If you are interested in collaborative CAD development, we are building an
open source CAD file for our open source CEB Press. The goal is to generate
a fully-editable FreeCAD file tomorrow. We are building it from a STEP/DXF
file generated in proprietary CAD software - which is not editable in
FreeCAD. Our goal is to demonstrate a workflow where complex CAD drawings
can be generated in days with a design sprint swarm - instead of weeks by a
dedicated draftsperson. See more info and join us at 1 PM CST USA tomorrow,
Sep 3, 2016 for a Design Sprint on this.


>From there, we will generate exploded part animations and 2D fabrication
drawings all in FreeCAD.

As an aside, we linked up with http://wikifab.org today - a very promising
template based semantic Mediawiki for open hardware documentation, check it
