Re: [A2P] Converting PartDesign body brakes it.

Isn't that what the combination of SourceFile and SourcePart is supposed to accomplish ? It could be done this way, but i prefer a new property something like "localSource" to describe the original object which has been converted. In this case l can keep a lot of code untouched. And when you update...

Re: [A2P] Converting PartDesign body brakes it.

# doc.removeObject(obj.Name) # don't want the original in this doc anymore obj.ViewObject.Visibility = False This helps a little bit as the original is still kept existing. But it would be an very incomplete solution. We will need a new a2p object for conversion purposes, which references the origi...

Re: A2plus rotate interactive not working for me

I had a look at this problem. I found 2 issues. 1) I produced a bug within my latest release 0.4.48 (This was no problem for you because you are using an older Version of A2plus). If fixed it with version V0.4.48a 2) You can not rotate your crankshaft directly. Why? Mouse movement only translates t...

Re: Bugs/Issues Blocking v0.19 Release (+ WB/Addon devs check-in about Roadmap for 0.19 release)

Does A2P breaking Partdesign bodies sound as a blocking bug? Should I make a bug report and bump the thread since it did not get attention? Tricky question. Normally I would say that addon workbenches cannot be showstoppers for a new release, but this one is really widely used. So it is kbwbe's tas...

Converting parts to a2p format is one of the most weak points of the workbench at moment. There is need to rework it.
I have put it to my todo list.

Re: Assembly/sub-assembly color data propagation to rendering

A2plus is storing the colors for each face, not for each object. Especially when importing subassemblies. A subassembly is one big compound, the color of each face correspond to the originally imported parts. Probably the rendering engine is not able to recognize the colors of each face. But i am n...

Re: A2plus V0.4.47.g Add Parts Info

Adding more fields to the a2p-partslist is quite easy. Just edit this file with an texteditor: "a2p_partlistglobals.py", keep correct python syntax. Here is an example: PARTINFORMATION_SHEET_NAME = '_PARTINFO_' PARTINFORMATION_SHEET_LABEL = '#PARTINFO#' BOM_SHEET_NAME = '_PARTSLIST_' #BOM = BillOfM...

Re: [RFC] standalone measurement panel for FC

But with more and more experience, measuring becomes less and less important. I think this is a wrong assumption. When doing big projects, many step files are used, a lot of complex sub-assemblies too. Not all dimensions are clearly written to data sheets. Not every aspect of a subassembly mets the...

Re: A2Plus Plane Constraint Offset

I am using A2Plus V0.4.47e on Freecad version 0.18. The issue I am having is that when I do Plane constraints and I want an offset the offset I enter does not work. It always defaults to zero. Is this a software issue or a user issue (the latter is always my biggest issue :D )? I have seen on the i...

Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

BTW - do you know how to draw, from Python level, a 3D arrow of given origin and direction? It would greatly improve my debug capabilities to draw some arrows representing all the intermediate vectors that are used to calculate each step of solving. I have integrated some helper tools for this now....
