If you want to contribute CAD Designs to OSE, then join this team! OSE is always looking for help in developing the GVCS and ultimately in creating a collaborative network of people to draw upon for all open source projects. Whether you're a seasoned engineer or brand new to CAD this is a great place to learn, share and create in an open, collaborative environment with people from around the world.

How to Join

You can start by posting a short text about yourself and your skills on the Introductions category of the discussion forum.

Then, please read the Team Culturing page and fill out the survey, as described there. Don't forget to add [[Category: CAD team]] to your survey page so that you get listed.


The goal of the CAD group is to create a completely cross-functional design team that can utilize everyone's expertise in developing refined products. One person can create a concept or design and then send it out to the rest of the design/CAD team for review with their specific specialties in mind. Here are some of the specialties that we'd like on the team:

  • For Modeling and Drafting:
    • 3D Modeling
    • Mechanical Design
    • Drafting
    • CAD Standards
    • GD&T
  • For design reviews and discussions:
    • Hydraulics
    • Drivetrain
    • Welding
    • FEA (Finite Element Analysis)
    • Manufacturing
    • CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing)
    • HFE (Human Factors Engineering) & Safety
    • Biologists for Bio-mimicry
