Re: multiple views from same prospective

Today I have found a minor issue, when exporting the front view I get an extra point in the drawing which is not available in the 3D model, see the picture here (I am starting from the freecad file attached above):

Re: multiple views from same prospective

This sounds like the topological naming problem . Essentially, TechDraw dimensions ( TechDraw_Dimension_Length ) depend on the names of the edges in the 3D model. If you change the 3D model, the dimensions in TechDraw may break because the edges are renamed. Therefore, you should only add your dime...

Re: build failure with assembly module enabled

when building freecad using Genoo Linux I get the following error related to the Assembly module: ... probably the build failure is related to the commit 6da72b9859f6d21119831d44a8d132c8e2dfb544 where someone left behind assembly module. ... I think 6da72b9859 is part of the big merge of App::Link ...

Re: multiple views from same prospective

Visibility in the 3D window isn't considered in determining what gets printed. It's an interesting approach though. actually the visibility has some effect as described above but it's not what the user expects :) was able to destroy a drawing when playing with my experiments, most of the quotes and...

Re: multiple views from same prospective

Here is attached the file. It's a step file provided by a supplier and imported into FreeCAD. What I do is the following: I select the tab with the 3D design and define the left view so that the assembly is shown from the top I press the "Insert default Page" button from TechDraw toolbar I select th...

multiple views from same prospective

I have the following design: with.png without.png and I am preparing the drawing using TechDraw. The two pictures differs from a cover part which is hidden in the second picture. I would like to show two top views with and without the cover at the same time to put in evidence the inner channel but a...

Re: QT vs pyside versions

Thank you for the clarification, now it is clear. PySide installed on the system is masked by the wrapper shipped with FreeCAD:

Code: Select all

>>> import PySide
>>> PySide.__path__
['/usr/share/freecad-0.17/Ext/PySide']
>>> import PySide2
>>> PySide2.__path__
['/usr/lib64/python3.5/site-packages/PySide2']

QT vs pyside versions

Freecad can be compiled against Qt4 or Qt5, the two frameworks are supported by pyside and pyside2 respectively. Freecad compiled with BUILD_QT5 seems to work without problems with python scripts using pyside (and not pyside2). It seems someone is doing some magic behind the scenes, here is what I s...
