Summary 0004253: No "snap to intersection" implemented in Sketcher
Revision 2020-01-21 16:23 by openBrain
Description I'am used to work a lot in construction mode (blue lines), and anchor object lines (white lines) to points defined there later in the process.
I noticed that there is no "snap to intersection" feature implemented in FreeCAD / Sketcher.
If compared to other CAD tools this is (for me) something essential missing.

The example attached, gives a nice opportunity to test the problem.

On the way you can notice, that the order of snapping is improveable too.
(Snap to the next construction point first and not the next line possible.)

To understand the example: it symbolizes the end of a shaft entering a gear. The sides of the triangle are milled a little bit "malicious" and don't fit the regular hexagon.
An (example) shape is given, but I'd like to do the equivalent using blue construction lines and their intersections for defining points.
