Datum Plane orientation request

Hello guys, is this the right place to throw an idea? As I start to love working with the datum planes and the super duper nice capabilities of attaching them to anything, I found myself always guessing wrong which is the xyz orientation of that datum plane. Is it possible to add a graphic of the ax...

Re: Error in any shape from gmsh

I didn;t understand a bit from that post, and I figured its kind of a mess to install a package from 18.04 to 18.10. So I went online, downloaded the gmsh binary v4.xx and replaced the old gmsh in /usr/bin . Most likely I have caused a lot of mess, but hey, it looks like it works. It throws a error ...

Re: future in assembly? a2+, assembly3, what else?

Thank you all. I started migrating to A2+ It has lots of weird issues, but I love 3 things specifically! a) Imported parts do not need to have only one visible part, (with the downside that the imported part shows the hidden parts too) b) Relative parts! Yes!, Since all my files are on Git it saves ...

future in assembly? a2+, assembly3, what else?

Hello, I am using freecad a lot for designing open source agriculture equipment. So far I am using the Assembly2 workbench with all its flaws :) But since the new approach on the PartDesign workbench, and the introduction of Bodys and Parts, I sense that the Assemby2 workbench is not the best way. A...

Yeah! That's the video I saw on reddit that got me into doing this!

I don't know how to animate stuff on freecad yet, but I can share the files for anyone willing to do it

Here's a download link
Is it dead link?

Re: post processor resources

It's trying to compare the Z value to the z_check value but z_check doesn't exist yet. Add z_check=0 at the beginning of the parse() function. Attached my version but still stressing that I haven't actually tested it. No worries :) As I dry run this logic I can see that it will put a "code that zer...

Re: post processor resources

I could totally give you a hard time about not checking the FAQ but that's probably not fair. The answer wasn't there until a couple hours ago. It came up in another thread today and got added haha! And I was pretty sure I have read it! So the post processor gives some errors PathPost.DEBUG: about ...

Re: post processor resources

If that helps in resolving this bug it does not work well in edge profiling when I add a second hole to the base geometry. Also Another question plz if I am not bugging you too much.

Re: post processor resources

I've heard rumors that some plasma software will move to a penetration point, then circle for a period to pre-heat the material before descending and beginning the penetration cut. This would be a perfect place for a dressup. Your probing routine might be another one. Not for plasma, but for a flam...
