Re: Newbie ... Editing the drawing templates

Hi @ProBowlUk. Once the drawing is finished export it to SVG. In Inkscape change the drawing template. In addition you can print it to PDF as that is how you usually share the drawing with others. If you will do it like that you will likely be able to use the SVG/PDF drawing for decades to come. In ...

Re: Development overview

And here is another approach on how you could control spline weights. Compared to the spline circles we use in FreeCAD Sketcher ATM:

Re: Sketcher: Bezier curves

However, for that, I do think it is not a sketcher visualization layer anymore. It must be something more general to work inter-workbenches. For that it should probably be real geometry and not just some lines pushed directly to coin3d. Yes exactly. I was after real geometry to be optionally propag...

Re: Development overview

I found a thread on bezier curves (which I'm very excited about) but the solution with circles as control points and weights doesn't look like a good one to me. The use must 'know' that there is another use of 'circle' and that's making the program more difficult to use. I'd rather add the 'control...

Re: Announce first iteration of NaviCube for FreeCAD

I gave it some thought and as for the menu. When user presses on the NaviCube menu button area in the 3D View. Standard QMenu should pop-up (at the mouse position). This QMenu should be permanent. It should have objectName set (for example name Menu_NaviCube) and its parent should be main window. fr...

Re: Request for collaboration: Creating a visual flow chart for reporting bugs

Possible bug is detected. User should search the issue tracker and the forum if it was already reported. If yes update the report with some new information or open forum thread and discuss it. And that short list of how to best describe the detected problem for making other users life a bit easier. ...
