It's in Sid:

Code:
ade@Pc1:~$ apt-cache search freecad
freecad - Extensible Open Source CAx program (alpha)
freecad-dev - FreeCAD development files
freecad-doc - FreeCAD documentation
Code:
ade@Pc1:~$ apt-cache policy freecad
freecad:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 0.11.4446-dfsg-2
  Version table:
     0.11.4446-dfsg-2 0
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable/main amd64 Packages
You could either run a mixed Testing/Unstable install,or backport the package yourself.
Or you could just run Unstable,the choice is yours.

See here:

Sometimes packages are removed from Testing if serious bugs are discovered after filtering down from Unstable.
