Re: App::link of sketch in PD Body

Unlike body, each solid will not have its own placement, which is crucial so that the features that construct those solids can be freely referenced by other features without requiring a binder or link. In other words, features of solids within the same body all live in the same coordinate system Ha...

Re: App::link of sketch in PD Body

you must be kidding: you're using an assembly workbench to make an assembly, but not using the tools that the workbench is providing, and instead using some personal workflow coming from a workbench made to design single parts. And then you're complaining that things don't go smoothly. it's just an...

Re: App::link of sketch in PD Body

The normal Link overrides the linked object's Placement, which obviously does not work in Part Design use case. If i understand this point correctly, i think there are still valid use cases. The first use case i had in mind was to replace shapebinder for some cases to reduce repetitive work that cr...

Re: App::link of sketch in PD Body

This entire thread sounds like you are having a stroke I already knew you consider yourself a mind reader, good to know you're a doctor as well. It's not a conspiracy against App Link I never alleged any conspiracy. There is a long history behind Part Design, Part Design Next, etc. Going a long way...

Re: Sketcher linked geometry

I'm afraid it is more complicated than that: Appropriate constraints have to be added depending on the type of reference. i'll take your word for it. i was simply looking at it from the perspective that right now, i can have a sketch with externally linked geometry, normal geometry and construction...

Re: App::link of sketch in PD Body

so if the Part Design devs are not interested in taking advantage of link for their own purposes here's what a workaround might look like: a "contraband" container for links. if he had the time and we could agree on a price, i would gladly pay Realthunder to make something look like a sketch but is ...

Re: App::link of sketch in PD Body

link is amazing. if you send a link to console, >>> # Gui.Selection.addSelection('link_amazeballs','Part','Link.') >>> ### Begin command Std_SendToPythonConsole >>> obj = App.getDocument("link_amazeballs").getObject("Link") >>> ### End command Std_SendToPythonConsole >>> obj <App::Link object> >>> i...
