Hi!
I'm trying to make a simple frame (not the final object, but a part of it)

As the "plane coincident" constraint make a plain constraint only on the center, I cheated and used the "points coincident" constraint. I think it's a bit overkill, and my question is : is there a way to make the same thing with usual constraints (for example only with "plane constraint" from assembly2)?

Maybe Am I wrong in my view of the project and Assembly3 is "just" a set of tools which will be added to Assembly 2?

<off-topic> Will this be included into 0.18 development releases? What is the status?</off-topic>

One more question ( 0:-) ) is there a way to know if there is still degrees of freedom in the assembly?

BTW for the little thing I'm actually doing, assembly 3 is extremely effective

Could it be a good idea to have a wiki page with the basic operation? Maybe on realthunder's git or in a "sandbox page" on the official wiki ?

Follow the readme doc for how-to
I have already read this. That didn't match what I was talking about. @Rene's response was closer. I was just talking about making more accessible the link Rene pointed to me.

You're welcome.

If you click on Assembly feature and look in the property view. There is a Verbose property in there. Setting it to true will output some solver related DOF information in Report view on solve operation.

You would likely still ask and likely a more experienced users would point you in the right direction. I guess hard to ask for more.
