Re: Path : cannot remove a dead geometry.

This is a deep, long-standing and very difficult problem. Search the forum for 'topological naming' and you'll find much about it. Ouch. TOPO, TOPO, TOPO, where art thou topo ... what a pain in the ask! With respect to PATH, its a CRIPPLER from what i can see (lots of revisting models/especially wi...

Re: Assembly3 preview

Once again, you have outdone yourself! Thank you.
Works here on ubuntu-Xenial 16.04 LTS ( ver. FreeCAD-asm3-Conda-Py3Qt5-20190608.glibc2.12-x86_64.AppImage).
Very nice, my friend!
