Project description


Primative Shapes

Primative shapes to build or test ideas quickly

  • Cube

  • Box

  • Sphere

  • Cylinder


These components can be used in assemblies during development as a means to debug your part placement, and to demonstrate Mate coordinate systems.

  • Coordinate System Indicator

  • Planar Indicator


Use indicator on a primative

To illustrate how an inciator can be used to show where a Mate is on a Part, we’ll create a simple Assembly:

import cqparts
from cqparts.constraint import Fixed, Coincident

from cqparts_misc.basic.indicators import CoordSysIndicator
from cqparts_misc.basic.primatives import Box

class MyAsm(cqparts.Assembly):
    def make_components(self):
        return {
            'box': Box(length=30, width=20, height=10),
            'indicator': CoordSysIndicator(),

    def make_constraints(self):
        return [
            Fixed(self.components['box'].mate_origin),  # fix at world origin

from cqparts.display import display

From this we can see that the mate_neg_y mate has:

  • its Z-axis along the world -Y-axis, and

  • its X-axis along the world Z-axis.
