Good day! Last night, I downloaded FreeCAD, but I don't know and I don't have any idea how to use it. All I do is click icons randomly. Can someone here in this forum help me or teach me the basics to make a puzzle in FreeCAD? Thanks! :)

I saw that there are some FreeCAD tutorials available on Youtube.
I haven't checked the quality on these, But they should atleast be good enough to get a basic understanding of the interface.

I have it running here on Linux, honestly.. find tutorials on the net like youtube. There is also a wiki somewhere that explains the very basics. I still have to do that, going to.. when I have some free time on my hands *grin*

That'd be great if it was capable of making good puzzles like Solidworks. Cross-platormness rules!

It should be. The images on the site would indicate that it could be possible.

Of course all is limited to the user's capacity. One cannot expect it to draw a cube just cause one says so *giggle*
