Re: scaling

design. Opened a body, created a sketch, but cant draw on it because of a parameter dialiog where nothing seem to be documented or is able to dismiss or click anything. with an open sketch, you click the line icon (it's white with red dots on each end) and then click at 2 places. BAM there's a line...

Re: How would I make a simple path array script?

You could get the source code and look at how it was done in the Draft Path Array tool.

Re: Is this possible in FreeCAD

In this forum thread, there is a parametric door I did as an example for another user's question like this.

Re: Understanding and using selections

OK, I've got something, hope I can explain it correctly. The problem is in the selection mechanism. In sketcher editing, the selection uses the standard 'addSelection' function. The problem is that, in sketch editing, all edges & vertices are re-numbered in a different manner than in "normal" mode....

Looks like you already were in :) https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=53127
Yes, that was me a while back.

I have put my foray into FC & python on back burner a couple times. Either life got in the way or frustration. 8-)

Re: Understanding and using selections

I even have something very weird. In sketch editing mode, if I do the below sketch & selection, the vertex appearing in SubObjects is none of the selected ones. It's an endpoint (probably the starting one I guess) of the selected edge. Both selected vertex are totally ignored (but they are correct ...

That is because you are not doing it right. carefully measure and make about 1879 or more arcs and circles. Then try to bulk clone, scaled and remove dependencies.
One of us is, indeed, doing it wrong... :mrgreen:

Re: scaling

https://photos.app.goo.gl/a1DnWfkLGioKTnHE7 It spits out error on trying to clone or scale this simple arc. This is not consistent with the docs, nor video tutorials. I am not doing anything wrong. It has to be some toolbar item , or pref. I open Draft workbench, create an arc. Click scale and proc...

Re: A volume text string (3D-text)

Hi! I need to use a volume text. I use Draft (ShapeString) + Part (Extrude) to create a volume text string. I want to align it on another object. I use a Transform utility to move and rotate it now, but I want to parameterize its position. How can I do it? How can I learn the resulting string's len...

Re: How do you remove clone dependencies?

Well, I understand the bit about patents I used to run a invention prototype business. I will say what others have noted. You have chosen, during a time crunch, to attempt to learn a very complicated tool and you've chosen to use the one part of it that most use only for certain operations, because ...
