Sketcher Feature request

Postby r-frank » Mon Apr 06, 2015 5:17 pm

Hello.

Not sure if this has been discussed before.
At least a search on the Bug Tracker turned up with no results.

I would like to have two features added to the sketcher:
- Like the "Trim Edge"-Tool I would like to have and "Extend to Line"-Tool.
You select the line to serve as boundary, you select the "Extend to Line"-Tool and click on a line to be extended
until it reaches the boundary line. Throws an error when not possible.

- Like the "Fillet Edge"-Tool I would like to have a "Chamfer Edge"-Tool. Chamfer could be defined by length and angle
or by two lengths or like the "Fillet Edge"-Tool by clicking at two points.

Thoughts/Comments ?

This seems like issue #1187 from oldestfox; I think it could be quite handy.

Thanks for mentioning bejant.
I did not find it because I was looking for issues with project-label "sketcher", but this one
has "freecad".
I'll add a note with link to this discussion.
Perhaps an admin for the bug tracker would be so kind to change (if possible) the project label of the issue ?

For the Chamfer Edge Tool request I will add a new Feature request.
Perhaps one of the programmers will pick it up.
Done. Issue 2052.

Hi r-frank, bejant,
I've submitted a prototype version for 'extend to line' that works for lines and circular arcs: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/774

Can you let me know if this meets expectations?
Thanks!
