Fornjot is an early-stage project to create a next-generation, code-first CAD application.
The goal of this project is to create a CAD application that:
- uses a code-first approach;
- is open source;
- is broadly available, with support for all major platforms;
- is based on a new b-rep CAD kernel, written in Rust;
- provides a well-rounded feature set;
- and support for different modeling languages.
This goal is not realized yet. Far from it, actually! But Fornjot is slowly getting better, step by step.
