Sandwalker (inspired by kinetic structure created by artist Theo Jansen) modeled by Zolko (Aseembly4 Workbench dev) using the Expression engine. More details in the forum post:

coming down the pipeline: A new reader! Thanks to 'ageeye'/'gift' there is a big cleanup happening in FreeCAD's DXF reading (import only ATM) portion of the code. Our are awesome!

The process of extruding the pattern on the walls is in full swing.
Let's see what comes out of the printer:)

Totally love it when a design idea works out. Case in point, a bunting mount for the bike trailer (Burley Flatbed). Got the idea, whipped it up in #FreeCAD Linkstage, printed, fitted, works. And the tube for the bunting rod makes a very satisfying plop when the rod is removed.

@FreeCAD It's finished, PartDesign, Fasteners & FCGear WB were used. The model will be available in the FreeCAD-library.
I made a short video showing the parts:

FreeCAD 0.20 release now supports section cutaways There have been quite few enhancements made in this release. FreeCAD is quite a comprehensive application, and some suggest if it is a bit daunting, it is also worth looking at Solvespace, which is also […]

Testing #FreeCAD 0.20
First model with this version, I used the PartDesign, Gear and Fasteners WB. It took me almost 2 days making this.
I have 2 of these motors, a self-balancing 2 wheels robot maybe?

📢 Official release (v0.20) is rescheduled for Monday June 13th. Technically the release will officially be tagged the night before but build packages will be built overnight + available the next day.

Here's the announcement:

Almost there!

just read the release notes of #freecad version 0.20, lots of really cool new features and improvements. And for quite a few things that have been bugging me in the past, as well.
Awesome! Looking forward to it!

@FreeCAD #freecad version 0.20 is going to be an incredible release! We're documenting all the great improvements and new features here: Go ahead and have a look! And if any question comes up -> post at the #freecad forum:

So some folks are letting us know that highlighting what isn't in the next release (as opposed to what is) misrepresents/overshadows the incredible amount of time+effort that has been dedicated to this upcoming v0.20. We hope that comes across + helping us spread the word helps!

📢 Official release (v0.20) is this upcoming Friday! Now's the time to help us document + translate.

Remember that toponaming is NOT addressed in this release. The plan is to apply fixes in v0.21 release cycle. Any complaints will be relegated to /dev/null 😈

I adapted version 0.20 of #FreeCAD to #DragonFlyBSD instead of watching the TNG. That was hell and I'm not even going to solve this qtwebengine fuss because I suspect what a bucket of worms will open up right away, so I'll live without READMEs :)

So far, it looks good.

📢 We'd 🫀 to invite the community to help us modernize any older on the page. This is a way to 'pay it forward' + help usher in the next wave of users being introduced to FC (when we release v0.20) to have the most up-to-date workflow.

🤔 Not sure if other projects leveraging @qtproject
's localization software (lupdate) have had problems, but we've had our fair share. Hopefully this commit will make lives easier 🤞

I kind of didn't expect my modeling skills in #FreeCAD to recover so quickly:)

The hook is ready, but the shitty filament won't be delivered until next week. So, let's watch TNG and fly in the Outer Wilds😜
