FW190-A8 1/10th

I've started to model a Focke-Wulf 190-A8 at 1/10th scale, to make an RC plane with it. The fuselage is supposed to be 3D-printed, while the wings should be made with classic wood structure, laser-cut if possible. First, I imported into Inkscape various drawings of scale models, scaled them to the c...

Any idea?
There is a forum for general Help on FreeCAD, your question is not assembly related.

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

There is no python trick to access the sub-sub-assembly variables at all? You can "copy" the value of a variable from a sub-assembly to the assembly, by creating a corresponding variable in the assembly Model, and assigning to it the value of the variable in the sub-assembly: <<totoDoc>>#Variables....

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

Please see attached file. Model_Top-Level-Assy_Tree.pdf Right now I am not understanding how you would do this so will have to think about it. Thank-you. I wouldn't have splitted the sub-assemblies like that. I'd put in a sub-assembly only rigid structures, that don't deform/move. So, the rotor wou...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

I attached a file to demonstrate the issue: master:Vertex7 and master:Vertex8 do exist (verified via Selection View) but I cannot chose them while attaching an LCS. the sketch "master" has only 4 vertices, Vertex7 doesn't exist, not anymore than Vertex8. The reason that LCS_7 doesn't report an erro...

Re: CADCloud and FreeCAD 0.19 Links - Assembly demo

The use case targetted is collaborative design. How can we enhance FreeCAD to help end users around the world to either work on the same parts or reuse the work from somebody else to create a new design. I agree that that's an important use-case, but doesn't a regular repository (SVN or GIT) provid...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

I have a complex assembly that I would like to animate https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=48473&start=50#p439330. As you can see it is easily animated when all moving parts are in the same file [...] I have now broken up that assembly file into several sub-assemblies as you have sugg...

Re: CADCloud and FreeCAD 0.19 Links - Assembly demo

The code is upstreamed into https://github.com/opencomputeproject/CADCloud .... this is still work in progress and proof of concept, but I start to like these new features. reading from https://github.com/opencomputeproject/CADCloud: In any cases your model will be saved on the server side through ...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

What is the corect method on adjusting the relations? Should I edit the parts LCS so that they are offsetted for parts to mate or should I offset stuff in assembly? hum .... not an easy question. The most reliable is to place the LCS where it belongs, with the correct angle, and attach a part direc...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

With both variants I am unable to set the LCS_0 entry to one of the vertices. I can select the vertex but I am not able to select an "Attachment mode" What is it exactly that you are doing ? What buttons are pressed, what menu functions called ? Do you mean LCS-1 (rather than LCS_0) ? If you mean L...
