Re: How to use expressions as in OpenScad

I don't know why the figure in the original rendering by OpenSCAD does not give 'solid' panes with the full colour but some pieces with stripes; The stripes are an indication that you have overlapping triangles: OpenSCAD's renderer doesn't know what to draw with two coincident surfaces of different...

Re: How to use expressions as in OpenScad

Are we confident that the FreeCAD is actually wrong? There are multiple overlapping triangles in the OpenSCAD, I don't think there's anything we can do about the rendering of coplanar surfaces.

This seems to be the solution.
Yes, absolutely, that sounds like a great idea, and would be very easy to implement using Preference Packs.

It's a pretty large PR, so it takes reviewers some time to get through it. And there is another, larger, higher-priority PR in the queue. So alas, patience is required :) .

Re: [FIXED] Ticket #4610: OCC's step export pathway generates bad geometry

Check the copyright notice at the head of importCSG.py ;) Don't have much spare time these days so rely on Chris to fix my bugs. Right! It's funny to be relied on as the expert here, when clearly Keith is the real expert in the room! Regardless, I'm back now and can take a look at this. Can one of ...

Re: [Feature request] Let Addon Manager show current and available version of an add-on

obligatory XKCD reference :D One of my favorites. That's why, rather than inventing a new standard from scratch, I tried to adapt a metadata format that was in use by another substantial project, and has been for many years. REP 149 is a flexible, robust, easy-to-implement standard: https://ros.org...

Re: Metadata: One Standard to Rule Them All

It would be a simple matter to include a <changelog> tag if desired. Maybe something like:

Code: Select all

<changelog version=“1.2.3”>Fixed the bug from 1.2.2</changelog>

Re: [Feature request] Let Addon Manager show current and available version of an add-on

See also Pr 4787: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/4787

…which includes a first cut at implementing the metadata format we discussed. The format is very easy to extend to include the ideas in the OP above, and me hope was to work on add-on management once that PR is merged.
