Could you be a bit more specific ? I had to Google for Sketcher Workbench, so I am nor familiar with it. In any case, Code_Saturne wil need a mesh, so plugging it into a workbench makes sense if that workbench goes beyond simply defining a CAD model, but also includes some meshing features. I have not looked into detail at what FreeCAD is capable of (I experiment with it briefly every year or so, to check on progress, but the build I last tried seemed promising but was not robust).

In any case, we do not have any current actions concerning FreeCAD, as we work mainly with the SALOME platform (also based on the OpenCascade libraries for the CAD part). I would be happy to try to help someone experimenting with or working on such an integration, but there is no current initiative on this aspect to my knowledge.

Best regards,
