Re: Alternative GUI for FreeCAD: Overlayed Layout (Devs needed)

Par example, any other CAD software know how to properly use a mouse, ofering a lot of options for customisation and even some of them having an option to launch commands using one of the mouse buttons. In freeCAD the only option you have is that the right mouse button it is offering a popup menu fo...

Re: Alternative GUI for FreeCAD: Overlayed Layout (Devs needed)

Yeah, bumpy/bump. Seems that there are no developers anymore for the UI of the FreeCAD, and if FreeCAD needs something is an usable interface. Maybe will be a good idea that all the developers to take a break from developing fancy new tools and focus a little bit on creating a working interface! Som...

Re: Extreme Difficulty coming from Autodesk Inventor 2019.

I am shocked at how completely incapable I am of doing the simplest of tasks. I am trying to model a garage, and everything from offsetting a rectangle (for wall thickness), to using Arch (to avoid having to offset a rectangle) has been nothing but an exercise in absolute futility. I'm not even rem...

Re: Cabinet furniture design tools workbench

Another example: There are a lot of workbenches that are doing almost the same thing, like A2plus, Assembly3, Assembly4. We don't need ten different workbenches to do one thing. Somebody needs to be in charge of the UI of this project and structure better all this commands.

Re: Cabinet furniture design tools workbench

I do installed this addons but the interface still seems to be broken even more! This tools are just not working, and the documentation on how to use them is nonexistent! I figure-out by myself that I need to pres Shift+Q to launch the Launcher, which actually it is not launching anything. Just type...

Re: Cabinet furniture design tools workbench

Hi Kunda1. Thank you for the reply. I checked the PieMenu project but it is not working for my needs. Basically that project just try to imitate Blender's Pie Menu, but this kind of approach it is not good for CAD imho. A MM button customisable popup a la Rhino (https://youtu.be/S4i9SOrdevM) it is m...

Re: Cabinet furniture design tools workbench

Thanks. From my point of view there are at the moment only three solutions that one could use as a woodworker: Sketchup, Fusion and FreeCAD. Sketchup is moving in a very commercial model with several of the existing addons (like cutlist) no longer working. Fusion is great and has a massive set of f...

Re: Cabinet furniture design tools workbench

Their workbench, if we can call it that, is fairly simple but powerful. It is mainly focused on working with materials instead of advanced assembly functions. Yes, a nice approach for a good work-flow. The Fusion360 it is more accessible than other PRO level software's like TopSolid or SolidWorks w...
