Folks, thanks for your help with this new video that is now live on YouTube:
[video=youtube_share;0C4TjrTPCHY]FreeCAD for Beginners | Design a Marble Maze - YouTube
The latest version of the model used in the video that is about 80% complete is attached. To complete this model I need to add the remaining constraints that position the holes and wall cuts and also add parallel constraints to all of the walls.

Watching right now.
Thanks for the credit. Perfectly spoken my nick
Thank you for the excellent and insightful tutorial. This is a great alternative to OpenSCAD if you don’t want to learn the language.
Yeah. I am a software developer myself and I have trouble to imaging a real world object build using loops and commands.
OpenSCAD is got for simple things, but FreeCAD is way better and easier for simple things.
I agree about visualizing 3D objects from openSCAD scripts. I think it helps if you’ve done a reasonable amount of programming in LISP. Many ‘normal’ programmers have great difficulty with LISP.
LOL, does not help. I wrote a complete LISP based interpreter/parser for your OS, which used to use LISP based scripts to install applications.
Does not help!
I’m a bit surprised. It did help me. Interesting. I’m sure you agree though: LISP is a weird bird of a language
Just finished watching the video well done and very informative. Now I need to finish the model so I can print one for my great granddaughter.
I just finished the video as well. Nicely done.
