Can one display the current value of the slider?
Sure and make it an edit box so user can type in a value also.

Think evenly adjusting all the other values not being adjusted would make it HARD for the user to get to a desired result.
That is what the 'lock' is for.

Re: confusing behavior of the 'Check Geometry' tool

What you are seeing is OCC sharing shapes. Here is output from occ draw, an occ testing tool. 'face_1_1_1' is a simple rectangular face. I ran that face through the prism command, think freecad extrude, and then tested the results with 'nbshapes', think freecad check geometry shape content. That seq...

Re: Any clever QT programmers out there?

You could create some kind 'pie' control, but you would probably have to get into custom drawing of control. I think a simpler solution is to use sliders that modify other sliders equally to maintain your desired sum. You could also lock values so other slider changes wouldn't affect those locked va...

(it expects all OCCT, libs and includes, to be in one single folder apparently).
That is probably how occ is distributed on windows.

Is it possible to cut/trim a non-thickened surface?
I know you can through python. I don't if/how you can through the gui.

Re: Fusion Problems

Tanderson did you shorten the U edge by 0.15mm leaving a 0.15mm gap between the U and V ends? Or did you rejoin them but without tang-ency? No. I didn't do any work with curves. I just trimmed the entire bottom of the surface to prove out, that once those u,v tangencies were gone, the thicken will ...

Re: Fusion Problems

Try eliminating the tangency between your u and v edges. I trimmed .15mm off of the bottom to avoid that area. Then I could thicken and get a valid solid. You can still see a wrinkle though.

Re: checkgeometry->bopcheck in background thread

The BOP prefix stands for B oolean Op erations and is only supposed to be used for the result of boolean operations. Norm said the same thing and I think this statement is misleading. When a boolean operation fails they use it on the INPUTS to the failed boolean operation. Think, "boolean simulator...

Re: checkgeometry->bopcheck in background thread

I'd really like to see progress indicators with cancel options used more in freecad The problem with OCCT is that there are only a few algorithms where a progress indicator can be set. BopAlgo_Options will take a progress indicator and the BopAlgo_ArgumentAnalyzer is a subclass. So it looks like th...
