Re: Draft Edit improvements

Thank you @yorik, I perfectly agree! It's a very complex subject and not just for copying but also for basic transformations on parametric entities: for instance, I was reflecting on how to treat rotations around a non-Z axis for walls (if their normal have to change or not) or how to handle scaling...

Re: Draft Edit improvements

Thanks carlopav. I think that updating the current Draft Copy tool with this one could be a good idea. In that case, if the main developers agree, I'd like to have some opinion and suggestion to lead the development towards the right direction. For instance: What's the scope of the tools? just Arch ...

Re: Draft Edit improvements

Hi, sorry for not having detailed how it works! :oops: (I wrote it down in the header of the script and I forgot to mention it in the forum post). You can select the elements before or after launching the command. Then you can: cycle between selection types pressing Ctrl + Space Press q to stop the ...

Re: Draft Edit improvements

Hi everyone, in order to better fit the program with my BIM workflow I started writing a macro that intend to automate some basic editing operation like move, rotation, copy... of Arch object which usually have bases, additions, subtractions. I notice the option added by Moult for editing the object...

Re: Copying without losing links

It seems that the copyObject() method works correctly and no relinking towards the new objects occurs. So I quickly wrote a very simple macro to implement a duplicate command that maintains the existing link. It needs to be tested yet but, in the meanwhile, I think it could be useful to share it her...

Re: Copying without losing links

Thanks DeepSOIC,

now the reason of this odd behavior it's clear.

Indeed, linking to the internal name of the object is a way to avoid this pointing shift.
Unfortunately using just the objects' internal name in expressions is not a convenient way to operate.

I hope this bug will be fixed soon.

Copying without losing links

Hi, I'd like to know if there is a way to duplicate an object without losing the links to that object.

Re: IFC import

Solved! I needed to recompile ifcopenshell but this time I followed the tutorial published on https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=17536 It's important to note that in step 9 I had to use the version of python 2.7.12u rather than the 2.7.12 (the latter didn't work). Surely I did somethi...

Re: IFC import

HI, some updates about the issue: I tried to import an IFC file in a Windows 7 machine. Actually I tried on two machine, a physical one and a virtual one (the last is hosted on Virtual box by one of the two Ubuntu machine I unsuccessfully used until now). The FreeCAD version I used is the same (0.18...

Re: IFC import

Yes, thanks: my FreeCad is in English as well as the operating system (Ubuntu Gnome) it runs on. I also installed IFC++ and its viewer works without problems. I'm going to test it in a windows machine (a virtual one) to check if there is some difference. I'll let you know about it. I'm so perplexed :?
