Can you please update the status for Assembly3

It is now available for testing as part of the Linux AppImage (and I believe DMG) in the current development version pre_0.19 from here: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/rele ... 4.AppImage. That means the Asm3 functions can be tested without the special build from realthunder.

Hello everyone, I am a CAD / CAE technician and I am positively impressed with your work.
I believe that the ASSEMBLY section is fundamental for mechanical design and so far the Assembly 3 project seems to me the most suitable and complete one. Let me just ask you if it is possible for you to implement:
- the possibility to modify the piece directly in the assembly;
- the possibility of making sections directly in the assembly;
- a measuring tool to check the various distances / surfaces / volumes: in case of modifications, make sure not to waste too much time.

I absolutely thank you for your attention.

Hello! I am getting started with assembly in FreeCAD. I am just working on personal projects, but I want to be sure my files are as future-proofed as possible in case I open them again in a few years. I also want to be sure I learn to use whatever is most likely to become the "standard" over time. It sounds like I should try out Assembly3 on 0.19?

Thanks!

We don't know what and how the satndard will be. The most future safe Assembly workbench is probbaly Assembly4, because it doesn't rely very much on external things.
