Gratitude (by Rudi)
Very powerfull app. This is my "ThinkTank Sketchpad" .
At first I only used it for quick mechanism prototyping but soon realised that i can use it to almost final production stage. Solvepace allows me to neatly organize and name every sketch and with custom colour linestyles make difficult parts and sketches comprehensible.

I like how the developers kept the interface uncluttered with only the essential tools available. Like an painters palette with only primary colours on it . Inspiring the artist to create and not replicate.

At first the parametric solver annoyed me and thought it break my workflow but soon realized it keeps my project alive with dealing with the problem at hand while fresh in my mind. Effectively eliminating tedious hours of fault finding.

Solvespace fit my purposes almost perfect . I am only missing the ability to use maths expressions between elements. " like length of lineA= lineB X lineC " otherwise I think the core soul and direction of solvespace is pefect.

Solvespace is my personal "Da Vinci" validating every line i draw and keeping my project out of the sci-fi realm.

Big thanks to the developers...

This is a planned (and much requested) feature. You can track its completion through issue https://github.com/solvespace/solvespace/issues/77.

Yes, I like it too. I am able to learn this faster than FreeCAD so far.

I am only just now stuck on making a torus?
Seems simple, rotate a circle, but I cant grok it yet.

And auto-fillets would be nice, but I can do it manually at the moment.

Thanks to the developers for this app. !!

torus (by Eric Buijs)
Creating a torus is indeed simple. Just select a point and a line. The line (or normal) being the axis of rotation and the point the center of the rotation. In a simple example draw a circle in the XY-plane, select the normal in the x-direction and the origin (as point). Then press shift-L or the lathe button.
