Re: [bug/feature request] reasonable behavior for placement of Part Design clones

You cannot change the object itself, but isn't that what cloning is all about? Well not always. There are cases where you want a base model and some small variants. You can use such a clone in further Part operations such as cut or union like any other Part object as well. So the Draft clones are "...

Re: [bug/feature request] reasonable behavior for placement of Part Design clones

As an update to this issue, Although the Draft Workbench's clone doesn't suffer the placement issue of the Part Design Workbench, one caveat should be that the clones are not editable in Part WorkBench anymore. 😩

Re: Why FreeCAD has two versions 0.18.3 and 0.18.16131 for the same release?

This is an issue with repology's algorithm. To tweak it you need submit a PR to https://github.com/repology/repology-rules per https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.18.3 0.18.3 is r16131 repology just parses what is already in the repository's database. It would be probably true if you ...

Why FreeCAD has two versions 0.18.3 and 0.18.16131 for the same release?

I was looking at the Repology search results for FreeCAD when I realized that it considers the Chocolatey package 0.18.16131 as outdated. While Scoop and Just-install offer a higher version of 0.18.3. But then from this page , I realized these two are actually the same release. Is there any reason w...

How to embed an external media into the wiki?

I want to add some of the Repology badges to the FreeCAD Wiki, but I can't. As this page explains, apparently the $wgAllowExternalImages needs to be enabled. I have no idea what it is and how it works. I would appreciate it if you could help me know. P.S. I know I have to upload images here but then...

Re: Basic usability issue - object cloning

As others have mentioned dit is difficult to understand what you exactly want, but I think you might need Part Workbenche's simple copy. It is an independent copy/clone without the internal guts of the original object.

Re: [bug/feature request] reasonable behavior for placement of Part Design clones

That's what cloning is mostly all about: Follow most attributes of the master but have an own Placement. You may try the new Link objects. I think I did not explain my problem properly. Let's compare the Part Design and Draft cloning tools. Both create a dependant clone (which is what I need). This...

Re: [bug/feature request] reasonable behavior for placement of Part Design clones

I just realized that the Draft workbench clone is actually showing the right/reasonable behavior. basically, in Part Design, the clone tool creates a new "clone" but sets the placement of the cloned part to all zero. As if the part was sketched on a different datum plane. But the Draft workbench clo...

Re: [bug/feature request] reasonable behavior for placement of Part Design clones

another approach would be to use datum planes and sketches to place your object in the right place within the container, instead of initiating everything on the default Cartesian planes at the origin and then later adjust placement.
