Re: Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

@chrisb Don't know if this is helpful or not, but I've noticed the mismatch in constraint display seems to happen after I have deleted some pieces of a sketch and added new ones. Unfortunately, I haven't noticed exactly when it happens. But maybe something like deleting one arc, inserting a guide li...

Re: Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

Please note than in 0.19 there is a new tool to activate and deactivate constraints, Sketcher_ToggleActiveConstraint . I noticed that in the docs, thanks. Constraints are not hidden. They are moved to another virtual space and you can switch between the two spaces so you can have two visual sets of...

Re: Links go out of the allowed scope

Thanks. It was unclear to me what the difference was between the ExternalGeometry tool in Sketcher and the ShapeBinder in PartDesign. If I have it right: ExternalGeometry makes items in the same body available for use in Sketcher ShapeBinder inserts an item in another body, which may then be made av...

Re: Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

In the attached file: 1. Open the sketch in Sketcher WB 2. Scroll down to constraint labelled "UpperGuideSlopLines" 3. Click on it and notice where the two constraint texts are 4. On the right hand constraint, note the "UprRtSlopInLineWithUprRtGuide" constraint label above it 5. Click the "UpperGuid...

Do you hava an example for this?
Yes, but it's rather complex. I will try to cut it down to something tolerable.

Links go out of the allowed scope

I have multiple bodies in the same part, and one sketch has a constraint to a line in a sketch in a different part. This seems to be causing a "Links go out of the allowed scope" warning. The link was created in Sketcher WB using the "Create an edge linked to an external geometry" tool; this is the ...

Re: Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

Ah, thanks. I thought it might do something like that or deactivate them but apparently it doesn't always work. For example, coincidence constraints aren't visible, and turning one off and on doesn't make it visible. That's unfortunate because it makes it difficult to identify which is which unless ...

Sketcher Constraints checkbox -- What does it do?

Can someone explain or point me to what the check-box to the left of each constraint in the Sketcher Constraints is for? I can't find it described anywhere.

spreadsheet comments

Is there any way to make a field in a spreadsheet be a comment? I know you can type plain text into a field, but the entire model is recomputed when you do so, or when you change the text. I find it helpful to add explanatory comments to fields, and it would speed things up a whole lot if these coul...
