Re: How to offset a sketch from the plane, or place on a face of geometry?

Shal that's what I want to do. But don't I have to have a sketch of a circle to locate the hole? The Hole page on the wiki is very unclear IMHO. I really don't have the time or energy to digest the attachments tutorial so I'll just try the datum plane method. A nice feature would be to be able to s...

Re: Which issues will start to arrive with the splitting of complexity?

... It is not that case and you know it too when you have worked previously with the CAD programs that I mentioned before. I don't agree that it is wonderful and the way it must or need be. This is your prejudice/opinion. Please, pull a branch, implement it and show us. Obviously the arguments so f...

Re: Which issues will start to arrive with the splitting of complexity?

...No. You need to select them first. When you only have one body you still need to select that. But, I don't need to open other files. Look, what you propose is just change for change sake.

Re: Turning Zolko's theme in to a Preference Pack

chennes I'm trying to get a feel for the possibilities (limitations?) of the pref pack. It essentially saves the parameter tree shown with Tools>Edit parameters??
