I started learning FreeCAD this week and am progressing pretty fast in this program. FreeCAD apparently has Collada export, so I might even end up meshing stuff 🙀.
But I am pretty sure it is not good at texturing (if it can do at all). It also has no idea about Node reduction - not it's job). So I will have to do my UV-maps and LOD models by hand.
If I cannot find an alternative I'll have to learn parts of Blender and do the UV-mapping there - but If possible I'd rather like to dodge that bulllet. Are there any good one trick pony softwares out there dedicated to UV-mapping?
