The Equipment tool offers you a simple and convenient way to insert non-structural, standalone elements such as pieces of furniture, hidro-sanitary equipments or electrical appliances to your projects. Equipments are based on Part shapes, which allow them to benefit from the solidity and possibilities of BRep geometry, and generate nice views when rendered to plan and section views.

As of version 0.17, equipment objects also have a ДаніHiRes property where a Mesh object can be attached. Equipment objects can then be made to display that mesh in the 3D view instead of their shape, which allows to use any high-resolution mesh objects such as detailed pieces of furniture commonly found on websites.

When using the Arch OBJ exporter, all equipment objects that are in mesh display mode will be exported as their mesh instead of their shape.


  1. Select a Part shape, and optionally a Mesh object.
  2. Press the Arch Equipment.svg Arch Equipment button, or press E then Q keys.


  • Equipments share the common properties and behaviours of all Arch Components


  • ДаніModel: A description of the model of this equipment.
  • ДаніUrl: An URL of the product page where more information about this equipment can be found.

The Equipment tool can be used in macros and from the Python console by using the following function:

Equipment = makeEquipment(baseobj=None, placement=None, name="Equipment")
  • Creates an Equipment object from the given baseobj, which can be a Part or a Mesh.
  • If a placement is given, it is used.
  • It returns None if the operation fails.


import FreeCAD, Arch

Box = FreeCAD.ActiveDocument.addObject("Part::Box", "Box")
Box.Length = 500
Box.Width = 2000
Box.Height = 600

Equip = Arch.makeEquipment(Box)
