Re: New Workbench MeshTools now renamed 3D Printing Tools

Moved together and resized to be 4:3.. Great. By the way, in your toolbars, you are including words like "Orange", "White", "Yellow", etc. I personally think that you should remove the text, as it makes it difficult to translate. Icons should be understandable by themselves. If you want to know wha...

Re: New Workbench MeshTools now renamed 3D Printing Tools

See what you think It's very nice, I just added it to the notes. I would just try to put the objects closer together so that the picture doesn't have to be very wide. That is, the aspect ratio should be closer to 4x3, instead of this wide aspect, which is almost 2x1. Moved together and resized to b...

Re: New Workbench MeshTools now renamed 3D Printing Tools

I have created a workbench that helps with the importing of stl files from the net, it brings the functionality hidden away to the user without having to resort to trawling the forums to find that bit of python code to do simple things. ... Hi, I'm editing the Release notes 0.19 in the wiki. I'm in...

Re: New Workbench MeshTools

Well, if you think it´s too complicated to go that way, maybe if you can add the object to mesh and a few other mainly STL centric functions into it and then call it something like 3D PrePrint or the like, so there won´t be a naming confusion coming up and later it could be probably even be added i...

Re: New Workbench MeshTools

Hi All Thanks for the feedback so have done some updates to the github issues raised and will update with some help in using this. Cool, but wouldn´t it be better to integrate it with the existing MESH Workbench , or vice versa ? I would agree it would be nice, i had a look at the code to see if i c...

Re: Slicing a solid with a surface

Hi, I am trying to slice a cube with a surface. Solid is created by Pad command and surface is created by filling 4 spline edges. I am expecting to get 2 bodies in the end and delete one. However, I was not able to achieve this via commands under Part workbench, Slice did not work. Can you offer a ...

Re: Create and display local coordinate system

This is so exiting! Since you use catia you are possibly used to the command "point on extrema"? That principle would be highly sought after in the long run, if possible. Perhaps you've seen the discussion of Translate a point with a vector direction. I think this would be a nice addition to your w...

Re: Create and display local coordinate system

It seems you are working on "surfaces originating from points and wires"? Specifically for sheet metal or surfaces in general? Thats the plan, create some tools to generate surfaces for the main tool surface as quickly as possible, my day job is to do this in CATIA V5 and then provide simulation of...

Re: Create and display local coordinate system

Hi All Stumbled across this forum post about Axis systems, i am wondering is it possible to add in the ability to define the App:Placement a Vector for the Z Axis and even one for the X Axis would be nice?. I did try to use .Normal vector or .Rotation but it didn't work. I can Create a Axis on the p...
