  • Hi, I have just bought the Elektor version of Kicad like a Pro, in the start of the book there is a good reference to using Open Source software. So I wonder if your planning a book or course for FreeCad? I have used FreeCad at a basic level and it perfoms well.

    It would be good to know why you chose Fusion 360 instead of FreeCad and if it is better to invest time learning 360 instead?


    • Hi Michael, great question, thank you.

      With all the software and hardware that I use, fitness for purpose is my first priority.

      Freedom is a close second.

      Open source ticks the freedom box, and in Kicad I also had fitness for purpose.

      In relation to 3D design software, I don’t have in-depth knowledge. Vladimir, who is the instructor of Designing for 3D Printing with Fusion 360, has much more experience and knowledge in this topic, so I trust his opinion. For all the projects I can think of, Fusion 360 definitely fits the purpose, and its licensing terms are acceptable. I will ask Vladimir your question and report back (most likely through a blog post).

      At first glance, FreeCAD looks excellent. I will spent a bit of time with it to learn how it works. Thank you for letting me know about it.
