Testing FreeCADLink for topo errors

I use this test model (pic) to test for topological naming testing. The model is built attaching every sketch to a face. It's built like this; block on the XY plane, hexagon attached to the side, attach 3 shapes to the top hexagon faces. Then I use two different tests: 1) Open the first sketch and a...

Re: Mending half circle to half elipsoid

Re: Question about Sketcher attachment

My thoughts on the two buttons has basis in design of the program. We want to know the users intention; are they wanting to attach a sketch to a face so you can pop a hole in it or are they creating a sketch that might turn into a post next to the face (you selected).
