Alternatives to FreeCAD for Mac with Open Source License

  • LibreCAD

    LibreCAD (originally QCad then CADuntu) is an open source 2D CAD application for Windows, Apple and Linux. It is based on Qt, which is a leading cross-platform application and UI development framework. LibreCAD can read DWG files (and others) as of the latest Nightly build. It writes DXF files, but can also export SVG, JPG, PNG, PDF and other files.

  • OpenSCAD

    OpenSCAD is a software for creating solid 3D CAD objects. It is free software and available for Linux/UNIX, MS Windows and MacOS. Unlike most free software for creating 3D models (such as the famous application Blender) it does not focus on the artistic aspects of 3D modelling but instead on the CAD aspects.

  • BRL-CAD

    BRL-CAD is a powerful cross-platform open source solid modeling system that includes interactive geometry editing, high-performance ray-tracing for rendering and geometric analysis, image and signal-processing tools, a system performance analysis benchmark suite, libraries for robust geometric representation, with more than 20 years of active development.

  • Antimony

    Antimony is a computer-aided design (CAD) tool from a parallel universe in which CAD software evolved from Lisp machines rather than drafting tables. Antimony is built on three mostly-orthogonal axes: A framework for tracking information flow through directed acyclic graphs A geometry engine for doing CSG A standard library of shapes and transforms

  • Sverchok

    verchok is a powerful parametric tool for architects, allowing geometry to be programmed visually with nodes. Mesh and geometry programming consists of combining basic elements such as: lists of indexed Vectors representing coordinates (Sverchok vectors are zero based) lists of grouped indices to represent edges and polygons. matrices (user-friendly rotation-scale-location transformations) Possibilities Comes with more than 150 nodes to help create and manipulate geometry.

  • ImplicitCAD

    ImplicitCAD is a programmatic CAD program, implemented in Haskell. Unlike traditional CAD programs, programmatic CAD programs use text descriptions of objects, as in programming. Concepts like variables, control structures and abstraction are used, just as in programming.

  • HyperFun

    HyperFun is a simple specialized high-level programming language. It is intended for modeling geometric objects and their internal volumetric properties (color, material density and others). A model can include objects of mixed dimensions (1D, 2D, 3D, 4D and even kD)) defined by real functions of point coordinates.

  • Archimedes

    Archimedes is a free and open source CAD (Computer Aided Design) software. It is a robust system built over Eclipse’s Rich Client Java Platform fully based on plug ins. This means it is easily extensible but also has a pretty thin core that allows you to select the features you need and drop the other ones easily.

    • Discontinued
      The project seems no longer developed. Last version, 0.66, released in June 2012, can be still downloaded from SourceForge.
