Re: Basic CAD-Method in FC

But is there a way to see and acces my ground view in every sketch? Use the first picture to create a master sketch in a body and fully constrain it. Make a Sketcher>CarbonCopy of of the master and toggle all edges to construction geometry. To create the first tread in a Body, Edit>Duplicate Select...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

no, you need to first wrap (move) it into an App::Part. That was part of the tutorial, remember ? And in the App::Part you can then map many LCS to particular geometrical features of the STEP part, and place the STEP part into the assembly attached by those LCS, thus at those particular geometrical...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

There is a new version of Assembly4, v0.6.4, with improved handling of assemblies in 1 file. Thank you for that. I was wondering how Assembly4 might interface with master sketches controlling an articulated assembly in one file so came up with this example. Drawings are available here: http://www.i...

It appears that the sketch was overconstrained. I eliminated several constraints and added new as shown below:

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

In other words: do you think the following workflow would make sense : new Document new Model new Part create LCS in Part create master Sketch in Model attach LCS to master Sketch move Part → Model (in the document tree) place Part in the Model by attaching its LCS to the LCS in the Model (thus all...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

So please, by all means, experiment and tell here what you found. May-be there is something I overlooked and we could have a very useful combination. I extracted this carburator subassembly from a miniature engine model created previously. (See https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=3996...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

Out of curiosity: why move the Body inside the Part and not the Part inside the document ? You'd achieve the same result, no ? This is a holdover from how I am currently working to build a (pseudo)assembly. I use the Part container for a subassembly. It is placed in its location in the overall asse...
