Facebinder - очень простой объект, построенный из выбранных лиц других объектов. Он параметрический, вы можете соответствующим образом изменить исходный объект и объекты объекта facebinder. Затем его можно использовать, например, для изготовления экструзии из коллекции лиц из других объектов. Типичное использование в архитектурном дизайне, построение объекта, который покрывает несколько кусков стен. Вы можете перемещать и поворачивать facebinder вокруг после его создания, все будет оставаться связанным с оригинальными лицами.

It can be used to create an extrusion from a collection of faces. This extrusion can for example represent a wall finish in architectural design.

Facebinder created from the faces of walls


  1. Select one or more faces.
  2. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Draft Facebinder.svg Draft Facebinder button.
    • Select the Drafting → Draft Facebinder.svg Facebinder option from the menu.
    • Use the keyboard shortcut: F then F.

A Draft Facebinder object is derived from a Part Feature object and inherits all its properties. It also has the following additional properties:



  • ДанныеArea (Area): (read-only) specifies the total area of the linked faces of the facebinder.
  • ДанныеExtrusion (Distance): specifies the extrusion thickness of the facebinder.
  • ДанныеFaces (LinkSubList): specifies the linked faces of the facebinder.
  • ДанныеOffset (Distance): specifies an offset distance to apply between the facebinder and the original faces, prior to extrusion.
  • ДанныеRemove Splitter (Bool): Specifies whether to remove splitter lines that divide co-planar faces of the facebinder.
  • ДанныеSew (Bool): Specifies whether to perform a topological sewing operation on the facebinder.



  • ВидPattern (Enumeration): specifies the Draft Pattern with which to fill the faces of the facebinder. This property only works if ВидDisplay Mode is Flat Lines.
  • ВидPattern Size (Float): specifies the size of the Draft Pattern.

To create a Draft Facebinder use the make_facebinder method (introduced in version 0.19) of the Draft module. This method replaces the deprecated makeFacebinder method.

facebinder = make_facebinder(selectionset)
  • Creates a facebinder object from the given selectionset, which is a list of SelectionObjects as returned by FreeCADGui.Selection.getSelectionEx(). Only selected faces are taken into account.
    • selectionset can also be a PropertyLinkSubList.

A PropertyLinkSubList is a list of tuples; each tuple contains as first element an object, and as second element a list (or tuple) of strings; these strings indicate the names of the sub-elements (faces) of that object.

PropertyLinkSubList = [tuple1, tuple2, tuple3, ...]
PropertyLinkSubList = [(object1, list1), (object2, list2), (object3, list3), ...]
PropertyLinkSubList = [(object1, ['Face1', 'Face4', 'Face6']), ...]
PropertyLinkSubList = [(object1, ('Face1', 'Face4', 'Face6')), ...]

The thickness of the Facebinder can be added by overwriting its Extrusion attribute; the value is entered in millimeters.

The placement of the Facebinder can be changed by overwriting its Placement attribute, or by individually overwriting its Placement.Base and Placement.Rotation attributes.
