Creating a "connected vertex test" in Sketcher

Starting a new post. This is a continuation of: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=45001#p385066 The discussion summary; while in sketcher can we test for connected/unconnected vertex. After a sketch is created is there a way to test if all the vertex are really connected, and if so th...

Re: suggestion: easier way of disabling Combo view

I run my left monitor like this (pic), no obstructions on the right monitor. VD is my macro. I only wish that when the propery view refreshes the sub options would stay expanded, besides that it's great. All the screen positions are remembered by FreeCAD so it's very easy to use.

Re: Bug: Sketcher - multiple Arc-Line corner fillets

Let me float this for an addition. While in sketcher, in the constraint panel, add a button to highlight all constraints. This would light (currently in yellow) up all points including polyline and b-spline connected points that have more than one connection.

Re: Bug: Sketcher - multiple Arc-Line corner fillets

It would be great if sketcher could change the color of constrained points or unconstrained points, not sure which is more practical. A constraint is created when drawing a polyline per point but there is no visual feedback, isn't that odd that we can't see those?

Re: stuff trying to complete the 'sketch'

In case you don't know: One thing that's not very obvious and almost hidden is "map mode". In the tree highlight any sketch, go down to the properties, click on the map mode and then edit, you will get a pop up window. This is important because it shows you how/where that sketch is used in the model...

Re: Pocketing Odd Shapes

When sketching you need to make sure the connections (between 2 lines) are valid. While out of sketcher, select your sketch in the tree and then goto the toolbar and select Part design-Validate Sketch, go thru the list and check for errors. You have some on this sketch.

Re: Pocketing Odd Shapes

In draft do (see pic). Also in draft I turn the grid off before I exit. This icon will give you a sketch, drag that into a body and your ready.

Re: 1 Day Old Newbie - Welding / Merging / Combining

And when/if using sketcher to fillet, is there a way to precisely specify a radius? Yes, that's where constraints come in. If you look at the middle of the triangle you can see a point that is constrained to the axis. I agree with chrisb, go do some reading and make some models, post them here and ...

Re: Angling shapes inwards after padding

Not saying there anything wrong but see how tilting the sketch makes for faces that don't meet. Not the best glue connection.

Re: Changing the numbering scheme

MSOlsen65, thank you. When I first started here I wanted to help so I tried to express all my new experiences to get things changed. Turns out a few of the things did get recognized and worked on but there is a price to pay, someone else did all the work. When I see stuff now I ask myself "is the is...
