Description

This tool attempts at removing the inner cubic shape of an Arch Wall or Arch Structure, and adjusting its properties, making it totally parametric. This tool will only work if the underlying shape is cubic (exactly 6 faces, all corners have only right angles).

How to use

  1. Select an Arch Wall or Arch Structure.
  2. Press the Arch RemoveShape.svg Remove Shape entry in Arch → Utilities → Remove Shape.

Scripting

See also: Arch API and FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

This tool can be used in macros and from the Python console by using the following function:

removeShape(objs, mark=True)
  • Takes a list of Arch objects (objs) built on a cubic shape, and removes the inner shape, keeping the length, width and height as properties of the Arch object.
  • If mark is True, objects that cannot be processed by this function will become red.
