CadQuery 2 Documentation

CadQuery is an intuitive, easy-to-use Python library for building parametric 3D CAD models. It has several goals:

  • Build models with scripts that are as close as possible to how you’d describe the object to a human, using a standard, already established programming language

  • Create parametric models that can be very easily customized by end users

  • Output high quality CAD formats like STEP, AMF and 3MF in addition to traditional STL

  • Provide a non-proprietary, plain text model format that can be edited and executed with only a web browser

This Getting Started Video will show you what CadQuery can do. Please note that the video has not been updated for CadQuery 2 and still shows CadQuery use within FreeCAD.
