    FreeCAD vs Autodesk Fusion 360 opinions

    Uses constrain sketch design and is a quite different interface from Fusion 360, but the essential core is pretty similar and an excellent alternative especially for linux users that don't want to mess with wine.

    It is free and works on Linux while Fusion 360 is susceptible to license changes at any time. FreeCAD currently has some issues in the UX and ease of use compared to Fusion 360 but once you get used to the workflow you can use it as full alternative.

    It's the most similar to Fusion 360 while still being free.

    FreeCad has been my go to since I left school, and the free student demo of solid works, as there are many packages you can add on to make it more customization. In my opinion, FreeCAD vs Solidworks is like Windows vs Linux, SW polished early with money, but given time, FreeCAD can find a huge market and be a serious competitor.

    You must buy any individually modules to work in Sheet, Part, Assembly, Welding and so you need much money for BricsCAD
