Re: LinkTransform creates link at the wrong position

@realthunder, do you see a way to extend the LinkTransform setting so that also links to objects in App::Part will appear at the same position? I I think an additional option "preserve global position" could be added. When used, it ass the placement of the App::Part container to the transformed link.

Re: LinkTransform creates link at the wrong position

No doubt realthunder will advise if I have miss understood something. :) But If my understanding is correct then this is intended behaviour. But then I have a problem. My use case is this: I work a lot with assembly 4 files. They work this way that the different parts are put into a Std_Part contai...

A design flaw IMO that has been introduced with the merge of the Link branch. This is an annoying behevaiour that must be properly fixed in the future.
Thank you.
So I invite realthunder to have a look.

Re: PR #4074 The section cut feature

But I am not sure if performing a boolean operation is the right way to go anyway. Have you ever tried it with one of the huge STEP models with a size of 100MB or more? It is a very valid question if my cutting approach is the right way. I thought about this a lot and in the end I decided to collec...

Re: PR #4074 The section cut feature

What are you doing? I told you twice that the core system must not depend on any application module. Hi Werner, I read your posts and understood it. As I wrote, for the first unveiling, I wanted to demonstrate that and how the cutting feature works. I understand that the code depends in Part and th...

So if it is persistent, how does it show in the feature tree? Like a boolean cut?
Yes, it appears as boolean cut. As I wrote you can decide to keep it in the tree when closing the dialog or not.

why does App::Part need to be recomputed on changing visibility

I noticed a behavior I don't understand when working with App::Part: - only change the visibility of one of its members result: the App::Part is marked for recomputation What is the reason for this? I mean no other object needs to be recomputed when one of its childs has made invisible. For example ...

Re: PR #xxxx The section cut feature

Advantages The main feature is clearly to see what is happening in different sections of your parts/assemblies. But since the result is a Part Cut object, you can for example create a technical drawing out of it to get some additional dimensions: ttt.png As you can see the drawings can contain more...

PR #4074 The section cut feature

(This is a longer description that I must split to several posts (to show more than 4 files).) Motivation I had to present my work in an assembly. During the meeting the project partners requested to have a cut section view of my assembly in order to understand and discuss design details. So I used ...
