Thread: 3D CAD Program under Leap?

  1. #1

    Default 3D CAD Program under Leap?

    I had started experimenting with FreeCAD under OpenSuse 13.2, but it is now no longer integrated with Leap. Is there an alternative (3D) CAD program worth looking at? Or will FreeCAD be integrated as before? If so when?

    Cheers

    You can try bricscad, you can test it free for a month.
    You can download the rpm package from their site.
    I was using it in 13.2 and now with leap 42.1 an found out it
    works better in leap 42.1 no crashes so far though my license is only for the
    classic version with no 3d. I use blender for 3d (version 2.76b).
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    Check on the packman site, if it's not there yet it should soon be for Leap.

    Someone needs to fix the OpenCascade package where ever it's being
    pulled from.....

    In this case perhaps a bug report/email to the packman maintainers.
