To split the geometry into the separate profiles, right-click on the sketch in the Graphics window and choose “Split Sketch”, within the sketch’s sub context menu . It’s good to see people are discovering HeeksCAD and HeeksCNC and doing tutorials about it. Neil did some tutorials about using HeeksCAD. As the plans are to port heekscnc as a tool path generator for FreeCAD, Can I did see a YouTube video of a FreeCAD tutorial where the user.

It is great to see that this tool exports STEP. I’ve been working for a few months on a slicing tool tuorial can create toolpaths directly from STEP files. No more huge bloated files of tiny linesegments, and bizarre mesh errors due to leaky STL meshes.

I’m in test now, hoping to have a useful product soon. Unfortunately you seem to have missed one of the great features of HeeksCAD, the ability to use parametric sketches. I haven’t had a chance to improve SketchSolve for some time now, but I think that you will find it very useful in it’s current configuration.

HeeksCAD HeeksCNC

A simple heekcsnc of the sketching is shown at http: Just discovered your tutorials today on Youtube, not knowing they were yours until I saw your blog. HeeksCAD seems to be a great tool. Keep the heekkscnc coming! I haven’t gotten the chance to watch the video, but I’ve been looking for software like this for a while. Blender was, as you’ve said, not meant for technical drawing, and the other package I found avoCADo was just too new to be useful.

Does heekscnd support assemblies? Haven’t fully tested it, but it’s a path I recommend for linux users. I can see that you are an expert at your field! I am launching a website soon, and your information will be very useful for me.


Thanks for all your help and wishing tutoial all the success. I would like to see a open source case for a maple or arduino uno with step by step backup and edit. I know, I am doing Prusa tutorials now, then will likely do some more with the Heekscadthanks for asking!

If you compare HeeksCad with google-sketchup how much do they have in common? Sometimes a bit too much anyway I like this autosnap-functions snap middlepoint of lines and circles snap endpoints of lines snap to surface etc. In HeeksCad I seem to create cylinder move it to the appropriate position. I don’t know much about inventor but it does it in a similar way.

HeeksCAD tutorials

If it can be done as fast as with tutprial please show me how to do it. To each his own, I like Heekscad: You talk about using polygons rather than cylinders, which makes sense.

However I cannot find out how to make say a hexagon of a given size say I have to write an assignment on an engineering company that use CAD to design their products. What company use this software? Professional drawing can be accomplished to the right extent with the aid of CAM Software. The files can be organized in the righteous manner with the aid of CAM Software.

Hello, In my view CAD software for mechanical design uses either vector-based graphics to depict the objects of traditional drafting, or may also produce raster graphics showing the overall appearance of designed heeksvnc. Thank you for putting an effort to published this article.

You’ve done a great job!

I have used OpenScad, and it’s great for modifying existed objects, but I just can’t think that abstractly when prototyping. Unfortunately, even though HeeksCAD is a great software, their Wiki and tutorial choices honestly leave a lot to be desired.

This program has a lot going for it: I have linked to Google translate version of this site for us anglophones. I also uploaded the 1st in a series of project videos showing how to make STL files, and then use Skeinforge to troubleshoot your parts. These are the project videos that I have shot so far, or made more than once and ready to film.


Wine Glass took about 4 minutes to make and skeinforegealready uploaded 2.

Preparing Geometry – HeeksCAD & HeeksCNC

heeksccn Spiral Shot Glass shot, but not uploaded, going to see if there is any interest before I do more work: Circuit Board Spacer 4 off re design shot but not uploaded 4. Bed spring 4 off introduces arcs, drawn but not filmed 5.

Frame vertex 6 off drawn but not filmed 6. Drive pulley 3 off drawn but not filmed, I show how to “cheat” a gear out of stl Anyway here is the 1st set of videos. I have also filmed the full construction of the Mendel X and Y carriages, but the video still needs to be edited, unlike these screen casts.

If I should continue this project, please let me know in the comments.
