Re: Draft PathArray on a Part container fails

By the way, selecting multiple objects before the path then clicking on the PartArray icon does not produce an array of these objects along the path. Seems like one of the object is used as a path.

Re: Using vertexes/vertices in Expressions

I just read the Release_notes_0.17. In the Part Workbench chapter, the Part_Attachment utility is presented. It seems to answer my question! I'm gonna play with that now...

Great work guys!

Using vertexes/vertices in Expressions

Hello, Short TL;DR version I'd like to place a Part cube next to another in non-trivial coordinates (cubes are rotated). Calculating position in expressions is quite cumbersome and not perfectly precise (visual gap between the cubes when zooming "too much"). I thought about using vertex coordinates ...

Re: Cut: resulting shape is invalid

Thanks to you tanderson69 and GeneFC, I now understand what happens. I'll change my array, even if I think it's supposed to work as is ;)
For future reference, there is a Wiki page explaining in more details how to turn on BOPAlgo check and how to check a part geometry.

Cut: resulting shape is invalid

Hello, I can't remove a cube from an array in the attached file. I get a "resulting shape is invalid" error. The file attached is a simplified version of what I'm working on, saved with FreeCAD 0.17. A first cut "020 Chevrons Cut" was done by removing "110 Vue en coupe" from "020 Chevrons Array". No...
