Seems to be changing every two days at the moment.
At work, I have a version a few weeks older on Windows, but also 0.17.
If I move the placement on the body, how do I continue to add features to the body in the new coordinate system? I also need to reference features from the original body.
I have already created the object in OpenSCAD, and I am trying to recreate it in FreeCAD, so I can learn FreeCAD.
The top part is built vertically with its base at [0,0,0] It is then shifted up and tilted back, and the feet are added as a hull between a slice of the bottom of the top piece, and several disks on the x,y plane.
I have the top part built in FreeCAD, but I have been unable to figure out how to shift it, and continue to add the feet to it.
So, yes I can translate and rotate the body, but I cannot put a body inside another body, and I can't add features to the translated and rotated body without them also being translated and rotated the same amount. It is like I am working on a single piece of metal, and half way through the milling, I must remove the part from the vice, move it, and rotate before re-clamping it in the vice and continuing. I can't seem to figure out how to do this in FreeCAD.
