CAD library for 2.5D parts (including gears) using svgwrite, dxfwrite or FreeCAD as backend

Project description

Cnc25D is a Python Package for 2.5D part design and cuboid assembly.

  • Cnc25D relies on FreeCAD
  • Cnc25D helps create FreeCAD macro
  • Cnc25D helps design 3D parts entirely with Python script
  • Cnc25D provides parametric ready-to-use design examples
  • Cnc25D helps drawing shape makable by a 3-axis CNC
  • Cnc25D helps positioning parts in a cuboid assembly

Have a look at the Cnc25D release documentation or the Cnc25D daily built documentation for more information.

The source code is available at under the license GPL version 3 or any later version.

Why 2.5D ?

3-axis CNC, laser cutter and water jet machine are getting cheaper and can be used in fablab, makerspace or hackerspace. 3-axis machine lets make 2.5D design, i.e. free xy-path at z constant.


Cnc25D is on PyPI.

To install Cnc25D:

  • First, install FreeCAD

  • Then, install the Cnc25D package with the following commands:

    > sudo pip install Cnc25D -U
    > cd directory/where/I/want/to/create/my/3D/parts
  • Or, clone the Cnc25D GitHub repository and run the code directly from there.

Feedback / Contact

If you find bugs, will suggest fix or want new features report it in the GitHub issue tracker or clone the Cnc25D GitHub repository.
