Training "Basics of FreeCAD 3D drawing"
Do you cut with a laser or plasma, use a CNC machine or a 3D printer and want to learn how to draw 3D drawings?
This FreeCAD 3D drafting tutorial is for you. I guarantee that after this introductory course, you will gain a solid foundation in drafting, be able to draw 2D and 3D drawings, generate G-code for CNC machines, and create 3D realistic product visualizations.
Distance learning will start on 11/21/2023 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 19:00. via ZOOM. The duration of one lesson is 1 hour. 30 min. End of the course 2023-12-14 (8 lessons).
- Participants will be given access to the training class on the Internet, where you will always find the drawings drawn during the lessons, links to the lectures and video recordings of the lectures. You can use this access for another 6 months. from the end of these trainings, so if you sometimes miss a lecture, you can review it later on your own;
- The possibility of paying in installments in two installments (choose the payment method by bank transfer, pay half of the amount of money and pay the remaining amount of money by the 5th lesson;
- An invoice is issued;
- After completing the training course, you will receive a Diploma confirming this.

Why choose this training course:
- These trainings are for those who have no drawing experience and for those who already have experience, but do not yet know everything and feel that they are stuck in certain situations;
- You will immediately apply the theoretical knowledge in practical tasks that we will all perform together during the training;
- You will get answers to all your questions;
- You will learn to work with many basic tool workbenches: Draft, Part, Part design, Path, Image, Arch Textute, A2Plus and more;
- You will learn the intricacies of drawing based on the strong personal experience of the teacher. This will help you to master and understand the features of 3D drawing faster;
- The training course is organized for the second year in a row, so it is even better balanced and supplemented with topics relevant to you;
- After this training course, you will easily understand other similar drawing programs: AutoDesk Fusion360, Vecric VCarve PRO, SolidWorks, etc.

Briefly about FreeCAD:
FreeCAD is a free, open source, parametric drafting program that allows you to create 2D and 3D drawings. In its features, drawing objects and controls, FreeCAD is similar to Solidworks or Fusion 360. It is a powerful tool with many workbenches adapted to perform a wide variety of functions.
- Compared to Fusion 360 or Solidworks, FreeCAD is open source, which means it's free. The open source of the application gives users more freedom and options to adapt the application to their needs or contribute to its improvement.
- FreeCAD's parametric design functionality allows you to create objects with dimensions and properties tied to specific situations. This means that you can easily change the shape or dimensions of an object, and all related elements automatically adjust. Parametric design in FreeCAD gives you more flexibility and efficiency, especially when you need to change the design or create different variations.
- FreeCAD has a number of workbenches adapted to perform a wide variety of functions. I will mention the main and commonly used ones: Part, Part Design, Draft, Arch, TechDraw, etc., which can be selected according to specific needs. Desktops provide an extended range of drawing functions that allow you to create and edit different objects and structures. In addition, the FreeCAD community is constantly developing new workbenches and tools that enrich the program's functionality.
- FreeCAD supports many popular drawing storage formats, such as: SVG, DXF, DWG, STL, STEP, G-code, etc., which are widely recognized and used by many 2D and 3D modeling applications. This makes it easy to share project files with other applications and collaborate with other designers or engineers, regardless of what application they use.
- FreeCAD can be a useful drafting tool for drafting parts for laser cutting, plasma cutting, CNC machining or 3D printing.
I am waiting for you all with great enthusiasm and desire to help you learn how to draw 3D drawings! 🛠️✨
