Re: [Discussion] Splitting Draft tools into their own modules

... Is it something that could be also contained in each object module, so DraftEdit could just call object.giveMeEditPoints() and object.updateVertex(vertexIndex, FreeCAD.Vector) ? I think it wouldn't be a big problem to do that. However, to start, I would prefer you to keep it contained to a sing...

Re: tutorials for Beginners- updated versions?

I am very new to using FreeCAD and wanted to teach myself though (video)tutorials but most are for older versions,... See Tutorials and Video tutorials . FreeCAD went through a major update from 0.16 to 0.17, particularly in the PartDesign Workbench . So make sure the tutorials you follow target 0....

Re: What is my best course of action?

More specifically, i want to use it to plan out packing and truck loading models. Where should I start? I'm not sure if i would build boxes/road cases as a "part" and then import them into a bigger model of a truck? From your description it sounds like your geometries aren't going to be very comple...

Re: [Discussion] Splitting Draft tools into their own modules

1) Backwards compatibility: If the Line object is moved to DraftLine, I think in Draft we need something like: " _Line = DraftLine.Line " I think this can be in a clean block somewhere (I started that the the begin of Draft.py) Maybe there is a better way to do it, though. Okay. Just a nitpick here...

Re: Python codeformating Draft, Arch in the regard of pep8 etc

Now that I've added a bunch of docstrings to various files in Draft, there is more complete programming documentation. For example, the following image is automatically generated by Doxygen, from Draft/WorkingPlane.py . It's not particularly pretty, because Doxygen just shows the text verbatim. But ...

Re: [Discussion] Splitting Draft tools into their own modules

On the cons side all existing scripts out there would likely stop working after such attempt. ... Why would they stop working? As far as I can tell, all public functions and classes would still be provided in the Draft namespace, that is Draft.makeLine() Draft._Wire Draft.makeWire() ... So there wo...

Re: How to get rid of pep8 error E266 in FEM?

I thought this was just a slip up in the topic but I notice the Wiki page also contains what I've always known to be a hash sign - # being called a pound sign. I guess I tried to be "correct", so I used a formal term. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Number_sign However, given that this is about docum...

Thanks for the info. I did see in the sources a reference to the "old style" but wasn't sure.

Re: Tips on improving techdraw performance

Sorry, I was actually trying to make less work. I thought the DXF format was created to rid the issues of trying to convert dots into lines. The svg format is not very easy to use when it comes to creating dimensions. Please proceed.. :) The way it's done by many in FreeCAD, is that you add the dim...

Re: Mapping objects on faces

For the same reason (inheritance on Part2DObject), many Draft objects can be dragged into PartDesign bodies, and be interpreted as sketches there. In my personal use of Draft, I never attach Draft objects to anything. They are just, say, floating. They are built on top of the active working plane. ...
