AFAIK only 2D DXF/DWG elements can be imported.

Re: Roof Arch_remove displaced result

Fixing this is relatively easy: instead of changing the placement of the 'Roof', change the placement of the underlying sketch. The same approach that was used for 'Roof holes'. I am inclined to call what you are seeing a bug. You could argue that the Z of the 'Roof' logically has an impact on neste...

Re: Question on Arch Subtract

For the GIF animation I have used ShareX . I am using the BIM workbench because BIM is my main reason for looking at FreeCAD. The BIM WB is an extension of the Arch WB, combining its tools with tools from other WBs. But I am just starting out with FC, so I cannot say what would best suit your workfl...

Re: Problem with BIM extrude and circle

OK, after some (limited) testing I think the Reextrude tool tries to create a single extrusion from the selected face that fits inside the original shape. Thanks for pointing this out.
I wonder if the icon colors are correct. The 'normal' extrude tool should perhaps have the yellow icon?

Re: Question on Arch Subtract

Aha, I now understand that I have misunderstood the issue from the start. In my defense: the tool is called Arch_Remove and, coming from a dwg-CAD background, for me the word 'subtract' points to a boolean operation. But you are right: the Arch_Remove tool does not perform as described. It seems the...

Re: Question on Arch Subtract

Re: Proposal to remove 2-point rectangle

Two suggestions:
  1. Keep the 2p rectangle and modify the Explode tool so that it first turns a 2p rect into a 4p rect.
  2. Keep the 2p rectangle and create a separate tool for a 4p rect.
