Re: [It already exists, sorry for the unnecessary noise!]Feature request: named measurements on sketch (non-constraining

saved me from lots of frustration No worries, that details did frustrate me before i found the work around, that's probably a missing feature, maybe I should submit a request. Oh and you seem to imply it in your first mail, but for sake of completion these blue datum measures cannot be use in the s...

C'est quoi l'unité derrière les pouces, au fait? Les cotes sont en pieds ' - pouces " et fraction de pouces : 1' - 7" 3/4 = 1 feet + 7/12 feet + 3/4*1/12 feet ~ 47.6cm Simple je te dis...

Re: [It already exists, sorry for the unnecessary noise!]Feature request: named measurements on sketch (non-constraining

Thanks! This is EXACTLY what I wanted. Sorry, I should have found it myself. Now it seems so obvious. Note that if you create a blue/non constraining measure, to name it (for example to use it as a parameter in another sketch/object) you can't double click on it to just change the name: it will swi...

Re: backpack design challenge

One of the coolest design I saw recently is this armadillo shape shell backpack: https://mypangolin.com/collections/renegade Maybe easier to design than some completely soft fabric surface? Each of the segments are flat and stiff and bent in 1 direction, there is an inside liner to fill the gap betw...

Re: Voxel Workbench

I have created a workbench to draw in 3D using cubes (those annoying voxels :lol: ): What do you think? Javier. Javier, a bit late to the subject, but if you ever search for ideas of new features for your bench I would recommend you have a look at: https://www.3dslash.net/index.php Their tool set i...

Re: Help with 3D Printing

This middle thingy is higher than the rest so one layer doesn't take much time. There should be some time gap between layers. Ding ding, this is the money comment (as long as the model has no errors and the slicer is properly configured). You will need a very effective ventilation or the clamp side...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

kbwbe, Thanks for your work on updating the assembly bench! I've skimmed though the thread, so sorry if I missed it. Is it possible to simulate gear/chains angle constraints with your assembly solver? I do not expect it's realistic to do a full interference analysis to move the gears depending on th...

Re: Datum entity vs Body

If i understand the GP issue, it would be how can we share a datum plane between bodies? The possibility to define one plane and then use it in multiple solids could be useful. What is the current way to do it right now? I have tried to move it to a part and link it the the part's origin but somehow...
