This template is the guideline for a FreeCAD development project. It follows the rules of the Getting Things Done (GTD) process. The projects are collected in the Development roadmap.

Purpose and principles

This is a development project to find, discuss and implement a more advanced STEP i/o in FreeCAD.


  • reading/writing complex STEP files into Assembly data definition (with color and all the additional information).
  • ....
