    FreeCAD, like many modern design applications such as Revit or CATIA, is based on the concept of Workbench. A workbench can be considered as a set of tools specially grouped for a certain task. In a traditional furniture workshop, you would have a work table for the person who works with wood, another one for the one who works with metal pieces, and maybe a third one for the guy who mounts all the pieces together.








    • Freecad.svg Std Base. This is not really a workbench, but rather a category of 'standard' commands and tools that can be used in all workbenches.
    • Workbench FEM.svg The FEM Workbench provides Finite Element Analysis (FEA) workflow.
    • Workbench Inspection.svg The Inspection Workbench is made to give you specific tools for examination of shapes. Still in the early stages of development.
    • Workbench Part.svg The Part Workbench for working with geometric primitives and boolean operations.
    • Workbench Reverse Engineering.svg The Reverse Engineering Workbench is intended to provide specific tools to convert shapes/solids/meshes into parametric FreeCAD-compatible features.
    • Workbench Start.svg The Start Workbench allows you to quickly jump to one of the most common workbenches.


    The following workbenches are no longer included after version 0.20:

    The external workbenches page lists all that are known to this community. Most are easily installable from within FreeCAD, using the Addon Manager, found under menu Tools → Std AddonMgr.svg Addon manager.
