I have a small question. I was collecting some documentation on the assembly workbenches to place on the wiki, so I was wondering if there was a single A2plus tutorial that you can consider a reference tutorial for learning to use this workbench.

It seems some users have prepared tutorials for Assembly3, and Zolko has written tutorials for Assembly4, so I was wondering if there is a basic, everybody-must-know tutorial for A2plus.

There isn't one within this form.

In case of help requests, i usually provide these two links:

1) Documentation, which is always up to date: https://freecadweb.org/wiki/A2plus_Workbench
2) A video with the basic A2plus workflow, the gripper assembly tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMxcQ5tssWk

I think i will prepare a basic tutorial including all necessary parts at Github next time.

phpBB [video]

This is cool but the only thing that is cringe-worthy is the amount of superfluous mouse clicks and dragging are employed by the user. Notice how the Constraint dialog keeps getting moved by the user.
