Re: App::link of sketch in PD Body

here comes the shapebinder tedium: It seems that all your complains will go away if you know how to use the binder, and which binder to use. That is partly my fault, as I should have done a better job introducing this new feature. I plan to make a proper video about it when I have time. The SubShap...

Re: Assembly3 preview

I would like to take this opportunity to make a suggestion: wouldn't it be wiser for the highlighting in PartDesign to be applied to the only function selected in the tree rather than the entire body? Perhaps it is difficult to set up? I also want that. And that is what all the other CAD are doing....

Re: Assembly3 preview

The only drawback is that one grey copy of each type of screw imported remains outside the Assembly container, but this is a very minor snag. Well, here is another hidden treasure for you. You can toggle the 'ShowElement' property of a Link to collapse all array elements, and group that greyed icon...

Re: App::link of sketch in PD Body

Does an App::link of a sketch not provide the data needed by Part Design Body to use it as a sketch? I hope you realize that there are many variations of Link. The normal Link overrides the linked object's Placement, which obviously does not work in Part Design use case. The sub Link works to some ...

Re: Part Simple Copy versus Part Transformed Copy

vocx's quote is correct. The difference only shows up if there is parent group having some placement.

Re: Material improvements

I didn't go through this entire thread. I jumped from here . Just to clarify some related issue about map accessing. The linked post uses Python code injection for map key retrieval, which has been removed during the big merge for obvious security reason. The current expression parser supports simil...

You could just mention in the git summary that it's related to the pull request but doesn't necessarily have to close the issue.

Re: Ticket #3379 - [Expressions] Cannot reference driven constraint

This problem has been fixed by this PR.

Not only constraint name, spreadsheet cell alias can also be freely named and referenced, although unlike constraint name, alias still must not contain any space.

Re: [BUG?] Negative numbers in feet/inches interpreted wrong

The problem is resolved by this PR. When you type the text, remember to separate the unit string and the following number with a space. This is crucial, or else and string and number together will be recognized as an identifier. For example 1m10mm, will be recognized as 1 and m10mm.
