|0003079||Sketcher||Bug||public||2017-06-09 10:40||2017-06-18 16:23|
|Fixed in Version||0.17|
|Summary||0003079: Auto overconstraint drawing a line on a linked edge|
|Description||When sketching something on a face of an existing body it is very useful to select edges of the body so that the new sketch can be constrainted to it using "create edge linked to external geometry". |
Unfortunately, when (in the new sketch) I try to draw a line over the linked edge, Freecad automatically creates coincident constraints for the end points of the new line over the edge, but also a vertical or horizontal constraint (because also the edge was vertical or horizontal). This overconstraints the line.
This issue can be manually solved by removing the vertical or horizontal constraint but it clearly is not the normal behaviour it should have.
||This is a more general bug, the same thing happens also drawing a line in a clear sketch from the center point to a point over the horizontal or the verticar axis.|
||@PaFe what version of FC are you referring to? Help > About FreeCAD|
||@Kunda1 both 0.16 from the official ppa and 0.17 appimage. I add a screenshot of the situation|
@PaFe thanks. Though please get in to the habit of posting your full freecad versions (Help > About FreeCAD > Copy to clipboard) when seeking any kind of help or opening a ticket. It seriously cuts down on extra bug triaging steps.
@abdullah this looks solver related, mind on offering any feedback?
It is not a solver issue, but it is a sketcher issue. It has been a long standing complaint in the forum. I just got an idea, let's see if I find some time to implement it...
@Kunda1 So sorry, it was my first report, I will pay more attention in the future
@abdullah Great, thank you so much
The reason for the feature is:
Not it is not a bug, because there are cases where this constraint is needed. They involve importing the external geometry, retracing over it, deleting the external geometry to avoid having a break point due to lack of toponaming. Part of this use case is currently given by carbon copy, however not everything has a starting sketch.
However, it is acknowledged that there should be two operating modes, one as the reporter indicates and one like legacy.
@abdullah The issue happens also with sketch standard axis (as showed in the screenshot in a previous note), in this case should be a bug.
In order to have two operating modes the solution can be adding the constraint "hidden" and then, deleting the previous geometry the constraint comes out.
Anyway, in my opinion it could be better to don't add another "vertical" or "horizontal" constraint when the same constraint it given from external geometry. Then in case the external geometry has to be deleted, an underconstrainted sketch is even better to manage than an overconstrainted one.
ok, with the axis it should be a minor bug, I agree.
I have already some working code for single lines. Polylines is more complicated as they have their own specific code to handle transitions. I will give it a look later today or tomorrow.
As for the mode, it will be a checkbox in the editor settings, "Avoid redundants autoconstraints" (by default enabled).
||@abdullah Very well, the checkbox could be a great solution! Thank you|
