HeeksCAD

HeeksCAD is a free software Computer-aided design program written in C++. It uses Open CASCADE Technology internally for the modelling[2] and wxWidgets as its widget toolkit[3].

HeeksCAD supports cuboids, spheres, cylinders and cones as basic 3D solids. Further geometric objects may be created by sweeping or connecting 2D-shapes.[4][5]

HeeksCAD makes extensive use of local coordinate systems. For example, these are used to define the drawing plane and the direction of an extrusion.[6]

The program can be extended with additional plugins[7]. Plugins are available for Python scripting, milling and freeform surface modelling.
