Re: BIM - Objects Library vs External Reference

... Arch reference keeps a link to its original file ... (so far). ... the objects will appear where they have been defined in the original file. This is fantastic news Yorik! That "(so far)", does it refeer to movement and rotation of the linked file? If so, and in my opinion, a proper assembly fu...

Re: Create and display local coordinate system

This is so exiting! Since you use catia you are possibly used to the command "point on extrema"? That principle would be highly sought after in the long run, if possible. Perhaps you've seen the discussion of Translate a point with a vector direction. I think this would be a nice addition to your wo...

It seems you are working on "surfaces originating from points and wires"?
Specifically for sheet metal or surfaces in general?

Re: translate a point with a vector direction.

Is there already a tool (with GUI) for "translating" stuff in general?

Re: fcFEM - FEA from start to finish

...handle plasticity and collapse (and buckling?) (simplest example being the slip and pull-out of structural elements along elasto-plastic interfaces); 3) include simple, traditional, beams (idealized fasteners) and shell elements (isotropic and non isotropic) . 4) include general material and geo...

Re: datum plane creation is unintuitive

Other than that I totally agree with you about the wording used in everything involving placement and especially this "Z-axis is always in the direction of movement". I would suggest the following: For offsets there are ONLY two direction, one way or the opposite way, with respect to its origin. Thi...

Re: datum plane creation is unintuitive

... transfer things I learned here directly to the corresponding Wiki page: https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/PartDesign_Plane Reading that page gave me hickup on this sentence "A datum plane is only sensible when there is at least a body." Shouldn't it read: "As of now [todays date] sadly enough, da...

Re: Datum objects in App::Part

... if wanted or required in part workbench or anything else there is nothing against moving it. Yes please! We've waited sooo long for this to happen. Datum driven design is within reach!!! Just checking: we are talking about Datums not having Part-container as a parent, right? Id est, Part-contai...

But if someone has a use case for textures outside the architectural field, I'm open to implement it :)

I've got a proposal: threads + Torx heads.
