Summary0002683: Add Refine shape feature to PartDesign
DescriptionIn PartDesign Next, creating a Refine shape feature from the OpenSCAD workbench on a PartDesign feature used to be possible. Now, two things happen:

  1. The OpenSCAD Refine Shape feature breaks the chain of features, and is created outside of the active Body.
  2. The created feature fails with a "Links go out of the allowed scope" error.

While the Body itself can be selected for the Refine shape feature, refining a PartDesign feature under a Body may be necessary for some ulterior operations such as fillets or chamfers.

This feature request asks for a new dedicated PartDesign tool, but would it be possible to make the OpenSCAD feature compatible instead? For example, the Sheet Metal workbench add-on was made to be compatible with Bodies.
TagsNo tags attached.

I think this is quite a show stopper because as the complexity of a model increases, the likelihood of "internal edges" preventing a correct fillet increases exponentially. I am resorting to refine the endshape of a body and filleting with part->fillet, which is not right.

I will try to do something about it.

Since this report was originally introduced, behaviour has changed, as Scope was introduced; also added question about making the existing OpenSCAD tool compatible instead of creating a new command that duplicates existing functionality.

This adds properties to the feature types:

Open part of the report is to prepare OpenSCAD refine feature to the new PDN logic

Is that really necessary? I was not expecting the solution to be implemented with a Refine property under each feature, but now that it is, I think ensuring compatibility of OpenSCAD Refine feature would be redundant. I think it would be OK to close this report as resolved.

IMO with the addition of the Refine property for most PD features, we can consider this report resolved. We don't need to make OpenSCAD Refine Shape feature compatible with PD features. We are not supposed to link to individual PD features from outside anyway - just to the Body itself.

As explained in the comments, the requested functionality has been provided by adding a "Refine" property to all PartDesign features (work done by DeepSOIC), said property defined by the "automatically refine..." setting in Preferences/Part design/General.

Therefore, this report can be considered resolved.

Seems like resolving is not the same as closing an issue.
