I reached a milestone last weekend with a successful render of a brick assembly in FreeCAD.

All brick models were created with the legify macro code available at:


Thanks to some excellent FreeCAD developers I was able to create the assembly using Assembly4 Workbench and then render using Render Workbench.

I’ve created a zip of all the model files and below are some highlight renders and tech draw workbench diagrams.

This was all done using the instructions I posted previously for getting the latest version of FreeCAD on Big Sur running with the Render Workbench (with rendering performed by Cycles).
