Re: How to add dimensions to a drawing (blueprint)?

I have the same question but the answer doesn't help me, I just get a blank blueprint when I click on "puts the selected objects on a drawing sheet" I created a box and a cylinder through the box, then copied the cylinder several times, grouped it and then cut the two objects. How do I get a neat bl...

Re: How to change units in FreeCAD? (forRadius less than 0.01mm)

Thank you two for the answers! I think Normandc's solution was the easiest to implement for me! Thanks!

I tried to use this macro: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/free-cad/index.php?title=Macro_ArrayCopy to copy the object, but FreeCAD always crashes and I think 250000 objects are sim...

How to change units in FreeCAD? (forRadius less than 0.01mm)

I need do draw cylinders with a radius of 0.001 mm, but FreeCAD limits me to a minimum radius of 0.01mm. I know the accuracy is even more than a micron, but how do I change the settings that I can work with such a radius? By the way: Points instead of units would be fine too as long as the relations...
