The FreeCAD Assembly4 External Workbench Icon
Assembly4 is an external workbench that is used to perform assembly of different bodies contained in a single file or in multiple documents. It was created in the v0.19 development cycle to take advantage of Assembly3 branch's new features, such as the App Link object, and the new expression engine.
It was developed with the idea that a true constraint solver was not needed, and instead the expression engine was enough to establish relationships between different local coordinate systems attached to bodies. Thus its prototype name was "Assembly without solver" or AWS.
Assmebly4 can be installed from the Addon Manager.
