Plot_Trigonometric_Example.png|link=[[Plot Basic tutorial]]|[[Plot Basic tutorial|Basic plot]] <br/>Draw simple mathematical functions in the Plot Workbench using the underlying Python plotting libraries: define the input list (X), two output lists (Y1, Y2), plot the functions (Y1 and Y2 against X), set the grid, line styles, legends, axes labels, plot title, and save the plot.
 
Plot_MultiAxes_Example.png|link=[[Plot MultiAxes tutorial]]|[[Plot MultiAxes tutorial|Multiaxes plot]] <br/>Draw a more complicated plot in the Plot Workbench with two different input lists (X, T), and three output lists (Y1, Y2, Y3), then create two sets of axes in the same plot, and plot the pairs of lists (Y1 against X, and Y2 and Y3 against T); set the axes labels and grid, and move the legends and title.

This page presents a selection of high quality written tutorials. A complete, unsorted list of tutorials can be found in Category:Tutorials, a complete and sortable one can be found in the table below.

If you'd like to contribute with writing wiki documentation and tutorials, see the general wiki guidelines in WikiPages, and read the tutorial guidelines.

Please notice the version of FreeCAD used in the tutorial as some tutorials may use an old version of the program. Although the general modelling process may still work, some tools may have changed.

See also video tutorials.

Architecture and BIM

Modeling parts

FreeCAD provides two main workflows to modeling parts:

Please note that the PartDesign Workbench workflow was considerably changed from FreeCAD 0.17 onward; some of the tutorials haven't been updated and may refer to the 0.16 version.

The Raspberry Pi project has made simple tutorials that are easy to follow, particularly for those new to CAD systems:

Drafting and Sketching

Technical Drawings

FEM

CNC & 3D Printing

Rendering

Robot workbench

Development of the Robot Workbench is currently abandoned. Please inquire on our forum regarding any news or alternative workbenches.

Scripting

These are tutorials that are related to scripting or programming. They are geared towards more experienced users, who are already somewhat familiar with the program.

Tutorials - Comprehensive list

Here are listed all the tutorials that are not in the manual regardless of their quality. If a tutorial is listed in the Category:Tutorials and not in this table please insert it.
