Description

The Draft Layer creates a special kind of group that controls the visual properties of objects placed inside of it. By changing the properties of the Layer, such as line width, line color, shape color and transparency, the changes are propagated to the objects that make use of the Layer property.

This tool replaces Draft VisGroup starting from FreeCAD 0.19.

Note: The BIM Workbench offers a complete layer manager tool, which will eventually be included in Draft

Usage

  1. Go to the menu Draft → Utilities → Draft Layer.svg Layer.
  2. Change the desired view properties of the Layer.

Properties

  • DataGroup: specifies the elements that are part of the group.
  • Visual properties that can be changed that are propagated to the objects: ViewDrawing Style, ViewLine Color, ViewLine Width, ViewShape Color, ViewTransparency, and ViewVisibility.

Scripting

See also: FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

To add or remove objects from the layer, simply overwrite its Group attribute.

group = App.ActiveDocument.Layer.Group
group.append(App.ActiveDocument.Wire)
App.ActiveDocument.Layer.Group = group
