Hi Dan!

Thank you very much, I'm hopefully it helps!

FreeCAD utilizes a "one sketch creates one solid" approach to modeling, and as I tried to illustrate in the video, creating the "base" component consists of a sketch for each "solid to be", which is then "padded" (or extruded) into a the various solids that make up the base body. 

I'm still learning, but for me, it is a very viable alternative.

Thanks again!

Helpful video, it makes FreeCAD look a lot more approachable than I thought. I have to give it a whirl. Thanks!
