Summary0003466: Control objects visibility via expressions and spreadsheets cells
DescriptionFeature would allow to control object visibility via expressions and/or spreadsheets cells returning 0/1 or True/False.
Additional InformationThis would be valuable in many cases as witnessed by users interest in the following threads:
* https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=18681
* https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=18065

AFAIC, in a woodworker/cabinetmaker use case, this feature would make my base parametric parts, cabinets/furnitures, assemblies much more powerful:
* cabinets with/without shelves/separations,...
* panels with/without edge banding, face veneering

For BoM/cutlist generation, an "Enabled" boolean property (even a "dumb" one) would be further empowering by allowing to manage visibility and "existence" independently.
