Part design sketch plane correct order: XY, YZ, ZX

Hi. In my opinion, it is needed to modify one of the names of the planes (and its "orientation") one can select when making a sketch. I think that instead of XY, XZ, YZ, the appropriate planes should be XY, YZ and ZX (in this order). If i , j and k are unit vector along X, Y and Z axes respectively,...

Re: Feature request: Alias as optional name in sketch.

Cool TheMarkster! Just for completeness you have to ( :D ) add my requested feature to your macro (or to a new one). They complement each other. Regards import FreeCAD selObj = Gui.Selection.getSelectionEx() for obj in selObj: if not 'Sketcher.SketchObject' in str(type(obj.Object)): continue expr =...

it could be very useful that at the time of imposing any constrain by clicking the little expression icon and getting the value from a spreadsheet cell P.S.: It could be very useful that the alias names could include the space character. automated alias creation: yes.

Re: Macro for Spreadsheet Alias setup and Part Family Generation

This is a great macro, congrats. Suppose one have some simple object parameter values in the same spreadsheet and one uses one column to for object names and subsequent columns for their dimensions. Don't you think it could be very useful to construct the alias names from a combination of the corres...

Re: Macro for Spreadsheet Alias setup and Part Family Generation

Re: Feature request: Quick way to assign reference values.

That's the idea.
When developing a project, this feature would be very useful in combination with the use of the spreadsheet workbench, where the developer could place the variable values previous to the use of any other workbench.
