Re: Part container+datum object as base of an arch object

Correct. In that case, you create a new simple copy and change the base of the Arch Structure to this new object. It is obviously a bit more work, but it is still parametric because you don't lose the original object and its history. Sometimes you need to work around the current limitations, but yo...

Re: Part container+datum object as base of an arch object

I can't reproduce the bug in Steel_Column_Part_Container+LCS_Assembly.FCStd. The holes are displayed correctly: Strange, may I ask if you use a more recent version of FreeCad? The steps to reproduce the bug from a generic file are these: 1) Create a body with an hole 2) Create a part container ad d...

Re: Part container+datum object as base of an arch object

So, for your case, I would take the assembly, I would create a simple copy (Part_SimpleCopy) from it, and I would use that as the base for an Arch Structure. I can create a copy using the Part_SimpleCopy of the Part_container+Datum object, but I lose the links between the parts created using datum ...

Re: Part container+datum object as base of an arch object

Here attached the screenshot with notes for the two examples. In the second screenshot the 3D view is zoomed on the base plate of the arch "structure" object. The request for help to @Zolko is reported here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=34806&start=680 Thanks Carlo for looking i...

Part container+datum object as base of an arch object

Hello, I tried to create an assembly with a part container with two bodies inside it. Then I created an arch object based on the assembly without problems. I created the same assembly with Assembly4 workbench and I found these problems: 1) the holes became squares after the transformation in the arc...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

Thanks Zolko for explanation, this is a bug an Arch/BIM: when you delete the LCS_Origin in the Model, the calculation is correct (you have to recompute the objects). You can recreate the same bug when creating a datum object inside Part_Container_Assembly. How can I add a datum object without Assemb...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

Hi Zolko, I hope you can answer to my question. I create a simple assembly (a column with a base plate) with assembly 4. I would transform my assembly in an arch element using Arch/BIM workbenches. The new object, named "Structure", has the holes of the base plate as squares (zoom the base plate of ...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

Instead of a spreadsheet, I added the info directly as property to the Part (works also for Bodies). This is still very early work in progress. I'm really not used to cut-lists and part-lists and BoM-s, so all help and suggestions would be welcome. For my job (strcutural steel elements for building...
