3D Printer Workbench

The 3D Printer workbench is the best example of a workbench using the platform.

About FreeCAD Workbenches

FreeCAD workbenches are groups of tools and functionality within the open source FreeCAD software. In the OSE case, we use them for designing GVCS Machines using OSE Part Libraries and design methods embodied in our Design Guides. This is all done within the open source, extensible FreeCAD software.

List of Workbenches from OSE

  • D3D Freecad Workbench - 3D printer workbench can generate frames, corners, and mount the axes and bed on the frame. This allows for rapid modeling of any 3D printer geometry, and to extract rod/frame angle sizes for a cut list, and to determine range of motion.
  • OSE Piping Workbench - can generate any plumbing fitting in the world
