Re: Is there a recent compiled version of 0.17 for Windows?

You run it directly from the \bin\FreeCAD.exe executable. Since these are development builds, no "proper installer" is provided. I'm guessing that it's to save some time, since they are produced quite often. It's your choice to create a shortcut to the executable somewhere else. @ sgrogan: this is ...

Re: Is there a recent compiled version of 0.17 for Windows?

Hi! GitHub is misleading in that it lists the date 0.17 builds started to be published (which happened around the time 0.16 was released). Look at revision numbers in file names of the downloads instead. There are downloads that are very recent. Unpacked and running. Anything I need to do to instal...

Thanks I thought it might be something like that.

Is there a recent compiled version of 0.17 for Windows?

Just checking, sorry if I missed something but the last posted compiled Windows version seems to be April 2016, here . I understand there may not be a more recent version as dev is in linux, but wold like to know if there is, or if anyone has a reasonably stable one they have compiled themselves. If...

Re: FreeCAD renderer is CPU bounded (at least for me)

I think the shimmering is z-fighting. I can almost reproduce this. On one computer with nearly identical set-up as @mouse, same cpu and RAM, slightly lower Radeon graphics (I'll edit this post tomorrow with the exact model) Rotating wildly in CAD Navigation, I get 3% cpu, ie 25% of one core. Releas...

Re: FreeCAD renderer is CPU bounded (at least for me)

I am running under Win 7 ultimate on a i7-2600 3.4 Ghz machine with 16Mb of memory. 16 Mb of memory is not a lot. I wonder how Windows can even start. :D Any insight into this problem of the rendering shimmering when I am doing nothing to the object. It seems to consume a lot of cycles? What's abou...

Re: FreeCAD on the web

Interesting find, fandaL! It's mostly positive which is good, but one thing made my eyebrow twitch: If I have to lodge a complaint at all it’s that there is no layering system included; all display options seem to be controlled by object. Anyone who’s ever worked in the CAD field is going to find t...

Re: FreeCAD renderer is CPU bounded (at least for me)

For architecture models, yes, it works quite well already (examples: https://github.com/uncreatednet/casa-economica/blob/master/modelo%2001.FCStd https://github.com/uncreatednet/wikilab-ufabc/blob/master/wikilab.FCStd ) Indeed at some point you begin to reach performance limits. But there is a lot ...

Re: FreeCAD renderer is CPU bounded (at least for me)

As far as i know Multi threading and CAD software is difficult! Creo Doesn't and most processes in FreeCAD doesn't eighter. As far as i know only Boolean operations using multi threading... Maybe later on Assembly can use multithreading during loading... but that's a wild guess. Thanks I can see it...
