That is really a cool idea, I did not think about it. At least its a cool thing to demo
. Uses outside 3D prints might be a bit more limited, however.

If I understand you right, you avoid
PartDesign because of the holes, but it is in that very workbench what is most advanced in that respect. I admit though that you cannot configure it beyond what is predefined now.
@chrisb if you mean me (and not papyblaise), you got me wrong. Vice versa. I'm almost using PartDesign for everything.
I am trying to understand the Part WB. Why is such a central thing as putting holes into an object missing from the Part WB and nobody every cared to put that in. It would make sense if everybody is using PartDesign, but reading in the forum it seems to me that there are people claiming to not
use PartDesign at all. I wonder how that is possible. I must be missing something.
From what you both said, Part WB does not seem really consistent. I remember very well the first time I tried out FreeCAD. The first thing I wanted to do was this object above. I did a Part:Box and then got stuck. Why can't I put a sketch onto the face of the Part:Box, put in 4 points and select a Hole function dialog pointing to that sketch?
