I don't see at the moment the benefit of switching workbenches. Why don't you model the complete nut in one body?

This is the problem, CompSolids are not available in the PartDesign Workbench. So i have to swich to the Part Worckbench (and mix it). And the Parts i make are much easier to construct in PartDesign (mechanical engineering).

It's simple: PartDesign does not support multiple solids. There is nobody willing to work on this. It might take a long time (years possibly) before that changes.

Here are some explanations on the subject, you'll need to use a translation service to translate it from German. https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 40#p198094
