Can I download the sources of this assembly (1st example : using sub-object shape binder) somewhere?
Hello,
I just put a link to the source files in .7z (right click and choose save as ...) on

Tell me if you have any problems.

Thank you!
Still can't open Asm3GuidedCart :( Image
Let's see when the check for the graph loop appeared ...

+        msg += e.what();

     }
It just can't be for you to use a version younger than July 5th. Somewhere I screwed up. :(

I have just found this topic. It looks like we are on the same mission. I want to make FreeCAD the default CAD System for small businesses and education. What is your goal?

My goal is simple: to bring some knowledge and a little methodology to those who do not always know where to start.
My approach is obviously not the only one.
I developed and used it for years with Catia and SolidWorks as a teacher with beginners, and it worked well.
FreeCAD was not yet mature enough when I retired.
So now I'm doing what I can to make the hard work of the programmers useful to as many people as possible.

Publicizing the site to people who may be interested and hearing their opinions would be good!

Hello from charente-maritime. I really liked the video module for arch, the walls of variable thickness. You are a great help for people like me who spend hours repeating procedures that do not work because the versions may evolve but also out of lack of habit of all the subtleties not so user-friendly of freecad (and linux?). I will study all your videos by asking for those that target the arch. I'm already stumbling on the first of the roofs: a difficult point at the time of the carbon copy of the sketch of the walls will ask me a little more time and then it will be the complex roofs then the windows etc.
already thanks to you: https://sites.google.com/site/hoteldeme ... freecad019

Hi!
Maybe you know my little youtube channel "flowwies corner" that focuses on CAD tutorials.
I think I have built a nice number of viewers and I could suggest you to introduce your website to my viewers.
I thought about presenting your website and following the tutorials you give on the website in my videos like a "lets try these tutorials and build the demo parts myself live on video". of course I will show your site and give the correct attribution and sources to your website.
Drop me a message if you're interested. I will not do anything without your permission.

à bientôt
Florian
