Request for Pad improvement

Postby efyx » Thu Mar 15, 2018 2:24 pm

Please add thickness option. It means when I create open line for example L-shape I can Pad it with a thickness. Also auto fillets with predefinied radius should be possible. It is very usefull when you want create different profiles.

And please add face / shell to pad and other PartDesign features, like extrude, revolve, loft and sweep in the Part workbench.

I don't understand: extrude, revolve, loft and sweep are available in Part and Part Design (with slightly different names).

Loft and Sweep exists in PartDesign and Part and some other tools from other workbenches. So why not use faces as well in PD like most common CAD systems on the market?

ickby was open to allow creation of construction geometry in PD (I consider surfaces as construction geometry in the end goal of getting a solid). He did mention it on the forum.

Problem is, ickby already said he had no time to program for the foreseeable future. DeepSOIC doesn't either (or isn't interested). And nobody else seems interested in picking up PartDesign development. Apart from bug fixing, its development has stalled for almost a year.

So I'm afraid no amount of pinging or rehashing the same things will help change that.

Thank you so much for your answer Normand.
What about to use the clone tool Dolly to clone ickby Stefan?
Four copy please. One for his job, one for his family, one for his house and garden and one for Freecad. :lol:

Ah, I see, seven would be fine, three for Freecad.
