Re: PropertyBag (Variables)

We already have more than One workbench to accomplish such a task. Why should we urgently need another way? that's the exact point of this thread: to harmonize 3 methods that do more-or-less the same thing, and make them compatible. PropertyContainer? yes, this sounds good. I'll make that the choic...

PropertyBag (Variables)

This feature exists as a separate workbench called DynamicData, it exists in Path as PropertyBag and it exists in Assembly4 as Variables: they all do the exact same thing ... and which is a very very cool and useful functionality. I spent some time comparing them. Thank-you, I think we don't do suc...

Re: Assembly container icon

But just having a string property telling "I'm an assembly"? -- maybe you need to elaborate further on this. The starting point is that there are repeated requests for a specific assembly format. Some people argued that the Std_Part was meant to be such an assembly container (and Asm4 has...

Re: [Assembly 4] Part orientation flips based on variable (rotation angle)

Re: Assembly container icon

why not the current yellow blue and green icon for assemblies and the old for regular parts Yes, indeed, why not. But that's not the core of the subject: it is to have different icons for a standard part depending on its "Type" property. Currently, this information/property is not used. I...

Re: Asm4: how part files loading, when an assembly is opened?

can I for example open only the assembly and open only the necessary part when I need? But also I can't understand why some parts or sub-assemblies are not active sometimes and I need to reload them? There is an option in the Preferences (General > Document) called " Disable partial loading of...

There have been many discussions about assembly files/containers for FreeCAD, some of which can be found here and here and here . Currently, with FreeCAD v0.19, you can build fully functional assemblies using only core FreeCAD App::Part - App::Link and PartDesign::Body objects. There is no need for ...
