    Sorry - correct me if I'm wrong, but currently (copying sketches) with AlibreScript all sketch dimensions and constraints are lost.

    Super. This nailed my decision to upgrade my atom to expert. Thanks.

    It won't be Solidworks level but it will be vastly superior to doing everything one step at a time.

    A script that changes a picked side to have an angle.
    Ie when 3D printing for casting, you usually have somewhere between 3 and 7 degree angle on the mold side to allow the cast to release from the mold.
    ++ for standard threads to be applied easily. Again for 3D printing

    And a way to import STL 3D print files.
    Properly not really a script but a function within Alibre, but this is really needed

    Hello MainJet,
    Have you tried this:

    https://www.alibreforum.com/forum/i...not-exported-with-stl-file.21126/#post-136084
    If you don't get a Helix-Script-function added to the skript API...
    I have tried this: https://www.alibreforum.com/forum/index.php?threads/thread-loft-test.20636/
    no real response -> so been not motivated to make a better version...

    Regards
    Stefan

    No to both.

    Thanks

    I know this has been mentioned before, Does anyone have a script that draws up standard metric bolts and nuts?

    Hello RocketNut,
    with or without thread?
    Without thread oldfox has done 2 skripts.
    With thread you should read post #49 above
    I also tried thread to a sweep along an calculated "bspline helix" but the "triangle" profile gets twisted along the way up the manual helix...

    I also made an attempt with a loftet thread:
    upload_2019-9-5_16-28-31.png

    is geometricaly ok, but is awfully slow in my perception...

    Ask Andy(or Max) for the Helix function in Alibrescript, then a skript will be no real problem...

    Regards
    Stefan

    Nut, here are the scripts for metric screws and nuts, M2 thru M20.
    If you have trouble, let me know. Otherwise just enjoy.

    Got two requests:
    1) I'd like to see a script which does an automatic batch-export (or conversion) of all Bill-of-Materials files within a file folder (and the option to find & export/convert those in all subdirectories, as well).
    2) Batch-export of all Assembly files to a universal format (STEP214, etc).
