Re: Changing font size for all existing dimentions

I don't think so. There are different techniques implemented in FreeCAD. So you can in sketcher apply some changed presets to all existing sketches. You right, and it's more convenient, but at least I have solution that works now, not "sometime in a future". But it will be great improveme...

Changing font size for all existing dimentions

Hi everyone! Little bit dumb question, but I need to change font size for A LOT of dimensions, so doing it by hands is kinda unreal. Is there any way to do it with a less effort? Changing size in TD preferences is only have effect on new objects... My first idea was writing a script, but why invent ...

Re: Asm3 - assembly with ~200 fasteners.

Was able to put all needed fasteners with reasonable success. I went route with fasteners inside nested assemblies to keep main assembly with minimum amount of constraints, and It works. Now I can move all axis by changing value of PointDistance constraints and assembly is stable enough. Of course n...

Re: Asm3 - assembly with ~200 fasteners.

First question, starting at the beginning (table): Why do you use a group for the components to link them twice over, into table assembly? and further into main assembly? instead of having components as parts of assembly? Just because it makes model more solid and allow me to reuse bodies and compo...

Re: Asm3 - assembly with ~200 fasteners.

My tupence, - Create each part as just that, a part. - Create hole patterns per part. "Publish" them points from each sketch. Group them sketches by intended screw size(diam.+length). Name the sketches by screw size(diam.+length). ... Thank you! Have to sleep with that to understand :)

Re: Asm3 - assembly with ~200 fasteners.

Grayed files just up to date and do not need to loaded and recomputed. But I have load them all on windows - already wrote about it. If you want to change something in a linked file - just click on it and do whatever you want - this change will be propagated to the main assembly. Great feature, sad ...

Re: Asm3 - assembly with ~200 fasteners.

Done! don't know what's different between downloading individual FreeCAD files and downloading the whole package as .zip (both look identical), but I guess downloading individually screws up link path? Anyway... it all works and I am able to open your file easily in Linux (without disabling partial...
