Features Request: Toggle "Assembly4 mode" in Part Design WB

Post by jruiz »

As we know, when Parts, Bodies, Sketches, Planes are going to be created in Assembly4, a name is requested before their creation.
After creation, Parts and Bodies have their respective LCSs.
In the case of Sketches, LCS, Plans, Axes... attachments are requested.

Beyond any workarounds, I think Part Design WB should have these features as part of it.

you mean you want to be asked for a name every time you create an object?

Yep, but beside this, to:
  • have LCSs included in Parts and Bodies and
  • to be able to select the more references for Sketches to be attached to, (appart from XY, XZ and YZ planes)
And, if Part or a Body is selected (without activating it), a sketch can be created inside it...

With this I agree, there's already a couple of discussions requesting this and I think a github issue too.

Yes, but they do not have an "LCS object", as the ones created with the corresponding tool, which is IMHO very useful.

Probably because LCS is a concept of Assembly4 WB?

if is true adding to the std Part Design WB will make a preference over an Assembly WB out the many available.

I think this will lead also on some retrocompatibility issue that usually are not adressed by WB creator.

And probably if there is already a discussion about similar things it is not as plain as it could seems at a first glance.
