Re: When to choose Part Design WB or Part WB?

Are the primitives in Part WB fundamentally Sketch based? No. To describe it slightly simplified: the first level of complexity are primitive geometric objects, such as cube, cylinder, ...

Re: When to choose Part Design WB or Part WB?

IMO we can use both workbenches depending on the situation. Often I see that the pupils use Part because it's more robust and intuitive and they get fast results. Starting with a given part (imported step file) both WB can be used to do modifications. We still are far from direct modeling. I think ...

Re: [Solved] SVG as geometry import crashed Freecad

I too am experiencing the crash issue with import of Inkscape 0.92.4 svg files, both drawing and geometry. I have so far tried switching bounding box settings and saving both Inkscape svg and plain svg. I get the drawing/geometry dialogue but FreeCAD just crashes thereafter. OS: Linux 4.16.12-rt5-ko...

Re: How do I select an individual wall, or fix wall joints?

As paullee says it probably does not matter which we use as long as the workflow suits us. Most of the tutorials seem to favour using draft lines or DWire. I have similar issues as I need to create walls with two thicknesses (or preferably brick outer, timber frame and plaster lining) however, readi...

Re: serially reading the Manual

I'm not sure where to post this as this is one of the threads that deals with navigation of documentation and accordingly may be the most appropriate. Having looked at the documentation for MediaWiki it appears that there is an option to have the TOC/Index occupy a percentage width of the page Custo...

Re: which wiki system for a documentation

@bernd I like the look of Readthedocs and LibreCAD has set up a project there to explore the possibilities and the Godot Engine is a good example (mentioned in my recent thread on Broader Documentation As is a link to an article on forms and purposes of documentation https://www.divio.com/blog/docum...

I just added a thread about broadening the documentation on the Development forum. https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=33223 It is aimed at generating discussion on various forms of documentation and how access to them is organised. I support the notion that the wiki is the primary sou...
