Re: TechDraw feature request

My way should be(probably) to pass, shape by shape and compare the result with all shapes passed with HLR algo. I think it's not impossible, we just have to send more OCC calculations and merge/compare them. I just want functions to export my shapes viewed in 3D in OCC functions/doc to start my tes...

Re: Wanting to contribute to FreeCad, but go some small questions..

If you feel comfortable with C++ code (in general), maybe another useful path to dive into Freecad is to browse the bug tracker and try to fix some issues or add some features. :) This is how I started more or less. It gets you used to the build process, the general structure of the application, th...

Re: Help please

That would be of no help. A DatumPlane attached to a face is almost as bad as attaching a sketch directly. I was thinking more about a Plane co-located with face, with the location a function of standard datums, rather than attached to the face. If the Face moves or gets renumbered, the Plane stays...

My feeling is to place datum planes for every new face you want to work on.
Should the act of mapping a sketch to a face create a datum plane automatically? Maybe hidden so it doesn't clutter the tree?
With a "show me my hidden planes so I can fix my model" button?

Re: Detail View Issue

Hi All, with reference to attached FC file, I have an issue with the detail not showing what I expect Any ideas why (BTW the same issue in 0.18) Confused if not projecting onto XY plane. Definitely a bug. I rotated the Body around X by -90* and it works that way. cube_detailLoation_rotated.png

Maybe it is possible change the Edit Section panel to something like this:
I like it. Look for it in a future update.

Re: TechDraw feature request

Hidden lines are calculated by the OCC Hidden Line Removal (HLR) algorithms. Once a shape passes through HLR any connection between Edges in the source and Edges in the result is lost. So there is no way of knowing what appearance attributes in source belong with which object in the result. In addit...

Re: [Bug?] Allowed section area smaller than Body size

I noticed a small problem with TechDraw sections. It's a bit difficult to explain, so I made video about the problem. Basically the section view cannot extend beyond the body's original bounding box, and if you rotate the body, the bounding box is not rotated, which generally gives you too tight li...
