Gratitude. +1 (by Jason)
Agreed. I don't use it every day, however when I do need CAD it's been my go to application ever since I learned about it a few years back. My first impression was flawed in that I assumed it was only for simple / basic CAD projects. It's quite powerful (deceptively so).

Congratulations (by Davide D'Angelo)
I want to say a big thank you for this software.
I usually work with solidworks, but i'm looking for linux 3d parametric cad since 2005...
I know Freecad, but I find it too unstable...

I just found Solve space, which I didn't find before, and I think it is simple and that just works!
How long is this project alive?

Going on with my learning path..
How one can contribute in developement?

SolveSpace was started 13 years ago in may 2008 by Jonathan Westhues and written entirely by him until version 2.0 in 2013 when he released it as open source.

After that it was maintained for many years (until the end of 2020) by Whitequark.
