Re: Assembly3, A2plus, Assembly4? Get united!

I think that what really matters is not so much the functions of an assembly workbench, but the data structure representing the assembly . Good point. I am thinking about three simple, basic data structures: - Design Element, implemented by Bodies, Solids, and other objects - Container for design e...

I don't mind where these parts live, but I find it rather appealing to have direct access to standard parts during assembly.
:) This is why I fell instantly in love with Links!

Re: Assembly3, A2plus, Assembly4? Get united!

What i also would like to see, if a WB like Fasteners or Bolts would be part of the Assembly WB... A Fastener you need only if you puts different parts togehther, what an asm WB is made for. I consider fasteners as an ordinary Body, Part, or Assembly, so I suggest to move fasteners into the library...

Re: Assembly3 preview

It's still your last pre-compiled preview version 0.10.2 2019.07.03. I didn't have the patience to build from the GitHub repo. Before you start debugging, please hold for a while, I am investigating further from the user perspective. Seems that the assembly container is broken. Moving the links to a...

Re: Assembly3, A2plus, Assembly4? Get united!

Then we must diskuss over a human / machine interface... The approach to A2 + is very handy and clear, as even huge drawings are easy to handle because you can go through the data structure quickly and easily. You can also integrate data sheets and easily generate bills of material ... I've found t...

Re: Assembly3, A2plus, Assembly4? Get united!

Other WB's have also problems with TopoNaming. I think this should be the first point of all of the todolists :-) Zolko's LCS idea? Realthunder's named mating interfaces idea ("elements")? Currently I try to reference Sketch elements instead of generated vertices, edges and planes. I can live with ...

Re: Assembly3, A2plus, Assembly4? Get united!

… So far, the master sketch approach works quite well for me especially for articulating mechanisms. the master sketch approach is also what I use with Assembly4 … It's quite exactly what kisolre does, except that he places clones of parts (or bodies) in the same file, whereas in Assembly4 the "clo...

Re: Assembly3, A2plus, Assembly4? Get united!

Yes, this sounds familiar. Do you have some code so I can have a look ? On the property page, Link Placement > Position > (y, z) > expression: (Sketch001.Constraints.XBTD + Sketch102.Constraints.D4) / 2 * cos(30) -(Sketch001.Constraints.XBTD + Sketch102.Constraints.D4) / 2 * sin(30) Positions a sub...

Re: Assembly3, A2plus, Assembly4? Get united!

It is all about use cases and users. We all want assembly workbench but actually manage to do our projects without one. Some can actually create one but do they need it in the long run? I vote for a "Yes" here, because I want to heavily re-use simple Bodies without copying them (keeps the memory fo...

You may be right, yet I hope that a common base can be found on top of which we may have different flavours.
Agreed.
