Notes for Windows users

  • The following Windows versions are supported: 64-bit 7/8/10/11. 32-bit Windows is not supported.
  • The package can also be installed from the Chocolatey manager. The Chocolatey package is currently not up-to-date.

Notes for macOS users

  • MacOS 10.12 Sierra is the minimum supported version.
  • For macOS 12 and older the "Unsigned Intel disk image" should be used, the signed version does not work on those systems.

Notes for GNU/Linux users

Most distributions carry FreeCAD in their official repositories, however, if the distribution doesn't follow a rolling release model the version they provide might be outdated. Instead you can download the AppImage above, mark it as executable and launch it without installation.

Please see the Installing on Linux page for more installation options, including daily packages for Ubuntu and derivatives.

A portable version that doesn't need installation can be achieved by starting FreeCAD with these commands:

cd path/to/directory_containing_AppImage/
chmod +x ./name_of_AppImage_file.AppImage
HOME="$PWD/Settings" FREECAD_USER_HOME="$PWD/Settings" ./name_of_AppImage_file.AppImage

More information about FreeCAD's environment variables can be found on the configuration page.

Development versions

FreeCAD's development is active.

  • For development builds and development source code, see the weekly builds page. Weekly builds are available for Linux, MacOS, and Windows there. For Linux, daily builds are also available: use the snap package's edge channel or the FreeCAD daily PPA (the later only for Debian-based distributions).
  • To compile the latest source code, see compiling.

Additional modules and macros

The FreeCAD community provides a wealth of additional modules and macros. They can now easily be installed directly from within FreeCAD using the Addon Manager.
