Should the Shapebinder Trace support be 'True' by default

In my work flow I always want the Shapebinder Trace support set True, I finally gave up and added this to my macro to do it automatically. Can someone write a few lines of why someone would want this False. It's kind of a sneaky thing, you can model all day long but when you go the move your objects...

Re: Feature Proposition: F9 command to Recompute Object

There is also a right click on the tree document and "skip recomputes".

Re: New property, storing a sketch name, can that name change?

Roy_043, that works.

I used "App::PropertyLinkChild"

This works across Body and Part boundaries which is what I wanted. If the targeted Body object is deleted then the LinkChild data will be invalid and the object Link is removed, leaving a blank Property, perfect!

Thank you.

I looked here and found this list: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?p=316906#p316906 I'm always two steps behind, I'm guessing that if I use the correct Property type FreeCAD will change all the names for me as I...

New property, storing a sketch name, can that name change?

If I create a new property and then insert the text "Sketch003" targeting a sketch, can that reference later be invalid. I notice that when I bring a new Body into a existing model there can be changes to the sketch names. This makes since because you can't have two "sketch001". ...

Re: Fillet Problems

If you need a variable then try Sweep with continuation or sweep with a loft.

Re: Fillet covering entire face, rather than just specified edge

Fillet problem#1, if I add the top single edge to the original Fillet list, that seems to work.

Fillet problem #2, that seems broken, your selection is valid but the software is confused.

Re: PCBWay macro

I like this posting, by using a macro there are no changes required to FreeCAD. Good idea! Would be nice if they accepted FCStd files directly. I always thought this was a big issue with CAD, if you start down this path then the CNC/Sheet metal folks need to be able to open files. In the US I would ...

My goals : to help my workflow and simplify modeling in PartDesign. Since I'm not a developer I do everything in macros. The macro ; I'm adding one button to create an new sketch with a creation mode (Lock) and the macro will also run/scan periodically to check for alignments. What happens during t...

Re: Crash when trying to create a sweep

If your trying to do it in PartDesign you need to create a Body and put the sketches in it.
