Re: Techdraw slowing down sketcher

Question 1: Has there been a Techdraw release that removes this problem? You could try the 0.18 Release Candidate FreeCAD-0.18.16093.690774c-WIN-x64-RC-installer.exe from https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.18 There have been improvements in features and performance in the Techdraw Wo...

Re: [Bug] UnboundLocalError: local variable 'eline' referenced before assignment

The crucial piece of information for me to get an error is to have Edit > Preferences > Draft > Grid and snapping > Always snap to be Unticked. I noticed in Draftsnap.py that eline is only set to None if active: and active is dictated by getParam("alwaysSnap" . Here's the list of changes to DraftSna...

Re: PySide2 vs PySide in macros

Also a related question: Is there a method of specifying some level of compatibilty from the macro, i.e. "This macro will not work with your FC version"? I would guess some combination out of >>> FreeCAD.Version() ['0', '19', '16146 (Git)', 'https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD.git master', '2019-03-...

Re: Airfoil Import & Scale V2.2 macro

I've run the macro again, this time without using a "," in the chord length and it's ok. It seem the macro only accepts length in whole mm's. The macro does work with chord lengths that are decimal fractions but using full stop as the separator. It's easy to make the macro handle both "." and "," a...

Re: Airfoil Import & Scale V2.2 macro

This latest version worked perfectly for about a week and then started turning down legitimate *.dat files, which it had excepted without a problem upto that moment. Morning @Oldflyer, as there's some different formats, I tried NACA0012 as a Lednicer format and Selig format using your attached macr...

Re: Drawing line weight not updating

I have attempted to modify the line weight per the instructions on the TechDraw LineGroup wiki, but after applying the changes in the Preferences I do not notice any change on the drawing. On a linux system it would be in %intallDir%/data/Mod/TechDraw/LineGroup - not quite sure where that is on a W...

I've just renamed my User.cfg and System.cfg and retried as if I was a new user and all works OK.

Re: Macro to compute center of mass

Thanks for the update and the colours should prove helpful. Just for info I had to change line 27 to: __Icon__ = 'https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/images/4/41/Macro_CenterOfMass.png' in order to stop this error : <unknown exception traceback><class 'SyntaxError'>: ("(unicode error) 'utf-8' codec can'...
