Re: Feature of history

How is FreeCAD's tree Catia-like exactly? I've never used Catia, I'm a long time Solid Edge user at work, and the FreeCAD Model tree when working in PartDesign work flow is very similar to Solid Edge (specifically what is now called "ordained" or "traditional", we don't have a version with Synchron...

Re: Modelica

The absurd thing about Modelica is that it seems to be mostly unknown outside the big industries and academia even when the Modelica language, its standard libraries and some of the simulation environments (like openmodelica and jmodelica) are all opensource. The sad thing about it however seems to ...

Re: FreeCAD Logo Design

Why was the gear in black left as 2d instead of 3D? In logo design as in symbol design it is common to simplify things, the wheelchair symbol that marks for disability also does not really look like a real wheelchair doesn't it? :) Also, this is not a technical drawing and so Ol, as the author - de...

Re: BOM (Bill Of Materials) function

A2plus is already now able to extract a partlist from all used components and subassemblies. Even without making use of Part containers. Can you show me an example of an assembly tree structure of parts (components?) and subassemblies done in A2plus? Here I did some examples of what an proper assem...

Re: FreeCAD Logo Design

Damn, I also really like this one :) While we had quite a few suggestions over the time, some better some worse, the real problem was that the original logo has a really strong recognition. This logo keeps a lot of that in a really nice new style. Hopefully it is meant to be shared under a commonly ...

Re: Modelica

I suggest to take the time to go over the above links and check around the internet a bit more to understand how big Modelica actually is in the industry. Also, it is not a library, from modelica.org, "Modelica is a non-proprietary, object-oriented, equation based language". From an industrial robot...

Re: BOM (Bill Of Materials) function

Very nice indeed! At the same time it also nicely shows how important the proper Assembly-Part structure is and that constraints (as the mayor focus in development in A2, A2Plus and A3) are NOT what makes Assemblies. As a side note, in building constructions this is normally done not in a BOM (Bill ...

Re: Feature of history

This is basically what is in catia called ordered and unordered sets. In FreeCAD the new PartDesign is basically working like this (in an ordered way) and its Tip is basically what this topic is about. I don't agree that FreeCAD should change to work only in a fully ordered way, but I do agree that ...

Modelica

So, this is not about FEM :) but I am posting it here since it is closely related and can be complementary with it and since I believe that those users that have interest in FEM/CFD will also be most competent using it and have interest in it. First, here are some videos to get a more higher level u...
