Re: Assembly4 Master sketch

The variables are Angle_crank = 30 deg and R_main = 23 mm. I selected the master sketch and in Map Mode I selected LCS_Origin as the attachment with mode Object's YZ plane. ... I then selected the model, created a new coordinate system LCS_crank with first attachment 'Vertex' - 'Sketch_master:Verte...

Re: Assemly 4, multiple of the same part extruded to different lengths?

I have a (simplified) sketch of an aluminum extrusion in the Parts group of an Assembly 4 assembly as shown here: ... I'd like to extrude this sketch in various lengths in another document and assemble them together into a frame. Alternately, I'd extrude it to different lengths in the original docu...

Re: FC 0.19 crashes after Assembly4's "Import Datum" command

I did some tests on a PC with an old Xubuntu 14.04.6 operating system and the results don't change: FC crashes as described in the first post. yes, I've been able to reproduce the crash now, with the latest AppImage and my own compile, but it doesn't always crash, sometimes it does, sometimes it do...

Re: Animation Add-On

Any ideas? classical FreeCAD topological naming problem. The good way to do that is to create an LCS that will be rotating w.r.t. the fixed engine (attach the LCS to the fixed one, and in the AttachmentOffset set the angle to the variable that drives the angle). Then, attach the crankshaft to the r...

Re: Draft_Array: Selecting Datum as Axis

This looks very promising, I very much would like to test it, but I cannot do it through git commits (breaks my repo, my fault, but I can't spend hours trying to fix it). Since it's Python files anyway, is there a way to grab the modified files and replace them on my system ? You can just go into h...

Re: [Discussion] Splitting Draft tools into their own modules

I'll bow to the majority if you guys find this absolutely necessary, but I'm more of the same opinion as triplus: neither too much nor too little that makes it 3 who don't agree (with the new splitting) and 2 who like it. Indeed! Anyway I think that a bit of cross workbench standardization, being w...

Re: FC 0.19 crashes after Assembly4's "Import Datum" command

Hi Zolko, I wrote the version of Assembly4 installed on my system in the first post, then in the last post I forgot to write it again: Assembly4 version: 0.9.4 2020-05-25 I think it's the last one available. ah, yes, sorry, didn't see it. I can't reproduce the crashes you see. Do you have another s...
