The CurvedShapes External Workbench Icon


Curved Shapes is a FreeCAD external workbench that creates 3D shapes from 2D curves.


Recommended installation is through the FreeCAD AddonManager.svg Addon Manager via the Tools → Addon Manager

Note: for manual installation see Addon Manager#Manual_installation


  • CurvedShapes CurvedArray.svg CurvedArray: Creates an array and resizes the items in the bounds of one or more hull curves.
  • CurvedShapes CurvedSegment.svg CurvedSegment: Interpolates between two 2D curves. The interpolated curves can be resized in the bounds of some hullcurves.
  • CurvedShapes InterpolatedMiddle.svg InterpolatedMiddle: Interpolates a 2D shape into the middle between two 2D curves. The base shapes can be connected to a shape with a sharp corner.
  • CurvedShapes SurfaceCut.svg SurfaceCut: Cuts a surface to get the outline curve or a face. This tool is similar to Part CrossSections.svg Cross-Sections in the Workbench Part.svg Part workbench, but it is fully parametric and has an option to reduce the complexity of the output curve. It tries to remove overlapping edges.
