Re: How to select only vertices within a boxed region or ease selection of single vertices?

To my knowledge there is no such tool, you have to select the vertices manually. Got it. And that was the answer I was looking for, as a PR needs to be filed accordingly if it is agreed that should be a viable general improvement (see below for what I'm after). That having said, I don't see the who...

Re: How to select only vertices within a boxed region or ease selection of single vertices?

My guess is that there aren't really any Endpoints in the regions you're trying to Box Select, but there are Edges and Faces? Not sure what an "Endpoint" is here. I'm going off what is stated in the wiki: So, I searched the wiki and found Std BoxElementSelection . That page says: Std BoxElementSele...

Re: How to run Python script in the GUI at startup and continue interactively?

Maybe I mistook. According old thread , you can run the script just by passing it as argument to the FreeCAD binary. ;) Thank you openBrain!! I missed that because the -h output makes no indication of this: FreeCAD For a detailed description see https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Start_up_and_Configur...

Use instead:

Code: Select all

(8 + 3 / 4 + 4 + 7 / 8 + 10.5 + 4 + 3 / 16 + 9 + 11 / 16)*1in
That works splendidly. Not much extra to type. Thanks!

The expression engine is not trivial. I cannot explain it with detail but it requires using a "parser", which analyzes the strings and finds what is what. Simply put, it's hard.
Got it. I had a hunch there was a reason and there is. Thanks!

Re: Entering in arithmetic expression in expression formula is miscalculated

Back to the input expression: Having the user type in "in" unit specifier that many times in the expression is a bit tedious. Is there a particular reason why this syntax was not available?: (8 + 3 / 4 + 4 + 7 / 8 + 10.5 + 4 + 3 / 16 + 9 + 11 / 16)in That means, first calculate the number inside the...

Re: Entering in arithmetic expression in expression formula is miscalculated

What threw me is I didn't know what units were for the expression inside the parenthesized expression. I had to dig deeply in the wiki, and only after that deep dive, did I stumble upon the Units section . And where I would have expected to see some discussion on this, in the PartDesign Pad page, do...
