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.

Also visit video tutorials and offsite tutorials for tutorials hosted on external sites. A useful source of video tutorials is YouTube.

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.

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

Import and Export

Rendering

Robot workbench

Plotting

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.

Drawings

Development of the Drawing Workbench stopped in FreeCAD 0.16. Consider using the TechDraw Workbench instead.

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.
