Re: Is it possible to rename Origin coordinates?

@kisolre, rename, the object in the tree view. This is what I meant.

I have some old objects that have Origin127 Origin55 Origin13, I don't like to see this kind of unorganized numbering. Is it possible to rename this?

Is it possible to rename Origin coordinates?

I tried just renaming it, but this does not propagates through all objects that use it.
How can I refactor this? Is it possible?

Re: I have a sketch with a constraint that I can't edit.

Oh, I see, this is the result of entering the value as a function. Ok. Got it.

I have a sketch with a constraint that I can't edit.

I have a sketch with a constraint that I can't edit. How to enable it again? I don't know what happened. It appears int the property view in Blue. When I am editing the Sketch I can double click on it to check its value, but the field looks I moved this sketch to a new FreeCad file to share it here.

Re: Best approach for using parametric primitives with PartDesign

kisolre , I also managed to put the helix inside the body in 2 designs by copying it and pasting it in the Body. I think this body has to be active. I am struggling to do the same with a 3rd design. However, I am trying to use the PartDesign workbench to move this Helix to the right place (for me) ...

Re: Best approacho for using parametric primitives with PartDesign

Sure vocx, I am following this tutorial this is my Holy Grail. I was able to 3d-print many screw threads that work just fine with it including for waterproof designs. The question is what is the best approach? Since when I have this helix outside the body, some operations fail or I can't change face...

Re: Objects look smashed after a revolution

I did that. I tried many times to put the helix inside the Body. Now got it. I had to ctrl+c and cttrl+v tom makes it possible. I never imagined that dragging something inside of the body was different than copy and paste. The issue here is that I never could put the helix inside the Body since I co...

Best approach for using parametric primitives with PartDesign

What is the difference between (1) dragging a helix plane inside a PartDesign body and (2) Coping it and pasting it inside of the Body? 1 - Creates something called "BaseFeature with" the icon is a green arrow over a blue box. (I don't know what it is and how this works) 2 - Actually creating a copy...

Re: Objects look smashed after a revolution

... if you move it to the right place the issue does not occur. What does it mean? I mean, if the sketch has some places that are right and other places that are not right, maybe the wrong places should be removed from the screen so the user won't be able to work there since he is not allowed. So, ...
