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

...IMHO, it is question of opinions... Well, since this is probably the first time we see someone confused about plane designations in probably more than 5 years,... Hehehe, It seems a bit funny to me that you have interpreted this... For sure there is no confusion at all, just the wishes that othe...

Re: Axonometric view. Why this octant of the space?

Wouldn't it be more comfortable to see the first octant (+X, +Y, +Z axes) instead of that? Define "more comfortable". How could it possibly be "more comfortable"? Quite bluntly, this is meaningless. If memory serves me correct, it's some standard. And it's not a universal standard. It's not a stand...

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

In FreeCAD there is the acronym CAD for Computer-Aided Design. CAD software is overwhelmingly used by designers, architects and engineers. Not by mathematicians. I want to use CAD software, not math software. Well, FreeCAD is a very good software with HUGE potentials. Maybe in its beginnings the ac...

Re: Axonometric view. Why this octant of the space?

https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases The mavicube is not part of official FreeCAD version yet... If so, is there any link for downloading a binary of that FreeCAD version, or it has to be compiled? It's not in 0.17, it's in development version 0.18. Binaries here: https://github.com/FreeCAD/...

Ok. Thank you.
Please, correct me:

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

Not this again. :roll: All CAD programs, and I mean ALL use the XY, XZ and YZ denominations. It is not question of denominations, it is question of the effect of using some kind of "levogyre" coordinate system when extruding... By the way, sometimes paradigms could be revised and adjusted if needed...

Click a corner of navigation cube to get into any axo view you want.


If memory serves me correct, it's some standard. And it's not a universal standard.
I am sorry, but what is it called "navigation cube"?

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

Now if we change to ZX, the sketch would end up in a very unnatural orientation. Well... "very unnatural orientation"... It is question of opinions (in my opinion :) ) I have to put on a balance "unnatural orientation" and and "extruding to a negative axis orientation"... It would be good to have t...

Axonometric view. Why this octant of the space?

Just wondering...
In FreeCAD, when setting axonometric view, one "sees" the fourth octant of the space (+X, -Y, +Z axes). Wouldn't it be more comfortable to see the first octant (+X, +Y, +Z axes) instead of that?
