Re: Custom toolbar items activation

All I know is that I asked the same question previously and was given this answer (though I can't seem to find that thread now). I know that one of the workbenches I had to autoload was Draft. I don't know if this changed at some point previously. You may need to run a macro to load the workbenches...

Re: Custom toolbar items activation

Use Tools->Addon Manager to add the Autoload wB and restart FreeCAD. Then go to Accessories->Autoload... and check all of the workbenches from which you added commands. This will cause FreeCAD to load all of the workbenches on startup. Startup may take a bit longer but your custom toolbar will work.

Re: Exporting Multiple Meshes to one STL...

This is odd. I have no problems exporting multiple objects in a single STL file and Cura opens it and shows the objects spaced as I had them in FreeCAD. I've actually been doing this for quite a while. I simply select the objects and then do File->Export as an STL file. I've done this with multiple ...

Re: [Solved] Re: Transform Tool for an App Link

I think this is a quirk of how FreeCad treats different kinds of solids. Without being familiar with the internals I can't say more... maybe one of the devs can comment... When I added the applink to the "Body" of the Part instead of the lower-layer "Fillet" object then the "Transform" option appea...

Re: Just a bit confused about terminology now

In your test2.FCStd, you have two separate bodies. The restriction is that each body must be a contiguous solid.

Re: how to rotate parts over more than one axis???

The following method worked for me: Go to Edit -> Placement Under Rotation group box, select "Euler angles (XY'Z")" Under Rotation group box, set the "Pitch", "Roll", "Yaw" rotation angles' values correspondingly to the required ones over the XYZ axis. Just FYI, in 0.19, these change to "Around x-a...
