Crea un documento vacío nuevo. FreeCAD también puede ser configurado para crear automáticamente un documento vacío nuevo al inicio, seleccionando la configuración apropiada en Editar -> Preferencias -> General -> Pestaña del Documento.

The Std New command creates a new empty document and makes it the active document.


  1. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Std New.svg Std New button.
    • Select the File → Std New.svg New option from the menu.
    • Use the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+N.


  • FreeCAD will create a new document at start up if Tools → Edit parameters... → BaseApp → Preferences → Document → CreateNewDoc is set to true. This setting can also be changed in the Preferences Editor.
  • Some document properties: author names, company name and license information, can be preset in the Preferences Editor.


Most properties can also be changed in the dialog box of the Std ProjectInfo command.

  • DatosComment: Any comment that may apply.
  • DatosCompany: Company name. Can be preset.
  • DatosCreated By: Author name. Can be preset.
  • DatosCreation Date: Automatic date stamp. Not editable.
  • DatosFile Name: The full path of the file. Blank if the document has not been saved. Not editable.
  • DatosId: Not implemented yet.
  • DatosLabel: The name that will appear in the Tree view. By default the name of the document.
  • DatosLast Modified By: Author name. Can be preset.
  • DatosLast Modified Date: Automatic date stamp. Not editable.
  • DatosLicense: License type. Can be preset.
  • DatosLicense URL: License URL. Can be preset.
  • DatosShow Hidden: If true, items that have been hidden in the Tree view will be displayed anyway. Hiding items in the tree can be useful when working on larger models.
  • DatosTip: Not implemented yet.
  • DatosTip Name: Not implemented yet.
  • DatosTransient Dir: The transient directory used for recovery data. Not editable.

To create a new document use the newDocument([name], [hidden=False]) method of the FreeCAD application. The document name must be unique, which is checked automatically. If no name is supplied, the document will be named "Untitled". If hidden=True is used, the new document won't be displayed in the GUI and no tab will appear for it.

# The folder and filename we will use:
fld = 'D:/testfiles/'
fnm = fld + 'test.FCStd'

# Make sure fld exists:
Path(fld).mkdir(parents=True, exist_ok=True)

doc = FreeCAD.newDocument()
