Re: V0.19 Top Down Assembly Design Using Assembly4--Update #2

Not so silly. Thank you for sharing your file and workflow. I learned so much studying your tree, step-by-step: 1. How to get the master sketch into ASM4 Model by simply assembling it. Avoids the out-of-scope warning I usually get with drag/drop of a carbon copy. 2. Your approach allows you to crea...

[FIXED] TechDraw Section PatHatch option does not work

Hi, It seems that the TechDraw section PatHatch option does not work. In the section cut, there is a possibility to select the "Cut Surface Display", which is either "Hide", "Color", "SvgHatch", or "PatHatch". However, the "PatHatch" pattern hatching won't be displayed even if an existing GeomHatch ...

Re: V0.19 Top Down Assembly Design Using Assembly4--Update #2

I have linked sketches together using LCS's for 3D movement but not sure if that is what you are suggesting. Yes, exactly that. Most of the stuff I do is for a company, so I can't really put anything serious online. However, I just made a silly bare-bones example showing my modeling workflow. Basic...

Re: V0.19 Top Down Assembly Design Using Assembly4--Update #2

No. Not attached, but constrained. Ah, now I understand, that's clever! I've previously attached the lower-level master-sketches to upper-level master-sketch by using LCS:s, which also works, but this method seems to be actually better. If I'm correct, the carbon copies in your method automatically...

Re: V0.19 Top Down Assembly Design Using Assembly4--Update #2 Arbor Press

The inset image is the master for all of the rotating bodies. Details are added to a carbon copy of this sketch to create each body which then becomes another carbon copy 'master' for all of its features. I understand why the first rotating body is made as a carbon copy of this master sketch, as it...

Re: V0.19 Top Down Assembly Design Using Assembly4

Thanks for the great tip. I will try it out next time I run into an master sketch animation problem. BTW your animation of the chain links is very cool. I am glad that I have been able to give at least some small contribution back to the community. :D I've really enjoyed your various explanations a...

Re: [BUG?] Multiple faces do not work with GeomHatch hatching

Sorry for the delay. Time is tight this month. 30ff7fb6e4 should allow multiple face selection for GeomHatch. I was just worried that maybe you didn't notice my post. Thanks for the fix, I just tested it! FreeCAD master 0.19.21992 seems to work flawlessly with your fix, and I noticed no problems wi...

Maybe you didn't see this one Wandererfan? You'll probably have the best knowledge how GeomHatch is supposed to work! :)

Re: V0.19 Top Down Assembly Design Using Assembly4

3. I have generally stopped using the master sketch as the solver to animate the moving bodies. LCS's attached to the master sketch will sometimes jump positions as the master is manipulated over its range of variation. If that happens, the bodies attached to the LCS will also jump. That why it is ...
