FreeCAD – What is FreeCAD?

FreeCAD is a parametric 3D modeler. Parametric modeling allows you to easily modify your design by going back into your model history and changing its parameters. FreeCAD is open source (LGPL license) and completely modular, allowing for very advanced extension and customization.

FreeCAD is multiplatfom, and reads and writes many open file formats such as STEP, IGES, STL and others.

Smoothie-3D Makes 3D Modeling Run Smoothly for Free

One aspect that makes 3D printing a tough byte to swallow for some is the requirement of CAD modeling skills. That, incidentally, is one of the reasons why the 3Doodler is so successful, as using the 3Doodler does not require any. To make 3D modeling easier to digest, a duo of French developers created Smoothie-3D, a free online software that, among other things, lets you easily extrapolate 3D models and textures from background 2D photos.

Acquisitions Push Facebook-Owned Oculus to 3D Printing’s Edge

Yesterday, according to The Verge, Oculus VR announced the acquisition of two companies and the addition of a new team member that indicate the company’s expansion into 3D modeling technology. Not to produce further 3D printing hype, but the Virtual Computing (Andrew Wheeler/Autodesk’s term) space is continuing to collide with our own field of 3DP and I do believe that it’s only a matter of time before we’ll be covering companies like Oculus, Google, Samsung, and Apple on a regular basis. As preliminary as this may be to mention on 3DPI: Oculus VR has purchased 3D modeling and movement-tracking firm 13th Lab and hand-tracking start-up Nimble VR.
