the current parts) of the workstation console prototype. Cranked up the transparency to show all the geometry.

This weekend I tried @FreeCAD for a first time. It worked really well, but I still have a lot to learn.

Doing 2D CAD (and annotating BIM views) in #FreeCAD / @FreeCAD becoming increasingly fast, powerful and comfortable. More about this soon! Project with OpeningDesign

@gbrnt wait, is that ? The default blue background is a telltale.

Here's a first draft of the mouthpiece half - this should work ok. The other half with the sensor should be quite simple and can wait until tomorrow.

@FreeCAD not very exciting ... but been testing LibreDWG support for opening some 2D DWG files.

Working on a semi-technical add-on for my workstation console. Building a "card cage" for 3 plywood "cards", each of which is custom-designed to hold a part of the rig's cable plant... power supply for the monitor, USB hub, strain relief+egress.

The cards will slide in and out of the cage like removable disks. Decide on different gear down the road... just swap out the component mounts.

@FreeCAD This is great news! Maybe it's brain damage but I've come to see the practice of deliberately structuring dependencies in a model to work around this issue as good and hygienic. On the other hand, fewer new users will be turned off after being enraged at the inability to modify a sketch deep in the model without blowing it up and having to start over from scratch.

One of my favorite parts of building a new piece with #freecad is working in the Path workbench to build all of the toolpaths to create the parts on the CNC machine.

Before FreeCAD, I worked with Fusion360. For the work I'm doing, I don't miss Fusion at all!

@FreeCAD I worked on a wooden trike concept, but never found the time to finish it or build a prototype.

I also made plans for a shack for children, which I built for real and they like it a lot :-)

In both projects, FreeCAD helped me visualize, and identify mistakes before building.

Great tool, even if not fully stable yet.
