I just tried out the new #freecad 0.18 and I really like it. So much polish and UI improvements added compared to 0.17. Amazing job @FreeCAD

@przemof

I'm getting your new videos on Mastodon now! Maybe it didn't work with the other videos because they were already published when you added the tag. Thanks! And I can even comment from Mastodon directly to your Peertube video.

Don't forget to follow the tag (you can "pin" it to your mastodon page), as many FreeCAD community members are posting quite interesting things there!

Read over the forum, from two days ago (HT: kkremitzki):

FreeCAD 0.18~pre1 has just hit the NEW queue: ftp-master.debian.org/new.html

This ensures that FreeCAD 0.18 will be in Debian 10 even if the 0.18 release happens after the Debian 10 release.

Although I hope we do not have to wait this long for 0.18 to be released!

I've written an article about how to view #IFC #BIM files on #Linux, starting with tools with #FreeCAD but also talking about other IFC libraries.

If you work in the AEC industry, please support IFC development. The industry is stuck with proprietary tools developed by monopolies, and needs more #opensource and international standards.

Two small but nice additions to source code over the past weekend: 1) new dimetric and trimetric views; accordingly the existing "Axonometric" view was renamed isometric, because that's what it was. All three view modes are grouped under the View --> Standard views --> Axonometric menu
2) Setting the default view orientation for new document (Preferences/Display). I've always felt that default top view (XY) is not logical for a 3D program...
