Re: 2 new units schemes for the construction area

I'm noticing all sorts of bugs/unimplemented features, as is expected in such early development of the Imperial building units feature. One of them is odd ft - in conversion display bug. In draft, create a line of 20 ft and arbitrary inches, say 20' 5/8". Then select the line, and in the data view, ...

Re: Compile on Windows: CMake can't find VTK

BTW:@marktaff, when I first discovered FreeCAD I was fascinated by the ellipse discussions between abdullah, DeepSOIC, and yourself. It's one of the things that drew me to the project. Thanks. :-) I'm glad to know I was a tiny part in hooking you. I'm only sorry my life blew up before I could make ...

Re: Compile on Windows: CMake can't find VTK

sudo apt-get install libmedc-dev sudo apt-get install libvtk6-dev sudo apt-get install libproj-dev is working on the daily PPA Worked like a charm. Thanks! :D Edit: To fix a libfreeimage.so compile error, I had to create a symlink (Kubuntu 16.04): # Fix for compile error "No rule to make target '/u...

Compile on Linux (Kubuntu): CMake can't find VTK

I'm have the same issue as DeepSOIC , apparently, except I'm on Kubuntu 16.04. Trying to build a Release version, although Debug would work for now as well. All I care about right now is the 2D Draft using the new ImperialBuilding units scheme. The CMake error: <snip> -- Found OCC: /usr/lib/x86_64-l...

Re: 2 new units schemes for the construction area

Thanks yorik! I was frustrated by this today when I whipped out 0.16 to do a floorplan study in 'Draft' for a house. I'll be cloning and compiling from master to check out this new must-have feature. :-) As to precision, if you go down to 1/16", that is sufficient precision for construction. While t...

Re: Sketcher: Ellipse support

Since the constraints system is undocumented, and a bit of 'black magic', I thought I'd poke around in Constraints.cpp to begin to understand the system. I started in ConstraintPointOnEllipse::error() with a simple sketch with two ellipses to which I applied the 'Point on object' constraint. By valu...

Re: Sketcher: Ellipse support

@ marktaff Hi Mark I've been testing the branch Abdullah asked us to a few posts back.....is there any reason your ellipse construction method has to be major axis? I mean wouldn't it be better if it was "first point - start of either axis" , "Second point - other end of the axis", "third point - o...

Re: Sketcher: Ellipse support

The current code in my skt2_marktaff_creation branch is ready to be pulled as of this commit: https://github.com/marktaff/FreeCAD_sf_master/commit/c656d5165c8bae8f101a2b46af6b12348d06cefe The code ensures that when the major axis length and minor axis length get mangled by python, that the major axi...

Re: Sketcher: Ellipse support

While debugging, I noticed that the constraint solver seems to use only one core (I have eight available). In Solid Edge v20, on my old intel core duo laptop, constraints solve nearly instantly, far faster than FreeCAD on my i7 with eight cores, even when things go right (about 1/2 second). When the...
