Insert Surface Finish Symbol in FreeCAD Drawing


Hello friends welcome to FreeCAD tutorial and in this tutorial we will learn how to insert the surface roughness symbol in a FreeCAD and as you can see that I have made a drawing and I wanted to assign roughness 3.2 to these two surface of my drawing.


as you can see that in a tech draw workbench there is a not very straightforward way to add the surface roughness symbol like a software  like SolidWorks. but in FreeCAD  there are some different way to do this so we will learn how we can do it so first you have to search for the SVG symbol on Google so here I wanted to use the Ra 3.2 for my part.


 it is a  SVG file of RA 3.2 which is from the Wikimedia so it is a free and open source so you can use it save this image if you want to make changes to SVG file you can use inscape software.  Techdraw workbench you will see a option called insert SVG symbol.


I given the path to my saved SVG file and you can see that Ra 3.2 so it got inserted  so if you want to move it just on the frame and move itif s size is Big so I will select the frame and give it proper size.


Now I wanted to attach to this surface so I will drag it and attach to this surface. if you want to rotate the symbol and provide he angle.
