Re: FreeCAD 0.19: graphic problem report

This sounds like a graphics driver issue. Did your system receive updates recently, perhaps automated? We have seen here similar things with Nvidia or Radeon cards. Nope. But I had to disable multithreading in Linux to run FreeCAD by setting an env variable (env LIBGL_DRI3_DISABLE=true). Maybe it's...

Re: Flamingo (Workbench) discussion thread

Few questions for programmers: in versions with py3, when I import PySide, am I actually importing PySide2? I mean, is it an alias created under the hood just to save compatibility with older code? The reason is that I got an error while using the method QInputDialog.getInteger() and realized that i...

FreeCAD 0.19: graphic problem report

I tried to run the win64 build of the pre-release 0.19 on a Windows 8 system: the so-called "portable" one, just zipped without installation script. First the program started smoothly and the start menu shows-up. Then if I push "create new" or try to do anything like opening one existing file, all t...

Re: Flamingo (Workbench) discussion thread

Finally I had the chance to patch flamingo for the py3qt5 issues and found it was not too far from compatibility. Except some forgotten "print" statement and few syntax change, almost all commands are working fine, at least using the appimage version FreeCAD_0.19.16121_Conda_Py3Qt5_glibc2.12-x86_64....

Re: Python3 and Qt5 Compatible Addon Workbenches (in preparation for 0.18)

Dodo is the new Flamingo... (an aside: one would think it be the other way around being that the dodo is extinct? I get the levity thing and all but what about naming the workbench something that describes what it does in a descriptive way? (not to rain on your parade and creativity)... But anyhow,...

Re: Flamingo (Workbench) discussion thread

Thank You @hatari for your kind advice. Herebelow some explanation of some of the points. I'll work on the others as soon as the stable release 0.18 will be issued. Qt-issue: FC crashes when FrameManager is open and you first select an existing structure created along a sketch and then click in "the...

I just can't figure out how you 'snap' the sketch rectangle 2 corners to the external edges seem w/o picking the Coincidence button at 2:35 - 2:41 :idea: :?:
Used keyboard shortcut "C" after selecting points. That's because it's time consuming to aim exactly at the point every time. ;)

Re: Flamingo (Workbench) discussion thread

I found out a bug with this file: Can't make a full path, the first leg is missing. mmh.. In the comments of my code I found that I patched that part some time ago: file pipeCmd.py, lines 362-369. I'll review it. It may deal with the orientation of selected edges when the procedure try to find the ...
