And the reverse of that, which happens to me. "Please make my_favouite_feature be usable outside of PartDesign".

We would need to skip some of the solids, and this would than be the same result as the current available booleans.
I see your point . Nevertheless, I will stick to my mixed PDN-Part-wb workflow since it is not possible to use this functionality in PDN .
Interesting.... but than why can I add an BooleanFragment from Part-Wb to a PDN-Body? BR,
I can imagine that when using multiple bodies it could be possible in some way...triplus wrote: ↑Mon Jul 31, 2017 11:43 amTo be honest i do expect questions like this emerging often after FreeCAD 0.17 will be released. Please add "my favorite FreeCAD command" to the PD workflow.
P.S. Sooner or latter this will be tackled in some sensible way (but highly likely not for FreeCAD 0.17).
You cant, as said it is not a valid operation in PartDesign. And you found the solution: just use it on the bodies. this is what you actually want.Interesting.... but than why can I add an BooleanFragment from Part-Wb to a PDN-Body?
I guess a little patience goes a long way. And the truth is we will likely need some of that. And therefore we will first give FreeCAD 0.17 a fighting chance and just figure out the rest along the way.
