Re: Topic hijacked, I'm no longer interested in trying to maintain it

please rename the topic again, it looks horrible and makes the entire forum look bad.. I will not . I left it entirely to the moderators/admins. The fact that the topic is still pinned as a general announcement is exactly what I wanted to shed to light. Since my angered reply on Saturday, not a sin...

Topic hijacked, I'm no longer interested in trying to maintain it

Not anymore. I'm shutting down this topic. If you want to know why, read it in the first post. :evil:

Re: V 0.18 and add-ons

BOLTS and Drawing Dimensioning Addon are pretty much obsolete, as nobody has maintained them in a couple of years. The Addon manager proposes the BOLTSFC fork by forum member bernd and FEM workbench developer. If he was willing, maybe he could update it to work with Python 3. Or maybe a developer k...

Re: V 0.18 and add-ons

Why don't you post the error? Maybe because Montoya88 doesn't know how? It would have been relevant to explain it in your reply. The Report view is not visible by default. Montoya88 talks about a red message that disappears, that's in the Status bar at the bottom of the FreeCAD window. @Montoya88 G...

Re: PartDesign Hole feature

If we ignore the above technical limitations / drawbacks, I think, we all agree that using points makes more sense. I disagree completely with that statement. How can you presume on our preferences? To me, defining a hole through a point is illogical, and no CAD program I've ever used has done such...

Hello zmp2000,

Welcome here.

That sounds intriguing. Could you please post a screenshot? (I'm replying on my phone) I'm sure users would be interested in your theme.

Re: STL to STEP Lossless

If the end goal is 3D printing then going to a STEP solid is a needless, useless and wasteful intermediary step, because 3D printing still relies on meshes, the STEP file would have to be converted back to STL. There must be a different reason why your client wants a STEP file. This is what he sent ...

Re: AppImage after 0.19_pre 16291 - - No longer run in Fedora 29

The 'native' 0.18 Fedora package has oce which I found problematic and I had turned to AppImage for quite sometime (despite some other fallback I had not had time to overcome) to run FC. Would have no alternative if AppImage no longer run. FreeCAD 0.18.1 is provided as a flatpak. It runs well on Ub...

Re: ODA converter will not install

It's not "supposed to", it already has. But I believe it's actually just a name change along with a newer version. LibreCAD 2.1.2 can now open DWG files. It opened all the 2D DWG files that I tested (that I had created years ago). Unless LibreCAD can't open some newer DWG files, I don't see the use ...
