Finished watching FreeCAD tutorials. Did feature-on-feature exercise for badge (see my video here). (1.5 hrs)

  • What were the videos that you studied to learn FreeCAD? Please include links.
  • Was Lesson 3A and 3B from FreeCAD 101 sufficient? How could we improve the lessons so you can get the FreeCAD Badge faster?
    • I wasn't able to successfully generate a pad after just watching lesson 2 (perhaps because I wasn't closing the sketch? Not certain...). But it all made sense after watching Lesson 3A and 3B. Those would have been sufficient by themselves. In fact, really Lesson 3A would have been sufficient. The only new thing I learned from 3B was how to rotate the image without a mouse (by clicking and holding and then moving the cursor). So if you could tighten up Lesson 3A (e.g., edit out the questions and extra stuff), that would be great.
  • How long did it take you to install FreeCAD 16?
    • Not long at all. A couple minutes.
  • How long did it take you to learn the skill to perform the Feature-on-a-Feature Exercise?
    • After watching the videos, it all made sense and was easy. It was a bit intimidating at first, but now it seems straightforward.
