Maybe the freecad-appimage repo should be renamed into "FreeCAD-Bundel". We add windows and osx later on because it's a similar workflow to create these bundles.
FreeCAD-App then. It reflects the Linux-AppImage, Apple's App-store, and Windows Apps. Good marketing

Re: FreeCAD as pre-post processor for MBDyn

Thank Zolko, do you see a Synergy here with Jose's work? I was thinking about such things, but I'm not sure to understand what he's doing. My ideas was that Assembly4 is actually, at its very heart, a raw interface to App::Part and App::Link objects, and these objects are placed relative to each ot...

Re: FreeCAD as pre-post processor for MBDyn

I think Zolko may see whether there is (or not) value in using LCS instead of parametric points/nodes. - Are the LCS placement tools better/more parametric than the draft nodes? for me, Draft snap is not parametric at all: when I create a cylinder, and place a point in the center of the face with a...

Re: Version Control Support in FreeCAD

A Colleague from us at Open Source Ecology Germany also tried an interesting approach a some months back might be of help with this? https://github.com/hoijui/ReZipDoc I think I disagree with the premises of this problem, for several reasons: 1) yes, FreeCAD files are zipped text files, but they're...

Re: [Request] File zero / Master zero

That's not correct. For architecture it's super important that the master project has a absolute zero / master zero related to a coordinate system. Especially when placing multiple buildings on a buildingplot. Or doing urban planning. If you want to relate a model to the real world it's importand t...

Re: 0.20.24612 looks like not running on win7 cause python 3.9

2) I insist that FreeCAD not be held back for "normal users" just because of a few "corner cases" (many but not all, of which are unjustifiable) I very much find your patronising ways quite annoying. You throw your personal opinions as "facts" without a shadow of a proof about what you pretend to b...
