Part-WB add element to compound

Postby HoWil » Sat Jul 22, 2017 5:40 pm

Hello,
Why can't one add new elements to an existing compound in part-wb? This is possible e.g. for the fusion operation.
One can add or remove elements by drag-and-drop to a fusion.
Please see the attached example where I would like to add the 'Sphere' by drag-n-drop to the 'Compound'.
Should I create an issue/feature-request on the tracker?

I haven't found an existing one, and this has been requested a few times on the forum. So, please do create a feature request, then maybe a developer will pick this up. :)

Hi,

Also looking for this feature, I found this thread as well as a previous one here https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?t=11424 referencing another issue created before http://freecadweb.org/tracker/view.php?id=2498.
I cross referenced the issues in their comments in the tracker.
This would be a great feature addition IMO too because compounds make a powerful way of grouping parts but being unable to add/remove members/children is a pain along the design path. Having to explode/delete then re-create them several time is a burden, and this becomes hardly doable when you have a hierarchy of compounds.

Anyway, thanks for all FreeCAD goodness :)

Oh boy, this is so embarrassing... As Jérémie wrote, there was an existing feature request, and I'm the one who created it! :oops:
