Re: Dowels by curved line

when creating the propagation on curve select 2 points as transformation mode. this will give you the option to select a front and a back point on your part which then gets used to align the part with the curve. with a round part like a dowel its not a problem but with rectengular shapes you want to...

Re: Cyclic reference between elements

A cyclic reference forms when you try to make something depend on itself to exist. So for example, you make sketch A for something. You then proceed to make sketch B and use A to constrain it. Then using B you make an extruded shape. Then you find out A needs a little adjustment and you try to const...

Re: Coordinate system not visible anymore

i have the same problem some times. switching to one of the standard views (like top view) always makes it come back though. assuming of course you didn't turn it off in the options yourself 8).

Re: Loghouse parts

what the keep both part function does is that it takes your original part (O) and then makes 2 or more copies of it depending on how you trim. so you then have O1 and O2 and O gets taken out of your assembly (if it was in there to begin with) and put in non visible mode. at the same time O1 gets tri...

Re: Loghouse parts

Re: Problems with the 2D view in the drawing

top solid will always orientate parts in a multidraft according to its axis. since you place more than 1 part i assume it just pics an axis since your assembly does not have one. try selecting add to sawing up in the characteristics of your assembly and then adding x an y directions in a manner that...

Re: driver coating and finishing

i'm sorry what i said was not quite correct. yes you can make a text driving but it's not possible to make it control the material. i'll explain how to make a text driver though, who knows it might come in handy. place a text via tools-text-type something easy to recognize like finish or something. ...

Re: Undo planning view

you can make a new view and have all the sections transfer to that if you want, that way the rest of your sections wont break. i agree the function is cool, we use it to make our ceiling plans. But apart from what i said earlier i don't see a way to undo it.
