Description

This command is used to activate the graphical user interface (GUI) and the tools of a specific workbench.

It is possible to execute it in three different ways:

  • the View menu,
  • the drop-down menu, or,
  • a Python command.

There are also two special options available: None (no workbench) and Complete[deprecated].

How to use

Often the project starts in a workbench, for example with Sketch, then continues in a different workbench, for example with Part, to create objects. You can switch from the current workbench to a new one with one of the following ways:

From the View menu

  • In the top menu, open the ViewWorkbench menu and select a workbench. This menu is always available, even when you have previously selected the Complete or None workbench.

From the drop-down menu

  • In the top menu, open the drop-down menu and select a workbench. This menu is not available when you have previously selected the Complete or None workbench.

Via Python console

  • Type the command in the console, for example: Gui.activateWorkbench ("DraftWorkbench") start the workbench Draft. Always possible.

Examples
