Edit STL file in FreeCAD

Hello friends welcome to FreeCAD tutorial in our previous tutorial we have learned How to Convert Mesh body into 3D Solid in FreeCAD. In this tutorial we will learn How to Edit STL File in FreeCAD.

FreeCAD is a free and open-source parametric 3D modeling software that allows you to create and modify 3D designs without any difficulty. STL files, on the other hand, are a common file format used in 3D printing and it is neutral file format supported by any printer around the world.  A STL file contain the geometry of a 3D object and serve as a blueprint for creating physical models. By combining the functionality of FreeCAD with the versatility of STL files, you’ll be able to unleash your creativity and bring your ideas to life through 3D printing. So let’s dive in and discover the world of FreeCAD and STL files together!
