Open Access FreeCAD Journal.

Just wondering:
People, haven't you thought about the creation of a peer-reviewed open access engineering magazine (Maybe with particular emphasis on the use of FreeCAD as CAD tool)?
Regards

Re: Feature Request: Expression engine for rectangular array creation tool.

This will not be parametric. It will not create any new instances later. Also this can be only integer numbers and have meaning only at the moment of creation. Could you provide an example expression that you want to enter there? Just want to store the number of rows(or columns) in a spreadsheet ce...

Re: Feature Request: Expression engine for rectangular array creation tool.

Please give some more details. Are you talking about something happening during editing a sketch or something with a sketch? perhaps you can provide a mockup showing what the tool should do. I am talking about the tool pointed by the arrow in rectangularArrayPattern.png and the Expression engine sh...

Re: Designing a bolt with a helix of just one turn

The drawback I see in this approach in that the tool for creating rectangular array of elements does not count with the expression engine for controlling the number of repetitions it creates. (BTW, how hard could be to implement it?, Going to make a feature request :) ) And the number of "single pro...

Designing a bolt with a helix of just one turn

Just found a way of designing a bolt using a single turn helix. Would you mind to give your opinion about it and tell me how resource consuming is this way of working compared with others producing similar results? Just uploaded a video detailing what I've done. FreeCAD: Single turn helix for design...

Feature Resquest:Constraint name in the sketch

Good morning.
How hard could be to implement that for selected constraints in a sketch, their names appear in the sketches apart from (or optionally instead of) their values?

Re: Nested Assembly4 variable dependence.

vA = f(vN) (and vB = g(vN), being f and g arbitrary functions? no, that's not (currently) possible: stuff can be passed from a part to the assembly, not reversed. If you still want to do it, you need a 3rd part that is included in the others: lets make an Asm4 Model that you call MCP (MasterControl...
