TechDraw Polar Pattern

Post by Machinist#1 »

Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to dimension the diameter of a polar pattern in Techdraw.??
Can't seem to find how to do that... :?:
Thanks!

You can add a cosmetic circle using the TechDraw ExtensionDrawCosmCircle tool and then dimension it.

It’s available in the newest release (0.20). In this case, you just have to select the center of the pattern and one of the patterned circle centers. Then press the button shown in the wiki article linked above and cosmetic circle will be created.

Hi Machinist # 1, Greetings to the Community!
I had a few minutes of time to dedicate to create an example in the animated * .gif that shows how to insert some cosmetic objects useful for the dimensioning and representation of the technical drawing, using TechDraw extension tools useful for your purpose.
Here you can see others made with the macro that gave rise to the extensions that are currently present in the TechDraw interface https://forum.freecad.org/viewtopic.php ... 93c2c0c560

Greetings to the Community!
I thought I'd complete the example of using some of TechDraw's powerful "Extensions" functions by integrating two other animated * .gifs:
- Further refinement of representation;
- Example of drilling dimensioning with the use of coordinates in table format, this function has not been integrated in the extension functions, but it is possible to use it with the "TechDrawTools V-0.4.4-multilanguage" macro.
