I have been trying to move away from my desktop 3D, (which is mainly FreeCAD but I’ve also used SolidWorks) into Shapr3D but honestly there are certain things that seem a bit strange.
In most 3D parametric CADs the sketch is like a mode and it’s always tied to the 3D object (i.e. you switch between Sketch Mode and Object Mode) But in Shapr3D it seems that once the object is extruded then it is separated from the original sketch. For example, if you move the object, the original sketch stays in the original place. Is this “feature” and if so, what is the reasoning behind this behaviour? Or is this a limitation?
What happens if you just erase the original sketch? Is this safe? How do you turn off the object mode to effectively cleanup the sketches that are left everywhere? Seems too weird for me.
i mean this software seems fine to quickly prototype something but once you start getting into editing stuff it seems a bit quirky, or I am simply not understanding it’s philosophy.
TIA for any comments or explanations on th philosophy of the sketching engine and editing shapes and sketches after you have extruded them.
