Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

Here is a demo of updating the part. At the end of the video I show that all of the constraints are still in the assembly.

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

So I'm mixing a2plus objects and regular partdesign objects (the ones with the blue bricks). As far as I've learned it's not possible to mix partdesign objects with a2plus objects, however it would still be valuable to be able to align surfaces of partdesign objects with a2plus objects (even withou...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

it is possible to define rules for "Partdesign Objects" however they're placed outside of the object and cause weird issues (I remember I had those issues also when I started with a2plus). At that stage seems like I've nailed down all my issues. I thought that any object can be assembled in A2+ Par...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

I usually remove the constraints and update the objects. After that I'll re-apply the constraints (because just updating the objects doesn't seem to work properly - or in some cases I'm modifying the objects too much). The problem is if you have a bigger design, there are too many of those popups. ...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

Welcome to FreeCAD Mrx. A2plus does have it's problems. I have tried to overcome some of them with third party programs with some of my ideas working better than others. problem 1: The message of "highlighted parts were not moved" is likely because you tried constraining two parts that are not const...

I just need this is I want to generate it automatically in a macro
Here are some code snippets that will gave you all the information you seek. Most of it will run by copying it to a macro file.

Re: fc info assembly

Do you pay? Gandouzi First, Sorry for being rude. My thought when I posted was it is a lot of programing to create what you posted. I had an idea for reducing the number of broken constraints in A2plus. I just posted a program that I think shows that the concept works but it is not a good program a...

i need to a macro that can give me the total information about the assembly (it's name,volume ,type of constraint enter 2 object ,...)
I am not a programmer but for those who are, I think the question is:
Do you pay?

Re: A2+ Latest try for reducing broken constraints.

My apology to those that tried the first upload. This v2 should load. I have also added some info to the pdf.

Re: Variable length part

I'd like to create a part with a variable length that can be assigned/changed during assembly. Specifically, I'm building a model of a PVC structure, and it would be nice to create a single PVC pipe part that could be assigned different lengths for each copy in the assembly rather than create multi...
