Re: Feature Request: Elliptical Helix

Hi Sparky, you are three days late, but your image is far better. :o yeah I thought I didn't post it because my tab was not reloaded when I realized that your post says exactly the same thing. :faceplam:. But I actually found a use: an elliptical slinky, it actually inspired me to 3d-print one whic...

Re: Feature Request: Elliptical Helix

I'm planning on writing code for an elliptical helix. Great idea, a bit exotic, , but why don't you just make an normal helix and clone it using Draft where you can change the scale of the axes non-equal (f.e. X:2 and Y:1 if you slinky is in the XY-Plane). You should be able to get something like t...

Re: Auto-completion in edition of formulas

In short edited with labels, and saved with names. That makes sense as we discussed a while back, however I think it makes sense to keep the names in for now, so that there is an option for advanced users to use something more permanent and stable. Until we have implemented the whole name-to-label ...

Where would a description about the rectangular selection go?

Hi, I've recently contributed a minor change of the rectangular selection to FreeCAD which will, when drawn from right to left objects even when their only partly inside of the box, when drawn from left to right it will do the usual selection where only the fully boxed objects are selected. This mig...

Re: Auto-completion in edition of formulas

What is the use to allow the same Label for two objects ? I feel that it is not a good idea. I can think of use cases where the same label is used in different bodies and it makes perfecly sense. Soomething like "Base" or "CenteredHole", ... Ok but if you use "Base" or "CenteredHole" multiple times...

Re: Auto-completion in edition of formulas

How can I set up an complete environment for FreeCAD? I just used Qtcreator (you can download the open-source community edition on qt.io) and just imported the project from my git fork. There's also a list with required libs on the README in the section compiling. If you want to learn more on FreeC...

[EDITED] Re: Auto-completion in edition of formulas

edited with labels, and saved with names. First of all thanks for the good description with screenies about what you would like to have in FreeCAD :) . But for my understanding labels and names are one thing, there's a bug however that shows the old label (you call it name) and this also seems to e...

Re: Auto-completion in edition of formulas

So I assigned the request to myself and have quite some progress to show:
phpBB [video]

There are still some small tweaks necessary like not showing a suggestion after a space (and some more characters like +-*/). If there's anything that might be missing, do tell.

I implemented touch-selection for the Sketcher

Hi, I added a feature that I call touch-selection to the Sketcher which already exists in the Part Design workbench. If you draw your selection rectangle from right to left, Sketcher will now select every object that is partly covered by the rectangle. This works very good for lines, good enough for...
