Christian Aurich created a FreeCAD macro that imports Eagle board XML data into FreeCAD:

The common solution until now is to export your board with eagleUp and assemble it with a case in Sketchup. This also gives you some drawbacks. The most important to me was that the Sketchup files are mesh based like the data used for 3D printing usually, but for further use in CAD systems this is not really usable. You also will not be able to get a STEP model that you can give to your costumers out of this data.

    This is great news, we just need a good CAM processor inside FreeCAD to turn it into a real alternative for other expensive CAD packages, at least from a hobby user perspective.
