Re: How to create a Sphere from a Sketch in Part Design?

...Is there a resource that explains this self-intersection concept in some detail? No. It's magic. If you really want to know, you have to look at the extensive source code of the OpenCASCADE Technology kernel, which is what FreeCAD uses internally to produce the shapes. As a simple rule, OCCT doe...

Re: Differences Part Container and PartDesign:Body Container

...does Freecad really still need PartWB to exist by default? Simply asking the question for debate, i don't have yet an informed opinion on the matter. The first workbench that was created in FreeCAD was the Part Workbench . Why? Because it is a basic layer that exposes the functions of the underl...

Re: Draft Workbench - how do I set camera position?

... I've seen this kind of thing happen with other visualization libraries, in the past it's been an issue with z-buffering, but I don't know if that's the cause here. I'm using Gentoo, which builds packages from source. Moreover, FreeCAD isn't in the main tree, so I am using a "custom" package fro...

Is there some other way of creating a Sphere directly from a Sketch in the Part Design workbench?

Re: Draft Workbench - how do I set camera position?

... You can see that the face which becomes visible is at z = 2.6 m. (The other face that is always visible is at z = 2.3 m, so I'm guessing that the camera plane is at z = 2.5 m.)... The camera is not at 2.5 m. Simply put, this is a rendering issue with the 3D view (or Qt or Coin3D or OpenGL or yo...

Re: Differences Part Container and PartDesign:Body Container

In PD WB you need to sketch, ... In Part WB you get the finished box in 1. click,... In PartDesign Workbench you don't require a sketch. You can use sketches for maximum control, but there are also primitives, like PartDesign AdditiveBox . PartDesign Body has existed since 0.17, so it is a well est...
