Fasteners workbench based on screw-maker

Post by shaise »

Hi All!

I have created a small workbench wrapper to ulrich1a's screw-maker macro. This workbench simplify usage of fastener creation, and also makes it parametric and attachable to other parts. Hopefully in the future more fastener types will be added such as press-nuts, stand-offs and studs.

Installation files and Instructions can be found here: http://theseger.com/projects/2015/06/fa ... r-freecad/
This website will always have the latest version.

Source code on github: https://github.com/shaise/FreeCAD_FastenersWB

Have fun!

Will test it in the future but just at looking at the image it looks nice.

Did a few tests and it works good. Will use it occasionally for sure.

P.S. To be able to open and work with saved .fcstd file (to have added elements from this workbench included) user needs to install this module first.

Great!
Does pluginloader automatically keep track for new versions or do I need to notify you whenever I update the workbench?

Nice!!

It seems that you are picking up the jewels from the macros and making them into a way for users to access them simply !!

Ulrich1a does great macros!! :)

Hehe! :lol:
That's what happens when you copy paste code... it is now fixed on github.
