Re: What do Symbols mean

Also which workbench are you using? Some of what you say looks like you might be talking about Part WB but I also suspect you might be using PartDesign WB. If you are actually modelling the threads, then there are some tricks you need to consider, like the profile being swept along a helical path mu...

Re: Problem with Formula Editor

I am assuming that you are talking about working in the PartDesign workbench. On ProE I would have setup the sketch on the end surface of the Base Object rather than offset it from the main XY plane. I have since seen that that can be done, b Yes, can be done, but best not to. TopologicalNaming limi...

Re: Amount of CAd users

Re: Import part from FeeCAD to existing FeeCAD file

It sounds to me that you are talking about working at the complete file level, that is you want to import a complete fcstd file, i.e. a complete project not just a specific object from within a second fcstd file If so you want the Merge Project tool, it's under either the file or tools menu.

Re: Problème pas de vis ou écrou avec Freecad 0.19.

I moved this topic to this French forum from an English language forum, thank you for reporting it. The question appears to be pretty ridiculous, at least via Google translate. Please let us know if it turns out to be spam.

Re: FreeCAD 0.19.3 released

You can also "install" (in fact unzip) to a USB stick, but then your preferences will be different, depending on what PC you use the FC from your USB stick. Really portable would in my opinion if I could keep the preferences and I don't know yet if this possible. If there was such an inst...

Re: Editing parts from assembly in STEP-format

dimensions Yeah, bad word to use, everything has a dimension, (constraints) Yes, no constraints ...or editable properties ... to define those dimensions But that is a limitation of STEP files, not FreeCAD, which goes back to my earlier point, that STEP files just give you little more than not direc...
