2D structures basic calculations

I found this https://anastruct.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html python module which may be interesting. Since it is working for Python versions >3 I guess now it's possible to use it in some way into FreeCAD. Similar to the use of fluids/thermo modules inside flamingo, one possible application co...

Re: Flamingo + dodo wb discussion thread

Finally dodo is committed: https://github.com/oddtopus/dodo That is the workbench intended to replace flamingo for releases >= 0.18 of FreeCAD. At present time, except the basic adaptations to py3 and qt5 syntax, it's just been introduced a new input method of pype elements based on PieMenu (prelimi...

Re: Experienced FreeCAD developers needed

Why facilitate jobs offers and job applicants here if they don't even relate to FreeCAD? We are not a general CAD forum, we are a forum about FreeCAD. Fully agree with NormandC. The "4 freedoms" that generally apply to free-software can be summarized as use+copy+modify+redistribute: using the resou...

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...

[SOLVED]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...
