CAD models are very important in OSE Development. Dedicated FreeCAD workbenches make the creation of CAD models easier, faster and more reliable. In this video we will show essential steps to create a FreeCAD workbench and provide some tips and tricks. We will set FreeCAD up for development. Then we will go through different important documentation sources: auto-completion, automatic python modules documentation, FreeCAD homepage, FreeCAD source code, Module developer's guide, and source code of FreeCAD add-ons. Then we will install the OSE D3D printer workbench module and explain how it works. Finally, we will briefly talk about source code licensing.
