Re: Black screen - Draft WB

Hello there looo, sorry for disturbing. Since I think to you as a major expert of pivy, I'd like to ask if you can have a look at this issue: - the user can run Draft WB with FC 0.18; - in FC 0.19 FC crash as soon as switched to Draft; - I suspected the new implementation of Draft GridTracker, so I...

Re: Elliptic Gear

Is there any theory on the kinematics of elliptical gears available. I guess the teeth should be constructed with a moving rack. But I guess this is a quite difficult task to figure out the expression for the tooth-profiles.

Re: glider workbench

Ok I don't understand one thing, I don't know if it's a bug or if I just don't get it, but the exported svg looks like it has no panel or ribs, there's almost nothing there. To reproduce: 1.

Re: Unfolding Complex Shapes

I want to understand and at least give some ideas about what is failing with the algorithm. Unfolding complex shapes is essential in boats, ships and aviation manufacture; clothing and shoes mold development among others. someone know where in the Freecad Git those called functions are located?

I'm trying to install "Plot" workbench into my FreeCAD-0.19. Due to the internet limitation, I couldn't install it through Tools/Addon manager. Some workbench can be easiy installed manually in Windows 10, like the instruction shows: https://wiki.freecadweb.org/How_to_install_additional_workbenches...

Re: Manually install Plot workbench

Plot workbench was hardly maintained in recent times, so you may well face some errors concerning new versions of Python, or other libraries. I added a way to use traditional matplotlib plotting recently. And I don't think there should be big issues installing the plot-wb in recent builds of freeca...

Re: AppImage - Include auto-updating logic in to appimage directly?

Re: AppImage auto-update

If you have to - you have to, it's a pity. :roll: It was cool.

Re: FC Gear Workbench bevel gear strange result

I'm glad that some of the information I provided has been of use to you. I'm very happy I seem to have convinced you about the location of the pitch diameter! Genuinely I am sure this will improve the bevel gear module. ok I added a possibility to introduce changes in a way to not destroy designs d...
