In my attempts to design my little raspberry Pi robot, my main objective is to create a base-plate for mounting the various parts.
My original approach was to draw shapes & then draw sketches around them in the base plate, so when extruding there will be mounting holes left.
Since the 2. 0.6 update, my very complex base plate sketch became unbearably slow. While this is already under investigation, it made me rethink my approach.
So now I try to create shapes & subtract them from the already extruded base plate.
See the motor protection brackets that I would like to subtract.
However doing this results in loss of my carefully crafted shapes. I could use freeform move to create clones - but that’s cumbersome. Is there an easy way out of this?
