Are there functions like polytrim in part workbench

Post by hanumanx »

I imported an stp file of a part. Currently, I tesselate the shape to create the meshed version. Then, I use polytrim function to manipulate the edges of the part (basically for trimming some edge points).

I was wondering whether there is an equivalent function for trimming in any other workbenches, so I dont have to tesselate the part. Sorry if this is a stupid question. I am still new to Freecad

Hi and welcome to the forum!

I'm very unsure if this post really belongs into the Python subforum.

An imported Step file doesn't have a history. So you can not change it directly. You can, however, take it as is and add or subtract something of it. That would be better than using a tesselation which usually is a degradation.
