Re: Naming of FreeCAD entities

Hi all, Why not just rename PartDesign WB to BodyDesign WB. Just this single step alone might remove nearly all confuison, newbies are facing - regarding bodies vs. parts etc .... And "Body's" and other primitves assembles to Parts, many Parts assembles to assemblys, many assemblys assembl...

Re: FreeCAD for 2D drawing

How would you translate the '=' constraint to a TD drawing? How do you like to have your "design" decision that something has to be "=" documented? I might be wrong - but - right now - you can just make a screen-shot of your sketch, put it in a Word document or something else. C...

Re: FreeCAD for 2D drawing

Currently, FreeCAD works like the following: you create dimensions during your construction (sketch, extrusion length, fillet ...), and then you create dimensions in the drawings you produce (TechDraw). That's what I like to question. Why create dimensions that are already created? You seem to ask ...

Re: FreeCAD for 2D drawing

constraining a sketch is quite different than what would be a working or shop drawing. so no, I dont see this as cool I agree. But for simple 2D designs, even some that go to a workshop, being able to directly draw 2D sketches inside TechDraw would be really useful. For example if all you need is a...

Re: FreeCAD for 2D drawing

Same here like Zolko described. also I'd like to have - in a configurable way - not only just the sketch but any aditional Info like angular constraints, diameters, dimensions and so on. It does not realy make sense that you have to re-do any dimensions using TD while you've done all this work this ...
