Re: future features in TechDraw workbench ??

it works ! Sélection_463.jpg Then I tried to open your svg file in different software programs to observe what you have done. I noticed there was no image in Gimp, Firfefox and Pinta. Only KoulourPaint was able to "show" drawings. For information, when I open my svg file with those programs there is...

Re: future features in TechDraw workbench ??

I must not be following your steps properly... I tried three methods which give the same results : In TechDraw I right-click anywhere in the drawing and select "Export PDF". I select the drawing in the construction tree then File--> export to PDF. I select the draw in the construction tree then Fil...

Re: future features in TechDraw workbench ??

I don't get this here with v0.18 or v0.19. Is it possible to post your FCStd and Svg files? In Freecad it looks like the 1st picture I have uploaded and after export it looks like the second one. I said "... svg file's frame appears in the drawing " but maybe "frame" was not the right word. "Border...

Re: future features in TechDraw workbench ??

I knew this tip and I don't use it because there is no way to change the line width of the helper circle, therefore it looks like an edge of the part which might be very confusing. Another way is to draw a circle with the Draft workbench (make sure the "Make Face" parameter of your draft object is s...

Re: future features in TechDraw workbench ??

Adding an extra circle doesn't really work because the area inside this extra circle hides every shape in the background, it would work if we could make it transparent. By the way, I noticed when exporting to pdf, svg file's frame appears in the drawing (as illustrated below) Sélection_450.jpg Does ...

future features in TechDraw workbench ??

Hi freecad users, I am currently using the TechDraw workbench because I need to make 2D plan for machining a part. I noticed there is no function to automatically draw length of thread, or to draw circle as a construction line. I had to draw those shapes in LibreOffice Draw then export to .svg file ...

Re: A2plus incosistent DOF

You are right, the circular constraint was supposed to appear in the construction tree. I just re-opened the freecad model and even though the tree indentation is correct (i.e. circular constraint was there) I still get the same DOF.
As you suggested I joined, the freecad model.
