Re: Assembling Model from pre-defined separate parts by linking

For some reason the Place Linked Part dialog does not show the LCSs in the parts I have imported. that's because the LCSs are not in the "Part" container, they are in the child "Body" container. You have 2 options: when using PartDesign Bodies, don't "wrap" them inside...

a new version v0.11.4 is out, and this reverts to the previous behavior. Please update and test, and report if the problem persists

Re: Assembly3, A2plus, Assembly4? Get united!

I've heard Assembly 4 doesn't have topological naming issue. Can you provide a reference to this "heard" discussion? he might be referring to what I said in another thread . Actually, Assembly4 is immune to the TNP only if one constructs the assembly using master sketches and datums. You ...

Re: Internal server for FreeCAD

I don't know if this makes any difference to your coding but could you please presume that someone will want to remove something like this later. I want someday for FreeCAD to go into the school system and stand alone operation is a big advantage. I plan to remove all internet connection code and a...

Re: Topological Naming & Sketches on Faces

Zolko wrote the opposite: create first the datum plane where you want later the face to be, and make the pad up-to the datum plane. I tried that approach and when I edited an early feature the datum plane got thrown about. you have to create the datums referenced to other datums, not to some previo...

Re: Topological Naming & Sketches on Faces

The work around seems to be to always manually create a datum plane equal to the face. the opposite: create first the datum plane where you want later the face to be, and make the pad up-to the datum plane. You can even put the plane at angle and it'll work. No toponaming problem and fully parametr...

Re: If FreeCAD were a commercial package how much would it cost?

if I'm not mistaken FreeCAD is LGPL and that allows propietary derivatives no, it allows dynamically linking of proprietary software to it And either way there's nothing stoping FreeCAD devs (legally) from selling compiled binaries and is there something that prevents ME from selling compiled binar...

He made the GPL license, from which LGPL was derived. LGPL which is the license of OpenCascade, without which FreeCAD wouldn't exist. So please show some respect.

variant Link

Hello, I have finally managed something that I wanted to do for a long time, and something that has been requested many times in the assembly forums: variant links. This is a link to a part but with varying parameters, meaning that you can isert the same part several times, but adjusting the paramet...
