Summary0000328: Support of more basic elements
DescriptionI think, it would be good to support more basis elements, and basis functionalities which are usefull for more than one application.
surbanus said:

 - axis systems (interesting for CAM, Measuring, ...)
 - point and plane (cutting, ...)

 - (show/noshow) show all invisible elements, an select the elements to change them to visible

 - (selection of elements) by fence, by box, ...

 I think, some of these functions should appear in the basic system, to be used from every application.
TagsNo tags attached.

Elements representing the real construction world would be helpful for
 anyone, and those elements being there without having to load anything
 would encourage new users to start exploring FreeCAD

 That would be:
 Box (as it is now), Sphere, Cylinder, and all of them with wall thickness
 as well, for tubes, real boxes, etc.
 Simple flat surface, with the possibility to drag parts up or down, to
 represent the terrain for architects and gardeners.
 Tubes following a given path, for bended tubes (more complicated, but
 needed very much in mech. engineering)

 Using such basics combined by boolean operations it would be possible to
 create a lot of things! Even parts usually created via extrusion of a shape
 may be created, maybe in a more easy way to understand and to modify, once
 we see constraints. Just take a sheet (box), cut off the edges (subtracting
 boxes), drill holes (subtracting cylinders).

You both guys are right!
 But - unfortunately ;-) - hours day has 24 hours to. So I will concentrate
 first to get
 the base system in shape and the first test for that (sorry) will be the
 mesh module.
 After fixing this in the 0.8 release I will go on and wire the Cascade
 methods to the
 interface and script of the part module.
 So stay tuned...

Thank You too, Jürgen,

 so I'm looking forward to version 0.9 :-) That probably would be the time
 for starting up production using FreeCAD, and spreading the news about this
 great project to CAD-users.
