Re: Assembly 4 / Part Design Feature design best practice

Hi Zolko, 1) Oh, I did not realize / know variables! That is looking very interesting, thanks! 2) I like to have separate files for the single parts for re-usability, in case of the lasercut pieces you are right, I could put them in one file because they all belong to each other. 3) That is my main ...

Re: Assembly 4 / Part Design Feature design best practice

Hi Reox, thanks for your answer, I did play around with this workspace, works well for a starting point for lasercut designs. But this did not integrate into my parametic design workflow. For example for the rotational axis I designed all the part for 4 mm acryl. When I was finished I realised I had...

Re: ASM3: Designing / Changing parts.

Ok, solved. Found my "Spacebar" ;)

Did not notice that the objects are hidden when I add a sketch. When I blend them in everything is working.

Best regards.

ASM3: Designing / Changing parts.

Hello, I started playing with the ASM3 workbench with a simple project: A drawer for my kitchen ;) So, my idea is to sketch all the parts and then add holes and further details as the design gets along. At the moment my design is at follows. Now I like to add the holes for screws, sinks and so on. F...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

Hello, I just installed the workspace and I'm very happy with this. I am relative new to freecad and have a question regarding the workflow for the part construction: I assembled the structure in the attached image. How do you proceed when you have to change parts? For example drill holes to connect...
