Re: Refine=True should be default on all features

Hmm, didn't "Refine" once upon a time create a stone dead solid? Is that fixed now? If so, I don't see any problem with having it set to true as a default? But what is needed is button to switch off recompute of the whole model when the user so whishes. Today the recompute works through the hole mod...

Re: Hole dialog discussion

Two questions on this "magic hole maker": Will I be able to make a "negative solid" out of this? The solid being in a body where the body have/gets a negative sign? Will this "automagically" give thread dimensions in Techdraw when I choose to dimension it? Both of the above exist and work in "the bi...

Re: Moving PartDesign Datum Plane - Confused About Axis

Since creation and coupling of points, lines and planes doesn't work satisfying or at all or different depending on workbench as it stands now. I'd like to propose a fresh start as per this list for the coding savvy person: PS. Naming shall be made intuitive. Ask here first what we mere mortals thi...

Re: Moving PartDesign Datum Plane - Confused About Axis

Other than that I totally agree with you about the wording used in everything involving placement and especially this "Z-axis is always in the direction of movement". I would suggest the following: For offsets there are ONLY two direction, one way or the opposite way, with respect to its origin. Th...

Re: Surface to surface tangency

Hi mnesarco, found this old blog from China Geometry Surface of OpenCascade BRep (translated, possibly not so good for code reading). Geometry Surface of OpenCascade BRep (original, possibly better for code reading). Further it seams to me that "poles" are the end points of a directional vector rul...

Re: Request for a separate Assy file format

I can not for my life understand how to make several files visible at the same time in the same 3D-view port. :(

Re: Request for a separate Assy file format

In the file 2_Cylinder_Engine1_Internals.plmxml one can barely interpret the principle of "position and rotation" as a long sequence of numbers separated by space. My interpretation of this file is that he experimented with "light weight" file format for assembly. I've already given a proposal for a...

Re: Request for a separate Assy file format

... Assembly2, Assembly3 and Assembly4. How do they handle this? In general they've done the "copy an internal bit from one file and paste that bit into another file", with or without link to the original file. This is all good and well since that must work as well, but, and this is a big but! (pun...

My feeling is that the whole FreeCAD system once was set up by you and Riegel to support this?
To what degree, as it sits now, do you think this is feasible?
What, if anything, must be changed to make this work?
What would you say must be done and in what order to make this work?
