FreeCAD & QT
« on: 2011.09.28, 22:36:02 »

I'm having a look at Free CAD.

It is "platform independent".


"FreeCAD is an Open Source 3D CAD/CAE program, based on OpenCascade, QT and Python."

While I have no experience at compiling sources --QT or otherwise--, (is that even necessary?), I'm willing to give it a go, (as long as it's not too time consuming).

However, before I begin, can anyone here who is knowledgeable on such matters, tell me if I'm getting in over my head AKA wasting my time?

Thanks.

Sorry - but you're in over your head :)  From the Opencascade website:
http://www.opencascade.org/getocc/require/ - it needs OpenGL support...
