New Book: FreeCAD for Makers

In Sep­tem­ber 2022 the mak­ers of Hack­space Mag­a­zine pub­lished a new book by Jo Hinch­liffe (with a fore­word by FreeCAD core devel­op­er Yorik van Havre), FreeCAD for Mak­ers, pre­sent­ing an intro­duc­tion and ped­a­gog­i­cal approach to learn­ing FreeCAD. It’s avail­able as a free PDF down­load at on their web­site.

The book fea­tures chap­ters not only on using the core of FreeCAD, but also fea­tur­ing many of the incred­i­ble Addons that 3rd-par­ty devel­op­ers have cre­at­ed, rang­ing from the Sheet Met­al work­bench for work­ing with designs bent from sheet met­al, to using Dodo for frames and pipes, and many more.
