Hello everyone. So I’m planning on creating an open source CAD website application. Of course, you may say to yourself, this has been done before, but I hope to do things differently.
To begin with, it’s going to be completely free and open source allowing other web developers to collaborate and bring our efforts together. One of my main objectives with this CAD is to have it community driven, by this I mean features and changes are based on the communities decision. By doing this, I hope to produce a good application that everyone will love. I also plan to maintain it, I’ve noticed lots of previous apps have been abandoned.
So what’s the purpose of this post? Well, I want to collect features/ideas from the community. All I’m asking is for you to suggest ideas for the app. Once I have a decent list, I’ll try and organise them into releases.
I hope to begin development on this very soon! If you have any questions please let me know.
Also on a side note if there are any good, experienced web designers out there please get in touch! (I’m not paying though as this is an open source, non-profit project).
A background on myself. I’m a full-stack, full-time web developer in the UK and just wanting to fill up my free time with something useful to people.
Many thanks, look forward to reading your ideas.
