Re: More helpful "need active body" message

I'm a little like Gene in respect of the fact that I don't really care about this much, however I am very pleased that you care enough to make this change.

I hope this leads you to make other contributions....

Re: Optimizing a FSCtd file for PATH

Re: Processing speed

2) I have never tried this but for PartDesign (depending on what you need to work on) you could find some of your more complex Bodies and set the Tip to an early feature, this is kind of like setting a lite-feature in other CAD. It should increase speed because there are less calculations to be don...

Re: Is it possible to make a cut of a body with a compound

Try 'RunBopCheck'.......
