Re: Dimension drawing standardization completed

Just an opinion, but all the dimensions on a page should follow the same rules. Sorry, I probably did not explain well what I mean. Sometimes it really make sense for ISO drawings to create a small gap between the piece and the extension line. My question meant: Is there a case for a single dimensi...

Re: Dimension drawing standardization completed

Hi to all, the ISO 129-1:2018 says in section 5.5, paragraph 6: It is permissible to have a gap, eight times the extension line width, between the feature and the beginning of the extension line. Gaps can be used with any terminator. Therefore yes, the gap is allowed. From my point of view, it is no...

Re: Dimension drawing standardization completed

Hi to all,

I have just updated the Wiki page concerning the Dimension properties - https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/TechDra ... ion_Length

If you are interested, please take a look and eventually let me know, if something is not clear or needs to be reformulated.

Kind regards,

Tomas

Re: Dimension drawing standardization completed

Exactly - the TechDraw preference serves as a default for a newly created dimension. Once it is created, use the "Standard And Style" resp. "Rendering Extent" properties in each dimension's "View" tab to modify the selected dimension. I will update the Wiki documentation pages very soon.

Re: Dimension drawing standardization completed

Hi all, I am glad you like the update, any bug reports or enhacement wishes are welcome. Now I will try to update the Wiki documentation pages to reflect the new options. Also I would like to thank to @Wanderefan for code review, valuable advice and final (non-trivial) merge. For @PAT64: the Standar...

Dimension drawing standardization completed

Hello, it took me longer and it was more difficult than I expected, but finally I have created a pull request https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/2552 completely remaking the drawing of the dimensions. What are the highlights and what it gives you: Full support of ISO 129-1 and ASME Y14.5M stand...

Re: Pan Tool in Techdraw

Hello,

I tried to add the middle button panning, as I am as well used to the 3D navigation and I always wonder (firmly holding the middle button), why the picture is not moving :-)

Here's the pull request:

https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/2458

Kind regards,

Re: Improved radius drawing

Hello, I'm glad it worked out well :-) Not to wish bad luck on you or anything, but I hope you become unhappy with diameters, angles, etc! :lol: :-D Yep, I guess diameters are the next ones... Is there the possibility to set this in preferences too? Basically there is new default Standard and Style ...

Re: Improved radius drawing

Hi again! So I went through the ASME Y14.5-2009 standard and now we are able to fully support it. Each dimension has a new property "StandardAndStyle" which allows the user to select the dimension appearance. Four values are supported in my draft: 1) ISO Oriented = straight line with the text tilted...

Re: Improved radius drawing

Hello, sorry for a late reply, the weekend kicked in... @Jee-Bee That's a very good point. I did not realize that, but You are right. Now the best solution seems to attach a "Standard Style" parameter to every single dimension, pre-filling it with the user preffered style only when a new one is crea...
