Designing model locomotive kits using Assembly and other workbenches

Say if I were to design a part, which comprises of: * solids that are made by CNC, 3D printing or casting; * sheetmetal processed by lasercutting, waterjet cutting or photo etching followed by folding; and * soldering and/or welding of the above parts together to form the finished part then an assem...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

I have just installed Freecad 0.19.1 on my computer, and like to play with the assembly 4 github code. Suppose if I check out the main branch into a directory, then how can I make FreeCAD uses the github directory assembly 4, instead of the stock plugin? 1) thank-you for your interrest in this code...

Re: loose, transition and interference fit in Assembly 4

So in assembly 4, how can one implement loose fit, transition fit and interference fit? In my experience, assembly fits are applied to individual models or drawing dimensions not the assembly. Perhaps this would be better implemented in the TechDraw workbench if at all. However, the crux of an asse...

Re: loose, transition and interference fit in Assembly 4

So in assembly 4, how can one implement loose fit, transition fit and interference fit? It would be great if the workbench and the assembly data structure has a way to specify loose fit and interference fit, in particular the amount of interference. This is an interesting question ... in today's im...

Library for meccano and eitech standard parts and assemblies, and a workbench similar to LeoCAD for assembly of kits

There are construction kits such as Meccano for imperial measurements and Eitech for metric measurements, as well as LEGO, all of which have a library of standard parts. Given that Parts, PartDesign and Assembly 4 are becoming mature, wouldn't it be great to develop a FreeCAD library based on Parts,...

loose, transition and interference fit in Assembly 4

I am glad to see that FreeCAD 0.19 has finally be released, and that Assembly 4 is becoming usable. So in assembly 4, how can one implement loose fit, transition fit and interference fit? It would be great if the workbench and the assembly data structure has a way to specify loose fit and interferen...

Loose / interference fits (was Re: Assembly 4 workbench)

Hi, I just had a look at the Assembly 4 tutorial: https://github.com/Zolko-123/FreeCAD_Examples/blob/master/Asm4_Tutorial1/README.md I feel that Assembly 4 is the most scalable way as it does not require the computation-intensive solver. The tutorial talks about attachment offset etc. So if a user w...

Loose and interference fit modelling in Assembly3

I've heard some good work in Assembly 3. I just wonder whether loose and interference fit modelling will be supported in Assembly 3? If not, then do we have allowance in the current data structure so that disruptive data structure changes are not required if such support were to be implemented in th...
