Re: Constraint in the slot - where is it coming from?

It must be a bit old tutorial. Currently FreeCAD is more strict when comes to redundancy. Problem here is that coincident constraint on second pair limits two things: distance between left and right center (which is good) and radius of that arc (which is already determined so it is bad). You should ...

-sketch2macro feature: You draw some sketch, click and you have it available as macro just like slot, hexagon etc now, ready to be inserted into another sketch. I second this idea. Including writing usage wiki page this sounds like a cool project for a month of student's time. Also, IMO the idea of...
