Re: Strimmer carburetor insulator

That's some serious reverse-engineering - nice!

Re: CNC Lathe and 4th-axis milling...

Can anyone confirm this anomaly? I distinctly remember adjusting this particular rotation in the code, flipping it 180 degrees so it appeared correctly in the visual representation of the job and model. Is there an error deeper in FreeCAD? Anyone have similar issues with rotational results being di...

Re: PathScripts ImportError: cannot import name PathProject

PathProject is obsolete by now - in fact that wiki page needs a major rewrite.

If you want to script Path then have a look at PathJob - or even better, look at how PathJobGui uses PathJob and replicate that in your script.

Re: Python3 compile of OCL gives only 2.7

I looked into this and it might be libboost that pulls in py2.7 - maybe check the dependencies on the libboost-python-dev package?

Re: Tiny little inconvenience

I have personally come across FreeCAD closing a new unmodified file only, but it does not sound good if it closed a modified file, if you do manage to find a way to make it repeatable with a modified file please tell us how. That's not what I meant - I think we've experienced the same thing. What t...

Re: DO215 originated by Cesare Milani

.... Making a long text short (how i do it, you adapt your on rules, but once set stick to them): 2D Front View = XY-plane in FC 2D Side View = YZ-plane in FC That's why you have to rotate the 2D-side-view parts 90° clock or counterclockwise into the YZ-plane. Nothing magic, just simple transformat...

Re: DO215 originated by Cesare Milani

First off - thanks for posting your projects and updates - I enjoy them very much (and am in awe). I have a question about the video - it seems you've swapped the axis Y and Z and I was wondering if there was a specific reason for that? At first it made sense since you only had half a rib, but then ...

So it is normal for an empty new document to be closed when another document is open?
It doesn't just happen with empty documents - I've had pretty large documents replaced when opening another document. I have never managed to find a reliable process to trigger it though.

Re: Who can help. Not able to make GCode

You have two options, one is you can use the operation Deburr which allows you to specify a single edge for processing and an offset from that edge. It's a bit tricky but if you search this forum you'll find pointers on how to do it. The other option is to upgrade to the very latest development bran...

Re: Build issue with latest sources and Debian Testing

I agree that that's the piece that checks if QtWebEngine is installed or not. However, the actual code doesn't seem to care and uses a different define #ifdef QTWEBENGINE class WebGuiExport WebView : public QWebEngineView #else class WebGuiExport WebView : public QWebView #endif I tried it with Ubu...
