As Printed Parts

I am organizing the current parts into modules based on the working document @ on page 2. -Dixon

Conditions of satisfaction for complete CAD for a given project means that we have a complete part library:

  • Parts - for building Modules, for producing Fabrication Drawings
  • Modules - Made of multiple parts, these are sub-assemblies of the Final Assemlby. These are used for Exploded Part Animations, Language Agnostic Instructionals (LAIs), and other work.
  • Final Assembly - The completed build. for Exploded Part Animations, LAIs. Note that the Final Assembly may have to use Simplified Assets in some cases to remain workable
  • Simplified Assets: Parts, Modules, Assemblies - these are versions with details removed. Some may be grouped to facilitate handling. In some cases they are drawn from scratch as only abstract, blocky models - to save significantly on file size.
  • File Size Requirements - all assets meet File Size Requirements for that particular asset type. Files can't be so large that FreeCAD can't open them or work with them effectively.
  • File Organization - Spreadsheet of all Assets (both Simlified and Complete assets) is available
  • Construction Best Practices - procedures for effective part building in FreeCAD are followed for each file.
  • File Build Documentation - Each file is documented for how to create that file, so novices can get up to speed in making modifications. A short video with voiceover is the best way to document a part build. This is important because this creates design literacy in the general populace.

HintLightbulb.png Hint: Once all the parts here are stable, we will create a FreeCAD Extruder Workbench which includes a drag-and-drop of every part within FreeCAD

missing image for part 20, 28, 32

Images for parts 36 and 37 appear to be duplicates, as do 43 and 65, 42 and 65, 36 and 37 appear to actually be duplicate files. Not sure what is going on there, but I misread the error so the duplicate will need to be deleted once we figure out why these are listed as separate parts but have the same file. Are they interchangable?
