Fedora 30 : A general purpose 3D CAD modeler.

I don't use the Computer-aided design (CAD) solutions but today I tested a good one with Fedora 30.
The FreeCAD application is an open source option product design.
This is available on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X+.
The full list with all features can be found at this wiki page.
