I think your glossary definitions might need to be clarified a bit to reflect what you are explaining to me here.
You're probably right; I gave you that link mainly so that you can see some of the FreeCAD words and their meanings.

Re: Access to information outside of a body [Part Design / Sketcher]

You use the term, "solid" to refer to the culmination of all the stuff that is contained within the body. The one, 3-D "solid" we see on the screen Yes. Right now a Body only holds things created in the Part Design WB, and the Part Design WB only creates solid models (not Shells). When you use the ...

Re: STL to Solid - "Part object is not a shell" error

It was funny reading Mark's comment urging to upgrade. (snip) I do miss Mark's comments. He helped me a lot with my first FreeCAD steps. I miss his comments too - sometimes he wrote some pretty humorous stuff. He joined the forum not long after I did, and he helped me a quite a bit along the way as...

Btw its NOT best idea to lock axes with SHIFT when SHIFT produces also different codes when pressed alongside. SO-if you need to draw a wall along X/Y of your UCS, you drag the wall from some point and w...

I draw the trace /start point/ then want to enter just the length.
Direction/axis has been locked on start with <Shift> key.
Drag the cursor out of the 3D view.
Look at the panel on the left; a length can be entered from the keyboard.

Whether the first doc...
