SourceForge provides a very helpfull tool to keep record of bugs, feature request, patches, and support request when developing a software: The Tracker.

Where to find?

The FreeCAD project has its own tracker summary page. There you find the overview on the individual sections of the tracker.

When to use?

The FreeCAD Bug Tracker


If you think you might have found a bug, go to the Bugs Section of the tracker and choose "any" for status to see all bug request ever filed. The keyword search allows you to find bug tracker entries for a similiar issue. If you can not find an older entry about your problem, you should file a new entry on the same page.

Feature Requests

If you are missing a feature in FreeCAD that you think of as beeing absolutely necessary to become the worlds best CAD-Software, you might find the Feature Request section helpfull.

Support Requests

If you don't get around compiling FreeCAD and the Compile On Windows or Compile On Unix section does not give you a hint, or you try to port it to a new environment or are programming new modules or extensions for FreeCAD and need some assistance then the Support Requests section is the place you might want to go to.

New Patches

In case you have programmed a bug fix, an extension or something else that can be of public use in FreeCAD, create a patch using Subversion and file it in the patches section.
