I couldn't figure out how do I place a pad at a specific place.
Regarding the attached screenshot, I wanted to move the highlight pad in the x axis. I've also tried to create a new body to sketch this pad in, but couldn't create an edge link in the sketch, to the exiting body sketches.
I've also attached the FreeCAD project.
That worked, because I changed the Z axis value, in contrast to the previous attempt, which I changed the X axis . I understand now that the attachment offset axis are relative to the sketch and not absolute, that’s a bit confusing.
I had another look at this model, and have some comments:
- Your Sketch contains redundancies: symmetry implies here the horizontal constraints. Usually you should remove the latter.
- I attached a DatumPlane to the sketch at the appropriate edge, this makes the offset obsolete
- I had to move the sketch to be aligned with the box again - and now you have to delete the symmetry anyway.
- I reversed the Pad in the attached example, that may be wrong.
