Re: Re-link external geometry

+1 very good questions. I had been looking for that as well, but did not find a way yet. So I am trying to find ways to keep external geometry as few as possible or minimize the impact of redoing them. One way is using work planes and master sketches. If you just redo the external geo of your master...

Re: About funding and all that

an organisation that could offer some level of support would may be something that some academics with largish grants may want to buy into. Thanks for the insights. I am not aware what Libre Office is doing but I will have a look. However, setting up some kind of support business is an interesting ...

Re: About funding and all that

In universities we tend to get discounts that mean we can bulk or site licences the CAD programs so then we don't tend to have the problems with limited installations. ... There is no way I would be able to get a voluntary licence through procurement. Universities are difficult, I agree. Neverthele...

Re: About funding and all that

a) What is the goal of FreeCAD? What is when the goal depends on the money? It would be a circular dependency. b) It takes hands to create foundations Crucial. With little money I think people would rather trust persons than organisations, but with more money that's different, so its wise to start ...

Re: Is FreeCAD for serious business?

Hello, straightforward question: Is FreeCAD up to the task of getting things done for small companies, every single design (mostly shells and casing) and even able to take up on serious tools like Solidworks? Thats depends if benefits outweight the limitations and drawbacks. For example I enjoy hav...

Re: About funding and all that

Very interesting discussion, couldn't believe that is spans 5 years now. A few k on CAD becomes less significant, especially when you consider the huge cost of retraining your staff and moving your back catalogue of work into a new program. Please allow me to take another perspective on this. Large ...

Re: What is with the thou?

Welcome to the FreeCAD forum. Did you see the sticky post telling what is typically needed to with problems (see here )? I did not observe what you see with the version I am using right now.

Its the same with the "ThroughAll" setting. Problem_PartDesignMidplaneHole.png Procedure to reproduce the problem (or open...
