Display of a point not attached to the lines outside the sketch.

Post by Dude » Sun Mar 29, 2020 4:41 pm

In general, how to make sure that points that are not at the intersection of two visible lines are displayed outside the sketcher. I need to see these points to place the auxiliary planes. I tried to make points at the intersection with additional visible lines, but you cannot extrude a sketch with extra visible lines.

And another question, the mouse wheel, in addition to turning the page, additionally flips through a menu like this.

And when I leaf through the page, the cursor comes across a menu and starts changing it. It is very inconvenient how you can turn off the parameter change with the mouse wheel.

Here is a way, but it is a hack and would only work in 0.19, and possibly only a very recent build.

An alternative would be to create a second sketch only to be used as the reference, consisting of a visible line segment connected from one point to the other. The circle would be construction mode in that other sketch.

Thanks for the work. I just want to know that this is really impossible to do with default tools. I will wait for more feedback, and try to give a request for such a function. Auxiliary geometry is already implemented, and this feature will give much more functionality.

I see. Points are currently always treated as construction mode geometry. An option to have them either normal mode or construction mode might make sense, but I'm sure this has already been discussed (and probably proposed) many times.

Why don't you add a datum point (PartDesign_Point) or coordinate system? That's the reason datum objects were created, to serve as auxiliary geometry that is common to the entire PartDesign Body, not only to a single sketch.

I can’t snap the auxiliary point in the part design to the sketch points, if the sketch point is not visible at part design. If this is possible in an adequate way, tell me please.

There is already a feature request for this.

Maybe you need a special feature, go into Macros_recipes and Code_snippets, Dialog creation. My macros on Gist.github.

The line is not tied to the sketch, the parameterization is lost. If there is a request for a function, then I will wait.
And the essence is not only in a straight line with a point, but in any sketch geometry that can be use in outside.

You can make a master sketch with a line, attach a datum line, then a datum plane.
