Description

The Symbol tool inserts an SVG file into the page. This symbol can be anything that helps annotating your drawing, and that doesn't need to be further modified.

TechDraw SymbolSVG sample.png

Compass rose added to the drawing page; this symbol is available by installing the "symbols_library" addon with the Addon Manager

Usage

  1. Press the TechDraw Symbol.svg Insert SVG Symbol button
  2. A File Save dialog will open.
  3. Select a location and file name.
  4. Press OK

If the symbol appears larger than expected, use the scale property to adjust its size.

Notes

  • DANEScale Type for Symbols is always set to Custom at creation. This is for convenience, since symbols are almost always scaled differently from the rest of the objects on the page.

Scripting

See also: TechDraw API and FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

The Symbol tool can be used in macros and from the Python console by using the following functions:

sym = FreeCAD.ActiveDocument.addObject('TechDraw::DrawViewSymbol','TestSymbol')
rc = page.addView(anno)
f = open(unicode(symbolFileSpec,'utf-8'),'r')
svg = f.read()
f.close()
sym.Symbol = svg
rc = page.addView(sym)
