Python Workbench Template

I have been working on some FreeCAD workbenches and I experienced that it is not easy to find out how to get started. There are a lot of examples and code snippets available in the internet. I have tried to put it all together to a complete, simple workbench that you can download from github: Python...

Re: New Feature: Notch Connector

I am still unsure which is the best workbench for the NotchConnector. So I leave it where it is for now.

Re: Curved Shapes Workbench

Nice! Can you elaborate on what the usecase for each one would be? If you create a surface with the Curved Array, a different distribution may give you better results. If you create an elliptic wing, distribution elliptic would be the best solution. If you create the Curved Array inside a half circ...

Re: Cabinet furniture design tools workbench

The Wood-Frame workbench seems to be in an early stage of development. You cannot even install it via the addon manager. And yeah, the crosspiece tool in the LC interlocking workbench is doing nearly the same than my tool is doing, it has even more features. But I think it is not a good design pract...

New Feature: Notch Connector

I have written a new tool "Notch Connector". It cuts notches into the overlapping part of two bars https://raw.githubusercontent.com/chbergmann/CurvedShapesWorkbench/master/Examples/NotchConnector.jpg Currently it is in the Curved Shapes workbench , but it does not really fit in there. Maybe the Arc...

Re: Best practice: fuselage + wing

@christi : I'm very interested in the acurracy of the gordon surface approach, can you tell us if there are some possibilities with it in your workbench (i'm not an expert and not a mathematician...) ? CurvedArray surfaces from the Curved Shapes workbench are created with a different approach then ...

Re: Curved Shapes Workbench

You can comment out the line #from importlib import reload then search for all reload(whatever) commands and comment out them as well. Restart FreeCAD to apply the changes. These instructions are only neccessary if you are working at the source code. They will always reload the python files when you...

Re: Tutorial "Curved Shapes"-workbench gesucht

Hallo Allerseits, weiß jemand, ob es ein Tutorial zur genauen Handhabung der Workbench "Curved Shapes" gibt - am besten auf Deutsch ? Bislang habe ich leider nichts (anfänger-)verwertbares gefunden. Gruß, Bernd Ich habe mir mal die Mühe gemacht, die Hilfe auf deutsch zu übersetzen: https://github.c...
