The assembly and part must be in separate files. Put them in the same directory and open the assembly.

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

my goal is to assembly a chassis like a one in the attached picture. I want to have only one FC design of a single TSLOT profile, and have the main freecad desing with the previous part "repeated" for each axis in the length I required yes, that's what variant links are for, exactly. The ...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

there's a BUG in the "Variant Link" objects, I'll try to explain. ... the issue shows when I try to insert the second "Variant Part" and attach its "LCS2" with the child "LCS1" because the import panel only shows in the "Attach To" selection "P...

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

Are you suggesting that FC Users should forget about 'Parts' altogether? Parts are good – even necessary – for assemblies and multi-bodies. Heck, Assembly4's "Assembly" is a Std_Part. It's also necessary for complex designs, like surface design. But if you design a "normal" part...

Re: Adding Parts as a new type of add-on?

One idea I have is to create a new type of addon called "part" I think that your idea is great, but please choose another name as "part" because that one is used and abused all over in FreeCAD. Another idea is to create a "partlibrary" package type I prefer such a libr...

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

These bodies were created inside a Part since, from what I have gathered, this is the correct procedure. where did you get this-one from ? You can do this if you want, but only if you intend to re-use the entire Part with all its constituents. In this case the part is already an assembly ... this w...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

Very often I make some sub-assemblies with more than 10 Parts containing LCS(s) that I use in the main assembly. I fail to see your workflow. I tend to make logical and hierarchical sub-assemblies that are as much as possible self-contained, and thus need little information from other sub-assemblie...

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...
