Re: Part/Draft constraint equivalents

Why would you replace Sketcher with Draft? You can use Sketches in Part workbench as well. I wanted to understand how to use Draft better. Posts say some people prefer draft/part and others prefer sketch/part design. I wanted to understand the differences better and why one might choose to use one ...

Part/Draft constraint equivalents

I'm trying to get more comfortable with Part and Draft WB by duplicating something I did with Part Design and Sketches. Attached are two cut down files, one using PD and Sketch WB (Reamer_PartDesign_1.FCStd) and the other a partially done Draft (Reamer_Part_1.FCStd). I'm wondering if anyone can give...

Re: Links on the download page hardly visible

First you would have to fork the repository at https://github.com/freecad/freecad-homepage, then you need to open up terminal and type: Thanks, that's the piece I was missing. You pointed to the code for the download-notes css. There are also links at the bottom in the footer-custom area. They are ...

Re: Links on the download page hardly visible

But I don't see a downloads.php in my source tree. I have a sneaking suspicion that when I originally cloned the source tree there were options of what parts to clone, and one of them was website. Is that the case? If that is the case, can someone give me a hint of how to tell git to add "website" ...

Re: Links on the download page hardly visible

Hmmm... I don't know where any of the web pages are.
Are they all gitted up and mods would need to be submitted as for source code?
But I don't see a downloads.php in my source tree.

Re: Wrong WIKI content for PART > SLICE

Have any of you guys ever tried the What's This button? Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who does, and it's like for everybody else I speak Martian. :? In fact, it's the only "What's this" I've ever used that is useful. Usually things like that pop up a one-liner that I read and say, "Well, y...

I don't think that anybody can change the css file for the website, you may need Yorik for that.
I think I can do it without access to the css. Since it's specific to that page, at least at the moment, I'll see about doing it there.
Busy today, but will get to it asap.

Re: [bug?] dimension constraints accept unitless values as mm

Excellent, Thanks. Easy to reproduce with the last example.
Sounds like a bug to me, but I don't think I'm qualified to proclaim it as such.

However, I will document it.

Re: Online Help Toc

Regarding external workbenches: are you using a 0.18 development build? It has a new Start Page with a "Help" tab where external addons are listed, if you authorize FreeCAD to connect to the Internet. See the bottom right text block in the screenshot below. Question: are external workbenches guaran...
