Text-x-python.png Macros

This page lists macros that can add functionality to a FreeCAD installation.

If you have written a macro and want to include it in one of the categories on this page, then go to Macro documentation to learn more about properly documenting a macro.

Categories

Part CheckGeometry.svg 3D View operations

  • FCCamera 00.png Macro FCCamera: This macro can rotate the screen in a defined angle and the defined axis and creates a plan to face the screen to create a form in the specified plan positions the selected face facing the screen, to detect the position of the camera.
  • Macro Mouse Cross.png Macro Mouse Cross: This small macro turns the arrow of the mouse in a precision cross.
  • Text console python.png Macro Rotate View Free: This macro is used in the Python console and rotates the current view in the angle and plane given.
  • Macro Screen Wiki.png Macro Screen Wiki: This macro allows to save the 3D view in the desired format. The 3D view or the full 3D window of FreeCAD takes the desired dimensions.
  • Snip.png Macro Snip: Easily post screenshots to the FreeCAD forum.
  • Macro View Rotation.png Macro View Rotation: Provides a GUI to permit rotation of view by precise amounts in all three directions.
  • Zoom1 1.svg Macro Zoom 1:1: 1:1 Zoom so objects appear their actual size on the screen.

Draft FlipDimension.svg Animation

  • Animator.svg Macro Animator: Animate your model by animating its properties with this feature Python object.
  • Macro Constraint Draft.png Macro Constraint Draft: Simple example animation Draft wires by use the Expressions for associate many wires and simulate or verify the movement. Here the circle rotation create the movement for all objects connected (This macro run with FreeCAD version 0.16).

Applications-python.svg Code and scripting

Usage

See how to install macros for a full description, and customize toolbars to add the macros to a toolbar for easy access.

Installing many macros is equivalent to installing a new workbench; see how to install additional workbenches for this information.

Automatic installation

Use the Addon Manager in Tools → Addon manager to install a macro that has been included in the FreeCAD-macros repository. introduced in version 0.17

Manual installation

If the Addon Manager is not used, the macro can be installed manually.

  • Copy the Python code from the corresponding macro page.
  • Open the macros menu Macro → Macros, press Create, and give it a name.
  • Paste the Python code that you copied.
  • Press the Save button, and restart FreeCAD.
  • To use it, open again the macros menu, select your new macro, and press Execute.

Add a macro to a custom toolbar

  • Go to Tools → Customize.
  • In the Macros tab, add a new macro name, and optionally define an icon and a keyboard shortcut.
  • In the Toolbars tab, create a new toolbar, and add your macro, taking it from the Macros category.
