Organizing an solid modelling CAD reading group (toward FOSS CAD)

Reading Time: 1 minutes

I’m starting a new reading group!

The idea is to get a good background on parametric solid modelling CAD (think solidworks, proE, openSCAD).

(to be clear, NOT how to use the tools, but how to write new ones or contribute to FOSS implementations).

I think the first group meeting would simply be an overview of existing approaches and the pros/cons of existing FOSS CAD software (as well as introductions to each other).

Proposed time is 6pm EST Sundays over google hangouts (and possibly simultaneously in person in Camberville, MA), totally open to other times.

  1. For the record, FOSS stands for Free and Open Source Software, and this isn’t in relation to FOSSCAD – which, might throw you in jail depending on your age and where you are in the world.
