- In terms of building practical items, FreeCAD is more intuitive to use and easier to learn than Blender.
- In terms of 3d modeling, rendering, and animating organic objects, Blender has more powerful tools available.
- Both FreeCAD and Blender are open-source and community-driven, which is super cool!
- Pros: Free, supported by a community of passionate developers, and you can literally make an impact in the source code if you wanted to.
- Cons: Not as developed as professional CAD/3d modeling software, but is definitely slowly getting there over time.
