Arch BuildingPart v01.9

Hi All, Trying to add an Arch BuildingPart to a newly created document. Code stops with following error. 08:30:15 Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/share/freecad-daily/Mod/Arch/ArchBuildingPart.py", line 602, in attach lin.coordIndex.setValues([0,1,-1,2,3,-1,4,5,-1]) <class 'AttributeErr...

Re: Viewing list of values associated with an object

NameError: name 'Cube' is not defined Hi TedM, Use the object FullName rather than the Label that shows in the treeview. Note that a single Cube is actually a Part::PartFeature with an internal name of 'Box' - watch the bottom left corner of your FreeCAD window to see the internal name as you selec...

Re: An open source home in the BIM workbench

Hi OverkillTASF, The plot thickens. I've been idly watching telly and trying out some combinations of Inspiration (underlying rectangles), subsequent Extrusions and an Arch Remove cut on a Panel. See attached file. I've left all the rectangular inspirations and cut extrusions visible in the file so...

Re: An open source home in the BIM workbench

Nice. Ok just so I understand, this is your outlining of the circumstance that leads to this, right? There's not an expectation that the shape that serves as an extrusion's inspirations be moved around _with_ the extrusion, right? Maybe there is such an expectation. As you had drawn it, I attempted...

Re: FreeCAD Applink file - very slow to work on

Hi arnn, The TechDraw pages need to be set for manual updates. Right Click over each page and toggle Keep Updated to off. Save your file and speeds return to normal. There is something going on in Page 004 which slows things down. I'd look very closely at the view. TechDraw pages being automaticall...

Std Link - missing sub element visibility in a linked Arch Building Part [edited]

Hi All, this has stumped me. Trying to link an Arch Building Part into a target file. Have created a box and a cylinder in an attached Source file. Have taken copies of both these objects and placed them in a Building Part. Have created a Std Link in the attached target file. The linked BP Label and...

Re: An open source home in the BIM workbench

Continuing on... I see in the latest gitlab version of the house from OKill, there is no cut of Panel010. Looked at previous copies I had downloaded, I'll admit that I did lose track of which copy is which. Maybe some sort of versioning is required in the filename? The underlying rectangle for the ...

The question is then: why does it fail for Panel010 in OverkillTASF's file?
Will have to look again later today - only quick idea is the selection order correct?

Cheers.

Re: An open source home in the BIM workbench

I don't know _anything_ about garage door framing... and the left side, while it won't have a garage door _yet_, the ability to easily add one later is part of the build requirements. So I'm probably gonna leave that bit undone and see what the structural engineer has to say. I had a squiz at DuckD...

Re: An open source home in the BIM workbench

The Arch_Remove tool does not work with panels. I beg to differ - that's how I do it all the time - see attached file. Draw Panel, re-orient upright and re-position to suit. Draw rectangle partially covering panel, extrude it to straddle panel. Select extrusion, Ctrl-select Panel, press Arch Remove...
