FreeCAD 0.18 is nearing release

9 months after the 0.17 release, the project is on track to release 0.18 by the end of 2018, or in January. While the changes are not as massive as in 0.17, it provides a lot of improvements across many areas (FEM, the Path CAM module, Sketcher, TechDraw and others). Overall almost 2,000 commits have been added.

Word of advice to FreeCAD users on Ubuntu who also have the freecad-community PPA in their software sources: do *not* update the python-pivy package! It will *break* your FreeCAD installs, even ones you compiled yourself.

K, I've been listening to podcasts all week making their year end predictions for next year. I want to here yours and share mine.

1) Microsoft will purchase Canonical in an effort to upstage IBM buying RedHat.

2) When Microsoft buys Canonical they will rename Ubuntu and give Mark Shuttleworth a seat on the board.

3) Unfortunately, the Librem5 will be delayed again. (I fervently hope I'm wrong on this one.)

I got this book from my wife for Christmas and I love it.

My youngest son enjoying the bluetooth amplifier I made for him. The battery life is impressive. I still need to make one adjustment to the console on the back and provide more space for the wires and connectors.

Learned something today about tangled filament on the spool. Don't you hust hate it when a print comes out like this. I always thought this was due to cross-winding when the filament was initially spooled. I was wrong. It's because incorrect storage and use of the filament spool.

Hi everyone, I'm Tushar and I've been running Windows for as long as I can remember. I do want to explore more about coding, as I "specialize" in more mechanical aspects of technology, and want to expand my horizons. I have just recently joined Mastodon, so i'm not sure exactly how this works.
