Any Fusion folk interested in helping make Migrating_to_FreeCAD_from_Fusion360 a thing?

That probably explains the increase in daily number of people asking to join the Facebook group.

Expect deluge of questions like:

"why isn't FreeCAD doing it the way I was doing it in Fusion"

Here's a wiki page that was created to deal with that:

I think the entire page needs to be redone to remove all the snide and/or negative remarks throughout. Keep it positive by explaining the features that might be different, without being defensive.

In today's social media environment trolling is a way of life. No web page will stop that, but explaining how and why FreeCAD is different can be useful.

I can probably make a page about why Freecad matters and why almost all commercial CAD programs are terrible investments.
I'm really passionated in hating most commercial CAD programs!
