Re: Most important fundamental limitations of freecad

Yes indeed. To brake it down: Tool to add local coordinate systems at will. Reference point for Draft Polar Array.

Re: How to set the centre of a Polar Array?

Based on discussion here maybe it would make sense to add reference center point to Draft Polar Array for easy manipulation in 3D space for scenarios where Polar Array has no obvious selectable reference point: http://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10945 BUT about your specific question: I...

Re: Most important fundamental limitations of freecad

But for the coordinates i want to show you a concrete case. You Open the file and see if you can create, with facility, radial holes around the hat. This is been said to me! And at this point i have had problems. I have moved the hat, i have done the radial holes and i have put the hat in its posit...

Re: 3D Printer Parts

However, it is still lacking because I did no editing nor did I prepare ahead of time. That would be a lot of work for just a thousand views or so. For me to have the motivation to put that much effort into it, then I want a consistent 10,000 views or more for each video I make. So if I get that ma...

Re: python console

You input commands in it and you can edit commands before inserting them. It's not an text editor but you can create macro:

Macro -> Macros... -> Create

This is text editor and you can edit text in it.

Re: Most important fundamental limitations of freecad

Plus as said we will be able to assemble parts in 3D space in the way other systems are doing it (for example axial relations)!
That is other mid to high-end professional CAD systems to be exact. ;)

Re: making a spring with hooks on the extremes, or how to join paths for a single sweep.

but then the Sweep had some portions missing
You can change/control that with changing Transition property. I am not sure what is the exact difference between provided 3 modes as FreeCAD wiki does not mention that (tangency maybe).

Re: this is my third day using freecad

Images or better .fcstd file with description what you are after will probably do. Without that not much can be said.

Re: What is the best way/right workbench to use to make a shoe?

For this task combination of PartDesign, Part and Draft workbenches for sure. On the first look i see final product as Assembly of few Parts. Some parts could probably be made in a way they could be modified with parametric relations if needed. And some parts would probably have to be (partially) re...

Re: Most important fundamental limitations of freecad

In fact, as i said, the problem comes when you have to work in other way (for example on an existing drawing). The parts that we do not know, are very difficult to modify with Freecad (differently from other systems) for that i have said up. I think that the problem is the almost impossibility to g...
