    I love FreeCAD, but I can't draw.
    IMO, it would be better to rebrand with a new name at the same time, something along the lines of "BigDickCAD". In that case I could just trace out a new logo.

    I'm working on a CAD startup that automates model building. I looked at the most popular software to make our compatible with, and every steel and construction professional I talked to said FreeCAD was never used. Seems like AutoDesk products and Tekla Structures is the main CAD software for construction firms, so that's what our software is compatible with.

      cool story.

      Does your employer know that you are jerking off to cartoons drawn by other men while you should be working?

      It's a startup, so I actually am at the top of leadership. Regarding the Yuri Yuris, I don't masterbate to them. I find them cute like a puppy or cat is cute. Maybe you should reevaluate your life if you automatically think of sex when you see cute drawings.

        I've never heard of your startup, and none of the steel or constructions professionals I know have heard of it either.

        I wouldn't want to use anything that the boomers aren't using.

          We have some high profile demos scheduled for next week, so I hope you will be on the lookout for us. We are marketed as an AI company because not doing so is literally pissing money away, but our product is very good. I am very confident you will hear of us soon. We are pitching to large steel fabricators in the South East USA to start, but our salesman is a high level Trimble salesman who has potential clients all over the world. Be on the lookout for us.

          Also, of course boomers run the show. We are working with a very high up boomer who has decades of experience selling CAD software. If your product is not boomer friendly in this industry, you're fricked.

      FreeCAD supports several file types.
      More recently, for Construction, there's a big international push for standardization around the IFC schema, since only americans are okay with having their balls completely busted by Autodesk and Revit... And FreeCAD supports IFC pretty well (although among the FOSS options, BlenderBIM is better at this).
      In the next years, FOSS should become a lot bigger in CAD.

        Americans and not having standards is basically the norm.
        Another industry cucked by this idiocy is Gas Station shit. Yurope and China all force IFSF, while in America is basically, like 10 different flavors of every thing and scrounging ebay for some $2,000 new protocol card that speaks to your Gasboy, Veeder-Root, Gilbarco, Wayne, Franklin Incon, whatever bullshit. It's insane.

        BIM and CAD are closely knit. There's a lot of room for improvements in their software. That's all I'll say for now.

          no they are not.
          CAD will break at the scale BIM is worked at.
          our company used to use SOLIDWORKS as BIM software but that shit would become dangerously unstable at distances BIM is worked in.

          Simple rule of thumb is, CAD is for machine engineering and BIM is for Structural engineering.

          one requires a far more detailed outlook and a more flexible way to use it for FEM other needs to be stable with shit tons of parts.

          You not understanding there is huge difference in BIM and CAD and you coming to CAD software commenting about your BIM bullshit shows your startup is doomed to fail because you don't understand how to properly focus your product.

            I appreciate this comment. I had already shown the product to experienced steel detailers and a software salesman at Tekla. Both are extremely excited about our product. We are targeting BIM it sounds like from your post, but there may be applications for CAD too. I will take what you said to heart though and really understand the difference. I am a suit/business guy. I have no experience in the industry, but when I am approached with software that works well, took years to develop, and automates tasks in seconds that usually takes hours, I know we have something. The steel detailer said that, to him, this is CAD/BIM software. He has the experience and he doesn't make this distinction that you did. I will seek more clarification from him, but the salesman has no issues with us calling it CAD+BIM software.

            Our product automates tasks that are usually done by hand in Tekla Structures from reference Revit documents. Our dev is working on adding.ire supported software for this automated task. He says it is a CAD/BIM software so that's why I find your comments interesting. Perhaps identifying as CAD software is a marketing mistake, which is bit unfortunate. But on the other hand, the professionals in the industry say that our marketing is fine (they say it's good actually).

    The logo should be a sketch of someone shooting himself in the foot, because that's what it's like using this software.
    Ive been able to hop on any of the commercial 3d CAD softwares and operate most of the features without having to reference documentation because it's intuitive and self explanatory. Trying to do even the most basic things on FreeCAD was a headache so I gave up and went back to solidworks. Maybe the functionality is technically there but it isn't as intuitive to use so it isn't worth the time.

          Sounds like a minor issue, sure, but starting out with such an ambiguous menu with 2 different options that sound nearly synonymous is a big red flag. I encountered similar bad design elements on every step along the way until I realized it simply isn't worth it.

          Or if you want to design a house in freecad, you have the same tools spread between three workbenches: Arch, BIM, and techdraw. For what reason? figures.
