On the page that you explain about constraints and the relationship with DOF, can you make available on the page the files of the existing objects in the explanatory animation?
Thank you for your comments.


The files link can be found here:

The file is in 7z format: you must therefore right click then "Save the target of the link"

Thought I would give ASM3 another try, I can't populate my second screen with views like I can in std FreeCAD. I can drag the view window to the second monitor but when I release the mouse the view window pops back to the main window. Also when I drag the view to the second window there is a blue bar that occurs on the side of the main window, almost like the program is thinking of docking.

I do have a work around, I can set up the views in std FreeCAD and then go into ASM3 and everything looks good, just can't move the views too much.

I didn't realize that the animation files are on this page. It was a lack of attention.
Thanks for the feedback.

Is there a way to stop the tree selection changing the object highlighted, in front, semi-transparent? I just want to see what is selected.
Pic, unselected on the left and selected on the right.

[Solved] Found Preferences-Display-Draw Styles, there are some selection options.

Realthunder, I experienced a repeatable crash with Assembly3, posted it here to avoid polluting this thread. I wonder if you saw that and if it's really Assembly3's fault or Freecad's fault

Hello Realthunder,
I'm trying to get the best out of your animated gifs, but since I'm not a "brain fast", I have two problems (that's not a complaint, I admire your work):
1- it is difficult to spot the start of the animation;
2- I don't know how to adjust the speed, or how to pause (unless there is a program to master the reading of gifs that I do not know).


By dint of searching, I finally found a way to turn your gifs into videos, and that changes everything for me. I was finally able to understand all your Asm3 and PartDesign improvements: fantastic!

For users of your work,
I simply suggest in this post to share these videos for those like me who can't follow. Do not hesitate to ask me.

Hello RealThunder. Sorry to bother you here but I'm having an issue with your latest release. If I have an assembly with linked subassemblies/files ; right click in the tree -> link actions -> go to linked object(S, G) does nothing. It does not open the file with the linked assembly. If I close the main file, the linked assembly will pop up in the place of the main file tab but there is no way I can visualize it whitbought closing the master one. Can anyone reproduce?

If I understand what you mean correctly, I can't reproduce. That works fine here AFAIK:

For me it doesn't work on previously saved files with external dependencies. It jumps to the linked object if the dependency is internal to the file(one file for components and assembly) but it won't open the external file if the dependency is saved separately . At the end of the video you can even see some residual file left from my previous tests with external links assemblies (the landing gear)

Edit: I figured out that I can open external subassemblies by right click in the tree -> activate document but still (S, G) should work. It is so handy when one want's to make changes to an external file.

To make it work, please enable 'View -> TreeView options -> Sync view'. The 'Go to linked object' is internally named as 'SelectLinkedObject', because it just makes a selection. It depends on the tree view to decide what to do. If you have 'TreeView options -> Sync selection', then it will expand the tree and scroll to that item. However, you have 'TreeView options -> Single document' enabled, so the non-active document is hidden, and hence the tree view won't scroll. And tree view will auto switch to the view of the selected object (regardless of 'Sync selection' or 'Single document') ONLY if 'Sync view' is enabled.

In short, I recommend enable 'TreeView options -> Collapse/Expand' And 'Sync view', if you are working on multi-document projects.
Try Assembly3 (latest version 0.11) along with my custom build of FreeCAD at here.
