Yes, WOW...

but where we can found BoxCreator???
Now you can find it at https://github.com/chbergmann/FreeCAD-m ... ctCreation
This location may be deleted if the macro gets merged into the official repository.

Box Creator Script

Postby blue0cean » Tue Jun 23, 2020 12:05 am

Is it possible to set the Box Creator Script so that it does not close automatically after the box has been created so that, for example, the partition walls can still be made?
Or that the last values are retained when opening?

This is a good suggestion. Update the boxcreator macro. The dialog will now stay open after clicking Create box.

Hi Christi,

I was happy to find this macro, unfortunetly it is not available under the addon manager/macros. I've tried to install it manual from depository but macro was not working.

Im using 0.19, 23141(git)

Thank you!

There is something wrong with your FreeCAD installation. It is working with 0.19 23258.
Please make sure that your macro directory exists and is accessible (see menu Macro -> Macros... bottom line).

Has this been removed from the Macro Add-ons in v0.19-24267?
I don't see it in the list of add-on macros anymore.

It looks AMAZING and I'm super excited about using it! I hope there's a way to in this version.

Thanks so much!

It is available here. Did you switch from the workbenches tab to the macros in AddonManager?

Here is a nice website for creating 2D outlines for many different kind of boxes. Unfortunately, this does not integrate into FreeCAD.
