Summary0000352: Boolean operations on faces
Descriptiondraw a square, it closes automatically, then draw another square in it. What happens next ? 2 different objects.I think it would be nice to make freecad able to make booleans with faces, to choose between a hole in the square or simply a combination of the two squares.
TagsNo tags attached.

That kind of operations can be done with the Sketcher. For Drafting
it would be possible but a bit complicated to build faces with holes
that way.

Generally I concentrade on Part Design at the moment. The hole
Surface stuff comes later. Its a special niche and that stuff
you will be a long time better of with Blender.

The logic to create faces is already implemented. As J├╝rgen said it's in the sketcher. For instance, if you draw a rectangle and a smaller one inside it and make a pad feature from the sketch you see that the solid box has a "hole" inside. Basically, we only have to extract the logic from the sketcher and make a separate function for this.

It's been already available for a while in the 2D Drafting workbench. Only, it does not work with the generic boolean tool: you need to choose a specific tool: cut, union or intersect. I just tried it in v0.12.4140, and it works.
