Notes:
 +
* If you convert a [[Draft Wire]], the resulting sketch will use point constraints for the nodes.
 +
* If you convert a [[Draft Rectangle]], the resulting sketch will use point constraints for the corners, and horizontal and vertical constraints for the edges.
 +
* If you convert a [[Draft BezCurve]], the resulting sketch will be approximated by a [[Sketcher CreateBSpline|Sketcher BSpline]], as the [[Sketcher Workbench]] doesn't support Bezier curves currently.
 +
* Non-Draft objects that are totally planar will also get converted to sketches.

In the past, a [[Draft BSpline]] couldn't be converted directly to a sketch.

Since FreeCAD 0.17, the conversion from [[Draft BSpline]] to [[Sketcher CreateBSpline|Sketcher BSpline]] is possible. However, converting a spline to a series of arcs may still be useful for exporting geometry to applications that don't support B-Splines, like KiCad.

Description

This tool converts Draft objects to Sketcher Sketches, and vice-versa.

Converting Draft shapes into Sketcher shapes with constraints


How to use

  1. Select a Draft object or a Sketch.
  2. Press the Draft Draft2Sketch.svg Draft Draft2Sketch button.

Notes:

  • If you convert a Draft Wire, the resulting sketch will use point constraints for the nodes.
  • If you convert a Draft Rectangle, the resulting sketch will use point constraints for the corners, and horizontal and vertical constraints for the edges.
  • If you convert a Draft BezCurve, the resulting sketch will be approximated by a Sketcher BSpline, as the Sketcher Workbench doesn't support Bezier curves currently.
  • Non-Draft objects that are totally planar will also get converted to sketches.

Limitations

The conversion of an object that cannot be represented with a combination of straight lines, circular arcs, and B-Splines will usually fail, that is, the item will not appear in the sketch.

In the past, a Draft BSpline couldn't be converted directly to a sketch. A tool to perform this conversion was developed for the KicadStepUp Workbench, which would take a Draft BSpline and convert it into a series of Sketcher Arcs. See the forum thread BSplines to Shape2DView and Sketcher for more information.

Since FreeCAD 0.17, the conversion from Draft BSpline to Sketcher BSpline is possible. However, converting a spline to a series of arcs may still be useful for exporting geometry to applications that don't support B-Splines, like KiCad.

Options

There are no options for this tool. Either it works with the selected object or not.

Scripting

See also: Draft API and FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

Internally the Draft2Sketch tool uses two methods to convert back and forth from Draft to Sketch.

Convert objects to Sketch:

Draft.makeSketch(objectslist, autoconstraints=False, addTo=None, delete=False, name="Sketch", radiusPrecision=-1)

Convert objects to Draft:

Draft.draftify(objectslist, makeblock=False, delete=True)
