Thank you very much for the response, next time I'll pay more attention.

In any case, are you foreseeing to make a new APP image with the new upgrade?
Thanks

Yes, sure. I'll try to make a release this month.
Try Assembly3 (latest version 0.8.6) along with my custom build of FreeCAD at here.
And if you like to show your support, you can find the donate button at here.

Please see:

Any reason why renaming objects in the model view in the realthunder's branch of FreeCAD (Assembly3) gets dots replaced by underscores?

Hi,

is there a way to set a sort o "flexiblity" to the assembly items?

This comes from Solidworks on-line help:
By default, when you create a subassembly, it is rigid. Within the parent assembly, the subassembly acts as a single unit and its components do not move relative to each other. However, you can make subassemblies flexible. This allows movement of the individual components of a subassembly within the parent assembly.
An example of the benefit of this function is when you want to move the components of a piston subassembly in a motor assembly. You can move the individual components of the piston while still grouping the components as a subassembly.

Note the following regarding flexible subassemblies:
Mates The mates in a flexible subassembly are solved simultaneously with the mates of the parent assembly. Therefore, moving or rotating a subassembly component does not violate the mates in the subassembly or its parent. A component moves only within its degrees of freedom according to its mates.
Multiple Instances You can insert more than one instance of the subassembly in the same configuration of the parent assembly. You can make some instances rigid and others flexible, and the different instances can have different positions of the subassembly components.
Thanks.

Regards.
