Re: Test tutorial for Assembly 3 WB

Re: Assembly3: Best way to express multiple configurations?

... Hi, I could not read your file in the Realthunder branch of 11/16/2020 (too many error messages were blocking everything). I managed to open it with the version https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/download/0.19_pre/FreeCAD_0.19.22960-Win-Conda_vc14.x-x86_64.7z (also with error messages)...

Re: Assembly3 preview

How did you solve the question about the need to connect sub-assemblies through their parts? I did a test where a part encapsulated in Sub-Assembly1 has 1 DOF for animation and another part encapsulated in Sub-Assembly2 also has 1 DOF. When inserting Sub-Assembly 1 and 2 in the Overrall Assembly, b...

Re: Assembly3: Best way to express multiple configurations?

Hi,
Sorry, I couldn't find your FreeCAD file to download to your GitLab.
I was thinking of using the step format instead but I can't seem to open the file.

Re: Assembly3 preview

Where is the error in performing this action? Hi, I think the sketch needs to be closed to select an entity from it. So the sketch segment must not be a construction line, otherwise it is no longer visible when the sketch is closed. I would create another sketch in the XZ plane, then either a carbo...

But how did you create that line element?
This is the X reference axis of the body of tri_mount_interface that I dragged into the elements group (I noticed in your 1st sketch that the centers of the two holes were on this axis) :

Re: Assembly 3 Inconsistent Constraints

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. I'm just lost as to what! Hi, I added the X axis which is the support of the holes as an element in tri_mount_interface. (the distance between the 2 centers of the holes gives an over stress) So a PlaneCoincident constraint plus a PointOnLine constraint suffice a...

This is hard problem. The face/wire orientation can't really be trusted with OCC the CAD kernel. It sometimes just decide to flip the orientation for whatever reason.
Thanks, just know it and it's easy to fix with Flip element or Flip part.
