  • dune3d

    3D CAD application

    i was able to get this building (https://github.com/dune3d/dune3d/issues/3) and running on debian trixie. worth noting that the workflow seems to be mostly keyboard driven with no toolbox to create shapes that i could find.

    > I would love to see a successor to OpenSCAD

    There is quite a few "code" CAD's around https://github.com/Irev-Dev/curated-code-cad. Cadquery has contraints but isn't really a DSL.

  • Macad3D

    Free and OpenSource 3D Construction Tool

  • FreeCAD

    Link branch FreeCAD (by realthunder)

    JFTR, FCStd-files produced by RealThunder's LinkStage[0] (fork of FreeCAD) is not fully backward compatible with an official FreeCAD app, and wise versa.

    So, if you are planning to use LinkStage app for some large project, be ready to use only one app for the whole project and be ready to lost in whole or in part compatibility with the users of an official FreeCAD.
