[Ticket #4681] Allow non solid entities to be linked into Bodies in an automagic way.

Postby Pauvres_honteux » Mon Apr 05, 2021 1:14 pm

I hereby request to allow non solid entities to be linked into Bodies in an automagic way so the user does not need to first create a "link container".

Use case example 1: you have several surfaces outside of the Body which are connected and form a "closed surface" thingie. Now you want this to be made/transformed into a solid inside your Body.

Use case example 2: you have a point on a plane outside of the Body you whish to utilize inside your Body.

Use case example 3: you have a surface outside of the Bodyand now you want to make thickness on/from it inside your Body.

... and so on ...

It would also be nice if the linked geometry could be given an own icon resembling the original geometry with a added "curved arrow" to indicate it originate from somewhere else.

You are rather busy today creating feature requests. But please note that these should be discussed in the forum.
