I'm really struggling to get A2Plus workbench to align two bodies using https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/A2plus_ ... cular_Edge
What I did is this: I created a new file using Part Design, called sub_drawing.fcstd. I created a body using a sketch of a simple rectangle, and created a pad of that. Then I added a sketch to a plane of that block, and a sketch of a circle, and made a pocket of that. Then I saved that file.
I then created a new documetn called main_drawing.fcstd and did something similar as above, but with different dimensions for the block and the pocket and saved it.
Then I used the "add a part from an external file" inside A2Plus to add the sub_drawing body into the main_drawing and that worked.
Then is when the problems started: I then selected the edge of the pocket in both bodies using the CTRL-left-mouse button which shows this:
Then clicked the addCircular edge constraint (https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/A2plus_ ... cular_Edge) and saw this:
Then I clicked the Flip Direction button hoping that it would flip one of the parts over so that the two holes are in alignment, but instead it moved one of the parts way off in the distance like this:
What did I do wrong here? Shouldn't Flip Direction do that? Clicking the Flip Direction button again does not do anything at all.
Find attached a .tar.gz file containing a subdirectory that contains both FreeCAD document files.
