FreeCAD 0.19 Released For Advancing Open-Source CAD Software
FreeCAD 0.19 was released this weekend as the newest major feature release for this respected open-source CAD solution / parametric 3D modeling solution.
FreeCAD 0.19 is now "essentially complete" in its migration from Python 2 to Python 3 as well as Qt4 to Qt5. FreeCAD 0.19 at the UI level brings improvements to its navigation cube, new icon theme management, a new dark stylesheet, a lot of work on dynamic properties, improved backup file handling, glTF support, a new WebGL exporter, new Arch Fence and Arch Truss tools, continued work on the FEM Workbench, the Render Workbench added support for Blender's standalone Cycles renderer, and much more.
FreeCAD 0.19 is quite an exciting and noteworthy release. Those into computer aided design can find out more about this big FreeCAD update over on the FreeCAD Wiki.
For those into FreeCAD scripting or know of other solutions, I am still very much interested in coming up with a FreeCAD performance benchmark for use with the Phoronix Test Suite and OpenBenchmarking.org. Sadly there still doesn't seem to be anything I am aware of for benchmarking FreeCAD. Please let me know if there is.
