Re: [BUG?] PDF export of TechDraw SVG hatching becomes pixelated

I noticed that the PDF export of TechDraw SVG hatching becomes pixelated, and does not stay vector graphics. Short version is that Qt can't clip the SVG hatch to shape, so we convert the hatch to a bitmap on export. Without the conversion you'd get a rectangular hatch pattern over your face. We use...

Re: Correct way to model a trapezoidal pyramid

Approach #1: Create faces for the base, create a shell from the faces, and a solid from the shell try this: def get_poly( self, *corners ): connected = list( corners ) if corners[0] != corners[-1]: connected.append( corners[0] ) vertexes = tuple( self.corners[c] for c in connected ) polygon = Part....

Maybe the dimension and the sketch were b...

Re: TechDraw: error deleting centerlines & How to add correctly

But I don't get how to get the vertical vertical centerline as in the circles above that arc... :roll: Guess we need a "line through 2 points" command. There's a python function that does it, but there's no Gui for it. In the interim, you could turn on Arc Centers on the view tab. yoke_carrier_ArcC...

TechDraw_CosmeticEraser to remove completely, or TechDraw_DecorateLine for temporary invisibility. - how to add centerline correctly? Can't "Add Centerline to Faces", the entire face gets ...

I haven't checked whether this happens in 0.19, so it may already be fixed, but I'm not currently able to install the development version and so I thought I'd note my observations here.
Thanks for reporting. This is fixed in v0.19.

Re: Is there a way of copying dimensions from sketch to TechDraw?

clarification needed: @vocx: do you mean that currently HLR is used even on the 2D geometry and @wandererfan meant that it would be possible to not use HLR for 2D in the future ? Currently everything (except free standing Vertex) goes through HLR projector. This is not actually required for Sketche...

Is it possible to make text follow the border (exceeded text will automatically placed under)?
Multiline input for templates is not supported yet. The work around is to define fields for line1, line2, etc.
