FreeCAD Tutorial for Beginners

Freecad can confuse and most CAD tutorials can confuse, so at the request of my YouTube audience, I made a simple step by step tutorial, with the emphasis on learning by doing (see the tutorial video HERE).

The video creates a phone stand that can be 3D printed at the end of the tutorial, but even if that isn't your thing, following along you'll pick up on FreeCADs way of doing things and quickly begin to acquire the CAD skills you require to tackle your chosen projects. Deliberately there's nothing demanding or technical here... it's just a step by step build, giving you the confidence to use the tools you need and be able to ignore the many distractions you don't.

FreeCAD is completely free, an open source package designed to be every bit as versatile as those sold by the big companies. However, it can be a little confusing to get to grips with. My tutorial ignores all the techobabble and gets straight on with using the package.

To date, I've been thrilled by the feedback I've received.
