I used HBPM to design a simple box with dividers, and can see the incredible value when making changes. Kudos to the Shapr teams for implementing HBPM! I know it is a work in progress, and some of this is probably on your radar to implement… Here are 3 items I would like to see in the History panel:
- Editable Names. Seeing several items named “Filet” or “Extrude” isn’t as helpful as “Front outside fillet” and “Side panel”. Icons can identify the type of object (sketch plane, extrude, fillet, etc.) just as the Items panel does with on the left side (sketches, bodies, geometries); then allow editable name.
- Groups or Folders. Many objects are logically connected. For instance if I want to change the back two corners of my box to be with or without fillets, both the interior and exterior fillet are logically connected. I would like to put the two fillet commands in a folder and call it “back corners.” The Group (or folder) could then be suppressed as an entity. This is similar to the Items panel.
- Suppression icon. To suppress an action, or a folder of actions I would like to see an icon like the eye on the History panel. This would be similar to the Items panel. Then when I want to suppress or un-suppress some of the elements in History, it is one click.
