FreeCAD Development builds for the 0.19 development cycle

FreeCAD development builds for Linux, MacOS, and Windows have a filename in the form
FreeCAD-<dev-version>-<revision>.extension (revision = github commit count number)

Note: The development binaries are built regularly . The source archives (tar.gz and .zip) do not get updated, so they match the commit of the tag (746997e) and are therefore obsolete. You can get the latest source here: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/archive/master.zip

MacOSX

Binary developer builds (no compiling necessary) are available. Download the highest revision of the .dmg

Windows

Binary developer builds (no compiling necessary) are available. Download the highest revision of the .7z

The builds are portable and do not require an installation. Extract the file using 7zip and start the application by double clicking on FreeCAD.exe in the bin sub-directory of the extracted package.

FreeCADLibs_12.1.2_x64_VC15.7z is not required to run the binaries provided here. It is a package that provides all necessary dependencies to compile FreeCAD with VS2015/17/19 (both release and debug mode). The package is provided courtesy of FreeCAD community member apeltauer.

Linux

AppImages (no compiling necessary) are available (a kind of binary that can run on many Linux distros). Download the highest revision of the .AppImage

AppImage (delta) updates

For more streamlined downloading of AppImages download AppImageUpdate (GUI or the command line version). To perform an update:

# Using GUI
chmod +x ./AppImageUpdate.AppImage
./AppImageUpdate.AppImage ./FreeCAD.AppImage
# Command line

MacOSX

Currently we provide two versions for MacOS:

  • 0.18.15310 is slightly outdated compared to the official release, but runs very stable. We recommend to use this version, unless you want to use some functions not included here.
  • 0.18.16110 is the official release version. However, this version crashes on some MacOS systems unexpectedly. If you use this version, save often!

Windows

Installers are available.
The Win x64 installer uses Conda as a package manager, The binaries use PY3.6, QT5, and VS2015+
The Win x32 installer uses Libpack 11.11. The binaries use PY2.7, QT4, and VS2013

The portable builds do not require an installation. Extract the file using 7zip and start the application by double clicking on FreeCAD.exe in the bin sub-directory of the extracted package.

This release of FreeCAD is dedicated to our friend Roland Frank who left us in 2017. He was an active and well-appreciated member of the FreeCAD forum, and his video tutorials on the Learn FreeCAD and BPLFRE Youtube channels helped many people get started with FreeCAD.

A word of caution to users of v0.16: there has been tremendous changes to the PartDesign workbench, with the introduction of the Part and Body containers. A Body is now mandatory to create PartDesign features. When trying to edit a document made in v0.16, you will be prompted to migrate it automatically. If your model was done with a mix of PartDesign features and Part objects, the migration process will most certainly leave your model in a broken state! So if you are not willing to migrate it manually (expect having to delete some stuff and recreate it), it would be best to keep a working version of v0.16 on the side to edit your old documents.

This is the official 0.17 release of FreeCAD for Windows and Mac OS platforms. Linux users are advised to get FreeCAD from their distribution's repository, or from our PPA if using Ubuntu.

The AppImage should work on most modern 64 bit Linux distributions. Download the file and make it executable. It's self contained and should be portable.

Release notes

Note:
OS X build supports >=10.11
Win x86 supports 7/8/10
Win x64 supports 7/8/10
