Overview

LineGroups are used to control the appearance of various types of lines.

If you have write permission you can edit LineGroup.csv to add your own LineGroups.

This file is usually in

$INSTALL_DIR/Mod/TechDraw/LineGroup/LineGroup.csv

Where $INSTALL_DIR is the directory where FreeCAD was installed, for example

/usr/share/freecad/Mod/TechDraw/LineGroup/LineGroup.csv

You can specify your favourite defaults in the TechDraw Preferences.

LineGroup File Path

  • Windows: C:\Program Files\FreeCAD\data\Mod\TechDraw\LineGroup\
  • Mac: /Applications/FreeCAD.app/Contents/Mod/TechDraw/LineGroup/
  • Linux: /usr/share/freecad/Mod/TechDraw/LineGroup/
    • freecad-daily PPA: /usr/share/freecad-daily/Mod/TechDraw/LineGroup/

Note: A new preference has been added to allow you to use your own personal LineGroup file.
