Is it enough to keep all points symmetric? Are there cases where more dimensions have to be / should be added?
Thanks for the answer. From the last example, symmetry is not enough. We also need to keep nodes coincidence.

Re: [sketcher feature request] auto constraints symmetry

@chrisb So you think all points should be made symmetric. To be honest: that's not how I would constrain it, if I had to do it all manually. I would indeed create a rectangle and prefer vertical and horizontal constraints and add only one or two symmetries. well, that would work for the dummy exampl...

Re: [sketcher feature request] auto constraints symmetry

How would the sketcher know that you want a symmetric constraint and not just a regular node? well, i don't really get your question. When I make an "item" (edge, circle, etc.) symmetric against a given axis, I would expect that the "created" nodes would be automatically constrained as symmetric eg...

[sketcher feature request] auto constraints symmetry

Hello

I hope I'm in the good sub-forum.

using the symmetry tool in the sketcher works really good. But each time, I find myself constraining the newly created nodes using ... symmetry constraints.

Wouldn't it be possible to automatically create those constraints?

your images are my default FreeCAD build by now ;)
By the way, I personally wish I could use this appimage as default Freecad, but I always wondered if the files made with this appimage are guaranteed to work with "main stream" daily Freecad?

there is at the moment no method to add/delete control points.
in such a case you have to recreate the complete spline again.
The quoted post is from 2018. Is there something new in 0.19? Can we add/remove points from a b-spline?

This is the Selection View, it's also available in regular FreeCAD.
How did I miss that? :shock:
