Re: GSoC Proposal: Extended functionality of Rebar Addon

There are standard shapecodes but specials would be needed also... can't remember if standard code allows for this or not.
Sorry long time since I've been on site!

Re: Newbie - box with repetive cutouts

Looks nice :D Regarding the model, only had a cursory look, but I think you could've hugely reduced the number of constraints if you had made better use of geometric (the prefered kind) constraints, equality mainly. 330 constraints probably could be 100? Maybe make a thickness to reduce plastic? HTH...

Re: New user analyzing forum provided sketch

3. How are the parameters linked? (I can't see how or where this is done.) Expressions can be used most places values are entered, Best read the wiki link, In this instance I simply gave the values a name and used that to create the link. Very sophisticated scenarios can be created with a little im...

Well done for posting this I'm sure it will benefit many others as well. I'll try to address your points one by one. 1. illogical numbering scheme - - - there are really 2 Sketch #1s Sketch and in fact all Freecad objects as far as i know use programmers numbering which traditionally starts from zer...

Re: GSOC 2020 has been Green Lit! (Voice your opinion and ideas about what to propose for the next gsoc)

I really like the idea of a sophisticated measuring tool I hope this goes ahead, can't code, can test.

Re: Looking to extrude two solids

As the error message points out only single contiguous solids are supported in a body.
You can put each solid in its own body and put the bodies in a part container. It depends on what your end goals are I suppose.

Re: Wanting to 'pad' a part

No that is not correct, you may have many geometries described, but you may only have one level of nesting. In other words a plate with half a dozen holes is fine, because it clear what is solid and what is space, and the outcome of the operation results in a single contiguous solid. Three concentri...

Select extrude in the tree view, scroll down to position in the data tab, click in the value column that contains numbers and a button with an ellipses on will appear. Press this to bring up the placement dialogue, select the apply incremental changes button, play around to your heart's content. pla...

Re: Wanting to 'pad' a part

To save you some learning please accept this file, it is parametric. To change the parameters to suit your needs, select sketch in the tree view, scroll down to data view, expand 'constraints' and then change the dimensions as required.
