...I think this is what could be implemented as a user made unit.
...well it was what I was thinking about when wrote this post...
The "proportionality" restriction has a "side effect" of helping in using (the non implemented) reduced units on sketches.

Re: Feature Request: Extend equality restriction in the sketcher.

So another feature request was born: Feature request: Appending restriction. At this point, i'd promote the request to expression-powered constraint... ...cool! that would include general cases.. Adding more of these expression-like constraints is not looking productive to me. well, maybe the previ...

Re: Feature Request: Extend equality restriction in the sketcher.

I think you uploaded the wrong file, it doesn't have the promised 1/4 length and thus flips here as well, It was the file I wanted to send. What length do you get when you change the value of totalLength constraint from 200 mm to 20 mm? (I get 5 mm here) Did you recompute the sketch? The sketch see...

Re: Feature request; Reduced Units.

Even if I think there are much important things to fix in FreeCAD, I'd say "why not?". However I'd see something more simple : just a virtual unit (let's call it "uu" as User Unit) that will be a property attached to the document and as such can be set by user to a defined length and used in model....

Re: Feature Request: Inequality restriction in the sketcher

I'm thinking about it sometimes. Inequality constraint may be possible, but its utility is questionable. If in a fully-constrained sketch we have an inequality constraint, it becomes a redundant/conflicting constraint when it kicks in ("kicks in" = when inequality is violated). As many may have not...

Re: Feature Request: Extend equality restriction in the sketcher.

Let's discuss this here a bit further and then write a constructive feature request. Can you give examples where the new proportional constraint would prevent flipping? Reduced unit: As I mentioned in a previous message, this "proportionality" restriction could be used for defining what is called i...

Re: Feature Request: Extend equality restriction in the sketcher.

Can you give examples where the new proportional constraint would prevent flipping? With the attached file aSlightlyDifferentProportionalityTest.FCStd a slightly proportionality test from the one made before with proportionalityTest.FCStd file can done. Modify again the constrained dimension totalL...

Re: Feature Request: Extend equality restriction in the sketcher.

Let's discuss this here a bit further and then write a constructive feature request. Can you give examples where the new proportional constraint would prevent flipping? Lets see if the attached files fulfill the the Idea (hipothesis). Consider first the file equality.FCStd. The fully constrained sk...

...Ah! and the sometimes discussed inequality restrictions would no longer be needed...
I think that flipping sketches would not exist anymore...
That indeed would justify a lot of effort!
What would be the next step(s) for this request to be considered for a possible implementation?
