FreeCAD 0.16 Differences between Extrude Offset and Thickness

In this tutorial I discuss some of the differences between the Extrude, Offset and Thickness, how they don't always give you the expected results and how to get around some of their issues. As of May, 2017 Phelps 3D has gone out of business. I am now doing just sales of my designs and eBooks through Thank you.

FreeCAD Tutorial - Using Groups for better Workflow

When your project starts growing and you have many objects that are becoming difficult to manage is time to consider using groups. It also adds a "layer" like management piece to FreeCAD. I ramble a bit in the first minute and a half so feel free to skip ahead to about 1:30 In this video I use a Stick frame model of a backyard shed to show how groups can help make managing all the bits and pieces quite a bit easier. I demonstrate how to use draft move with group selection. You can use all the draft functions with a group selection.

Use the Open Source, free cad software FreeCAD to create this 3d ribbon shape.

Using the Draft Workbench Users can create "nurbs" like surfaces. I used the draft workbench, the Face Tool and the Part Workbench to extrude to basic shape.

This particular object is not "nurbs" and there are advanced workbenchs that better handle difficult surfaces. But using just draft you can create some basic surfaces.

I had some fun creating this 3d ribbon in FreeCAD to help myself get more aquainted with the Draft workbench.

Getting familiar with the draft workbench can help to create 3d shapes that might otherwise be hard to achieve.
