Notes for GNU/Linux users

Most distributions carry FreeCAD in their official repositories, however, if the distribution doesn't follow a rolling release model the version they provide might be outdated. Instead you can download the AppImage above, mark it as executable and launch it without installation.

Please see the Install on Unix page for more installation options, including daily packages for Ubuntu and derivatives.

Development versions

FreeCAD's development is active.

  • For Linux users, check out the development AppImage.
  • For MacOS, Windows, and development source code, see the FreeCAD/releases page.

Additional modules and macros

The FreeCAD community provides many additional modules and macros. Since 0.17 they can be easily installed from within FreeCAD using the Addon manager AddonManager.svg.
