Re: New Module for Technical Drawings (TechDraw)

I just saw the announcement via Facebook of all places. I thought, it cannot be what I spent time working on, but indeed it is!! Admittedly it did bring a huge smile on my face! Just a little update, I am in the process of wrapping up my PhD towards the end of the year (fingers crossed), so will be ...

Re: Materials, physical, optical, for ray tracer and simulat

The idea I had years ago was hooking onto some kind of material properties framework and selecting a XML definitons for each specific ray tracer like a template. This is buried somewhere in my repo as I haven't looked at it for a long while. One thing that hasn't been answered is the idea of real-ti...

Re: Constraint Visuals / Solver Messages in Sketcher - Quest

It would be nice to give a refresh to Sketcher GUI as it hasn't really changed over the last two+ years. I am quite surprised little tasks related to the GUI / user interaction haven't been achieved by now...

Re: Suport for .AMF Filetype Export?

Last year I was talking with one of the author standards (D. Rosen). It's a semi-proprietary standard which was what I was quizzing them over. The standard is a certainly improvement but I remain skeptical and even though there's a small fee associated with obtaining the standard, unless you are inv...

Re: Double-click distance/time in Sketcher

Unless this is changed, the double selection distance in Sketcher should be the default distance and time provided by Qt.

What screen resolution do you have aswell? I'm not sure if anyone has tested this using a tablet pen input...

Re: Drawing: SVG and Browser Views

My implementation used QGraphicsView which allows interactivity at a c++ level. I wouldn't advise using QtSVG because it's an extra 'addon' module in Qt and I don't think it's being update / maintained in the long term, especially when it comes to Qt5. Qt5.3 brings a new Qt Webkit engine that will b...

Re: Sketcher: Ellipse support

Well, to be honest with you my trigonometry knowledge is very rusted, but I think that an Ellipse should have 5 degrees of freedom (I see this as x,y of both focuses+constraint on distance to both focuses from any point = major diameter, 2*2+1=5). Those 3 points can not be any 3 points, or you woul...

Re: Sketcher: Ellipse support

Hi abdullah, Great work so far. Do you have this in your git repo just to have a look at? Aren't ellipses usually defined by three points and then use distance constraints to determine major and minor axes and rotation? I guess there will be also an ellipse arc too for adding an angle constraint. I'...
