[3092] Rescaling sketch at first dimensional constraint

Postby PaFe » Wed Jun 21, 2017 12:58 pm

Hello everyone! In some other CADs there is quite a good feature that consists in rescaling all the sketch keeping the same proportions when adding the first dimensional contraint. Other dimensions are still uncostrainted, only rescaled. This is very useful because the drawer, drawing the very first sketch of a part, usually doesn't care about dimensioning but only about proportions of a shape. If the first dimensions of the uncostrainted sketch are very different from the final constrainted ones, the first dimensional constraint will "explode" all the sketch. The feature is to avoid this. Is it possible to add something similar in Freecad?

EDIT: Here it is in the bug tracker https://freecadweb.org/tracker/view.php?id=3092

It is certainly possible. Fill in a feature request for the project "sketcher". You may get lucky!! :)
