FreeCAD 0.18 announced


#1

FreeCAD is an unofficial friend of KiCad.
I noticed today that 0.18 has just been announced, no packages available yet.


Paging @maui for the status of the StepUp workbench on this upcoming release


#2

Works fine. I used nightlies for it since, well ever. (Like with kicad the nightly gets converted into the stable build at some point in time.)

@davidsrsb @Rene_Poschl
thank you for announcing it on KiCAD forum :smiley:
FreeCAD 0.18 is very stable and has many new and useful features, and is available also with python 3 and Qt5 flavor.
KiCAD StepUp is fully compatible with latest FreeCAD 0.18 release, both with py2, Qt4 and py3, Qt5.

Happy ECAD-MCAD Collaboration! :wink:
