[Annoucement] ArchWall support Multiple Width

Postby paullee » Sun Jul 14, 2019 12:54 am

[EDIT] Latest change
- Sketch with multiple numbers of wires is supported
- And conceiving usecase of building only 1 Wall on a Sketch as layout plan
[EDIT]

Following discussion in below thread, the feature to support ArchWall to have multiple width is accepted.
https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=36772

The concept is simple, example workflow as below:-

  1. Use Draft Wire to outline the series of connecting Wall with different width
  2. Create a Wall based on the Wire
  3. Click 'OverrideWidth' in Property Panel
  4. Enter the figures of width for each segment following the order of Wire
  5. Done
Other Remarks:-
  1. You may note that it may be easier if you have the Wire alignment to either Left or Right of the Wall
    - all depends on what dimensions you have for your walls
    - whether building connecting walls on 1 wire is helpful depends on the layout and advance planning
  2. The classic Width input is overridden apparently when OverrideWidth is used
  3. When a figure in OverrideWidth is 0, the 1st figure in OverrideWidth would be used - less repeated input if possible
  4. - if 1st figure in OverrideWdth is 0, it will fallback to use figure in Width
  5. Using Sketch is similar, but watch the 'order' of the edge, 'connect' all edge in same direction ( as Sketcher 'construct' the Wire taking into account of edge direction )

Example of model if Multiple Width is not used
Wires needs some gaps / overlapping somehow

Ok, it should now support Sketch which resulted in multiple numbers of wires.
- just as previous, input list of figures in OverrideWidth

And conceiving usecase ...
- of using Sketch as layout plan
- Just 1 ArchWall on the Sketch
- set widths of different width as desired

If there are a numbers of walls with different Width in 1 Wall Object, which is based on 1 Sketch Object...

is it desirable to edit width of each wall segment with GUI?
