Re: Welding Symbol Testing Help

i'll try. May I have a look at yours? for best practices, so to speak. Best practices? Don't know about that, but my revisions to your originals should be in master by now. ..Mod/TechDraw/Symbols/Welding/GOST. When I did the AWS symbols, for most of them I did a version for above the leader("arrow ...

Re: Welding Symbol Testing Help

May be on the next week I'll try to make 64x64 version of these symbols. I've made 64x64 version of your first group. You could make additional ones in 64x64? :D We have 1 subdirectory of Welding Symbols - AWS (American Welding Society). Should yours go into a GOST directory or an ISO directory?

Re: Techdraw super slow, unusable...

Just for the records: I'm using now the 0.19 version (appimage). It is 1.2-1.3 times faster, but still unusable when you have a threaded part... If you turn the threads off on the clamping screw and replace its threaded clone with an unthreaded screw, your file loads in less than 30 seconds and doe...

Re: Dimensioning circular patterns in TechDraw

Is it possible to dimension circular patterns in FreeCAD 0.18? If so, how? What I am looking is best illustrated by this video, although it uses (I think) Illustrator: https://youtu.be/3RfG5xHA1LA?t=217 (should start playing at 3:37). You would have to use helper geometry. Not very elegant. HelperC...

Re: Need help understanding DXF import and export prefs

The "new" importer is defined in C++ files located in src/Mod/Draft/App Pretty sure the real source for the "new" importer in in Mod/Import/App. It has been maintained more recently than the one in Draft. Also there's a message in AppDraftUtilsPy saying not to use DraftUtils.readDxf, but to use Imp...

Re: Parts vs. Bodies

And back to the original topic, yes, FC has a big problem with nomenclature. This has been the source of many "spirited" debates, such as this 8 pager - https://www.forum.freecadweb.org/viewto ... gn#p222622

Re: Parts vs. Bodies

Unfortunately, another element that has been a consistent norm over that time is that programmers (developers) tend to dismiss the user perspective too easily. My experience is that developers are very happy to build whatever the end users want. They may be prevented from doing so by budgets, sched...

I would like to have the full polygon. I sketeched that really quick; I want to get the hatched polygon, i.e. the 5 vertices forming it:
How about:
Polygons -> Faces, Common(Face1, Face2), Common->OuterWire, OuterWire->Vertexes, Vertexes->Polygon.

Might not need the OuterWire steps.

Re: [ Bug ? ] TechDraw ArchView Door/Window do not create Opening ?

After toggling on/off Keep Updated, then Recompute the Archview.... !!!, the Windows Openings are shown !? Just a guess, but this probably triggered a recompute of the object (Wall?) containing the Windows/Doors. I know I am forever recomputing Wall to see how my Windows really look. There is nothi...
