Question for kbwbe on a2plus look alike

kbwbe I have overtaken the input screen to your program and I like the result. The screen is yours with a few differences. I am wondering if you are planning to come out with a new version of a2plus soon. If you don’t have one in the works I think I’ll continue with this merge. I have attached the f...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

I need to do better testing and put up a better version in a few days. Here is the better version. In addition to listing the last constraint made it has a dropdown listing the last 15 so you can select and edit them. I also attached a picture showing the Find w label function. To install it extrac...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

-- What already found: in A2P possible to press "Make Duplicate" several times and then Click-click-click- distribute about 6-8 duplicates in the 3D view. Clicking the same button on the on the A2P_More panel - allows only 1 duplicate to make. smiling. Try using the Make Duplicate button on the low...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

My apologies to kbwbe for chopping up his work. I still don’t understand his work, his mind works on a higher level than mine. solving the whole assembly repetitively - takes a lot of time is not acceptable and not needed for details with position fixed. Smiling: This is probably too late to help yo...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

Update for A2plus. I came home and found an error when I tried to fix a floating part. So I fixed it. And I forgot to mention that I added my a2p_solversystem.py file to the the a2plusmore folder. When you solve an assembly there are no popups for the unmoved files, instead it prints a list of the p...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

I’m not quite sure where you’re going with the files you sent they kind of look like the beginning of a SolidWorks assembly file. I meant to put SolidWorks Weldment file, not assembly file. Here is the latest a2plusmore files. The instruction pdf is in the zip file. It seems to be stable and I don'...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

And maybe the more required option would be to disable popup: set multiple constraints without having the "Set / solve " constraint popup. Hi, could you allow multiselect for adding some rules? eg. "add a plane coincident constraint" A direct use case is following: dragchains.png In the properties ...

Re: A2+ - Part reference geometry

In A2+ is there a way to show (in the assembly view) the parts reference geometry eg plane, axis and points I think I understand now, you're looking for the "reference" geometry. Sorry to disappoint you but as far as I know there is no reference geometry in A2plus. When Kbwbe changes a part file in...
