Re: reference other object

I was trying "X" instead of "x"... Is there easy way to list all these properties?

Re: reference other object

Primitive location (position) is not where its center of mass but some ot its vertices. You could use <<Cube>>.Placement.Base[0] but I am sure there should be some X, Y, Z reference which I cant find right now.

Re: pointers on creating snap-fit bottle opener

If you dont want this to be separated later just design two pieces that fit to each other and around the metal part and after printing and checking the fit just epoxy them together. Why sweep the prongs when they are straight? Just pad them to desired lenght. Also consider printing orientation. That...

Re: Cutting a line / Problem

Before applying the tool, is the point-on-line constraint in the center double, i.e. on the x-axis and on the vertical line or only on the x-axis? Sorry for not providing a file. Here it is with double PointOnLine constraints. 1. Create arc, center PointOnLine to X axis 2. Create nonvertical line b...

Re: Cutting a line / Problem

First prease if possible upgrade yout Freecad version at least to the latest stable - 0.18.3. Second you should try to provide your file for examination. There are a number of ways that things can be constrained to visually display the same but which could create different results. And finally Trim ...

Re: Assembly3, A2plus, Assembly4? Get united!

Just my two cents of semicmprehencible thoughts and probably a little rant :) I think that the general public forgets that FreeCAD is not a monolith application to perform a single task but more of a collection of tools to operate on a solid geometric data. Which must be robust, suitable for a lot o...

And a video. https://youtu.be/PBUtu6cMVmQ It is easy to break if you are not carefull with constraint values :) OS: Windows 8.1 (6.3...

Re: Use sketch for kinematic

Isn't this similar to the assembly without solver thing ? Assembly4 was not usable in regular builds before the Link Merge and I didn't need actual assembly in my designs so far so did not bother to test it. Now I have it installed from addon manager but did not actually test its capabilities - aga...
