 +
 
 +
<!--T:34-->
 +
These are the base workbenches bundled with every installation of FreeCAD:
 +
 
 +
<!--T:40-->
 +
* [[File:Freecad16.svg|32px]] [[Std_Base|Std Base]]. This is not really a workbench, but this category serves to collect all "standard" commands and tools of the system which can be used in all workbenches.

 +
* [[Image:Workbench_OpenSCAD.svg|24px]] The [[OpenSCAD Module|OpenSCAD Workbench]] for interoperability with OpenSCAD and repairing [[constructive solid geometry|constructive solid geometry]] (CSG) model history.
 +
* [[Image:Workbench_Part.svg|24px]] Use the [[Part Module|Part Workbench]] to design solids with [[constructive solid geometry|constructive solid geometry]] (CSG) workflow.
 +
 
 +
<!--T:27-->
 +
* [[Image:Workbench_PartDesign.svg|24px]] Use the [[PartDesign Workbench|PartDesign Workbench]] to build solids from sketches and parametric operations in what is called [[feature editing|feature editing]] workflow.
 +
* [[Image:Workbench_Path.svg|24px]] Use the [[Path_Workbench|Path Workbench]] to produce G-Code instructions. It is still in a stage of development. Only basic functions in 0.16

 +
 
 +
<!--T:28-->
 +
* [[Image:Workbench_Reverse_Engineering.svg|24px]] The [[Reverse Engineering Workbench|Reverse Engineering Workbench]] is intended to give you specific tools to convert shapes/solids/meshes into parametric FreeCAD-compatible features. It is still in development.
 +
* [[Image:Workbench_Robot.svg|24px]] Use the [[Robot_Workbench|Robot Workbench]] to study robot movements.
 +
* [[Image:Workbench_Ship.svg|24px]] The [[Ship Workbench|Ship Workbench]] FreeCAD-Ship works over Ship entities, that must be created on top of provided geometry.
 +
* [[Image:Workbench_Sketcher.svg|24px]] Use the [[Sketcher Module|Sketcher Workbench]] to work with geometry-constrained sketches.

 +
* [[Image:Workbench_Web.svg|24px]] The [[Web Workbench|Web Workbench]] provides you with a browser window instead of the 3D-View within FreeCAD.
 +
 
 +
===Macros=== <!--T:24-->
 +
 
 +
<!--T:35-->
 +
[[Macros|Macros]] are relatively small snippets of [[Python|Python]] code that perform a simple or a complex task that is not available in the base FreeCAD system.
 +
 
 +
<!--T:36-->
 +
Power users have written various [[macros|macros]] to enhance FreeCAD with more capabilities.
 +
 
 +
<!--T:32-->
 +
Since FreeCAD 0.17, many macros can be installed using the [[Std AddonMgr|Addon Manager]]. For a list of the macros refer to the [[macros recipes|macros recipes]] page. For manual installation see [[How to install macros|How to install macros]].
 +
 
 +
===External workbenches=== <!--T:23-->
 +
 
 +
<!--T:37-->
 +
When many macros or functions are developed together, and are organized in toolbars and menus, they can become a new workbench.
 +
 
 +
<!--T:38-->
 +
[[External_workbenches|External workbenches]] are collections of functions that are not part of the base FreeCAD system, usually developed by experienced users, and targeting a particular need.
 +
 
 +
<!--T:31-->
 +
Since FreeCAD 0.17, many workbenches can be installed using the [[Std AddonMgr|Addon Manager]]. For manual installation see [[How to install additional workbenches|How to install additional workbenches]].
 +
 
 +
==Reference== <!--T:12-->
 +
 
 +
<!--T:13-->
 +
* [[List of Commands|Commands Reference]]: A complete list of the available FreeCAD commands.
 +
 
 +
== Online Help == <!--T:14-->
 +
 
 +
<!--T:15-->
 +
<!-- To download the online help in FreeCAD you need to set the proper Url in the [[Preferences Editor|Preferences Editor]] of FreeCAD. Currently the right url has to point to this page. That means you need to set it to:

The online help system is currently in rework. It will generate a CHM file out of the Wiki. This CHM file will be distributed with the binary packages of FreeCAD.
+
<!--T:16-->
 +
This is the official FreeCAD online help. Please note that the whole online help system is currently being reworked. It will be used to generate a .CHM file, that will be distributed with the binary packages of FreeCAD. At the moment the online help summarizes some of the most complete sections of this wiki.

Using FreeCAD

Introduction

Basic application

Workbenches

Workbenches are collections of tools that are used for a relatively specific task.

These are the base workbenches bundled with every installation of FreeCAD:

  • Freecad16.svg Std Base. This is not really a workbench, but this category serves to collect all "standard" commands and tools of the system which can be used in all workbenches.

Macros

Macros are relatively small snippets of Python code that perform a simple or a complex task that is not available in the base FreeCAD system.

Power users have written various macros to enhance FreeCAD with more capabilities.

Since FreeCAD 0.17, many macros can be installed using the Addon Manager. For a list of the macros refer to the macros recipes page. For manual installation see How to install macros.

External workbenches

When many macros or functions are developed together, and are organized in toolbars and menus, they can become a new workbench.

External workbenches are collections of functions that are not part of the base FreeCAD system, usually developed by experienced users, and targeting a particular need.

Since FreeCAD 0.17, many workbenches can be installed using the Addon Manager. For manual installation see How to install additional workbenches.

Online Help

This is the official FreeCAD online help. Please note that the whole online help system is currently being reworked. It will be used to generate a .CHM file, that will be distributed with the binary packages of FreeCAD. At the moment the online help summarizes some of the most complete sections of this wiki.
