Re: Automatic naming of linked bodies (instance naming vs source naming)

Thanks for the clarification! So the name can be considered an unique identifier of the part or link. And the label is the user given "name".

Re: Automatic naming of linked bodies (instance naming vs source naming)

I think it gives a nice overview to be able to see what each part really is directly in the tree. But I realise it is a matter of personal preference.

Re: [Sketcher] Part of sketch flips when changing dimensions in fully constrained sketch

Sorry for replying so late Levenberg-Marquardt solver (use it after switching on the expert settings in Sketcher's preferences) usually handles this better. Thanks for the suggestion, this solved my issue! Levenberg-Marquardt behaves the way I am used to from commercial CAD software. It maintains th...

Save a part externally from within an assembly.

I have created an assembly where I have drawn all the parts in the same file. Now I realize I want to save one of the parts as an external file to be able to use it in other assemblies as well. Is this currently possible? Ideally i want to preserve the linked parts in the assembly as well. So they p...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

I need to draw many cabinets with different dimensions. My intention was to use FreeCAD to draw one parametric chipboard cabinet, and import it several times but with different dimensions. I very much understand your need, and I have the same need I definitely understand this as well. This is a com...

Re: Automatic naming of linked bodies (instance naming vs source naming)

Below is a mockup of what I am looking for.

The parts are named:

Code: Select all

Instance name (partname)
Instance name is what is changed on a rename. The source partname information is sort of already available, see the red ring.

Automatic naming of linked bodies (instance naming vs source naming)

Is it possible to get automatic naming of linked bodies so that the name of the links follow the source in some way? For example, I have made a part that I call "Beam" and then I create a link to that part using alt+drag method. I would then like that the links get a name that shows the connection w...

If you have any source video material that you would like in a highlights reel please link it in this thread. Either send files using send.firefox.com or if ...

Re: Highlight reel for 0.18 release

Is there some estimated release date set for 0.18? I could assemble the release video if there are some weeks notice and the source material is available. Also, I think the next video should be uploaded to a more official FreeCAD youtube-channel. The first one was on my personal channel and that may...
