Re: Assembly3 preview

Please check out the links in my previous post. Particularly links from around 2012. Yes, I've read some of them. I have also previously watched SW 2019's new feature demos on youtube and amazed by their new assembly improvement, which leads me to say that nowadays, those mid-rage CAD can already h...

Re: Assembly3 preview

Hi realthunder. I brought this up before and it has always been in the back of my mind ever since. Some class teaching assistants claim that CAD products like NX, CATIA and CREO can handle very large assemblies of say 100,000 parts while Solidworks (maybe not Solidworks 2019) and others cannot. Usu...

Re: Assembly3 preview

Do you know why? I'm also interested in the answer. I guess the answer lies between "Gui.runCommand('asm3CmdSolve',0)" and "Gui.runCommand('asm3CmdQuickSolve',0)". What you get online is ways all these programs handle large assemblies. What large means for each i am not sure (1000, 10000, 100000, 1...

Re: Release of 0.18

Regarding py2 / py3 and which should be the default, my rather conservative view would be that where py2 is still the default on a distro, we should use the same for 0.18, as its objective is to be stable, not have people find and report problems. But we should switch in 0.19. But it's not a strong...

Re: name FreeCAD 0.91 instead of 0.20, means version after 0.19 could be 0.91

Also, there are actually several issues being discussed here: 1. should we drop the leading 0 in the version to communicate FreeCAD's maturity (and stop communicating its immaturity) 2. should we have a 1.0 release to communicate FreeCAD's readiness for wide usage 3. should we use a major.minor.pat...

I do not understand how 1.0 or 2.0 tells me whether i am using a current version not??
Strictly speaking a year.month version doesn't tell you if it's current or not, either, just if it's recent.
Yes that is what i said. Which means it is more information than version numbers like 1.0, etc.

Re: name FreeCAD 0.91 instead of 0.20, means version after 0.19 could be 0.91

How often does one really need to say, version X was this long ago? All that seems to matter to me is to know the current version, and to be able to say whether a version is older than current. I'm not a fan of year.date versioning systems because doesn't allow you to communicate the significance o...

Re: name FreeCAD 0.91 instead of 0.20, means version after 0.19 could be 0.91

Agreed. Given that native assembly functionality is the big target of this release cycle I'm all for skipping 0.19 and doing a 1.0 release. Is there a reason to choose 1.0 instead of 19.03? I mean it just because of the year. It is a great indication. Maybe it affects packaging that is why I am ask...
