This page explains how to do parametric design automation using the Spreadsheet Workbench in FreeCAD 16 including features on objects, translation, and rotation based on starting with sketches.

Coordinates and Operations

This is how FreeCAD 16 works:

  • Proper angular rotation occurs when rotating around the Z axis (axis = 0, 0, 1)
  • Work in the XY plane for the Sketches. Extrude in the Z direction
  • Features on a solid object drawn as separate objects in the part tree propagate with the orientation of the original sketch.
  • Features that break
