Re: Assembly3 preview

The error occurs because that sketch somehow has duplicated reference to the same external geometry. It does not seem to cause any harm however, so I will relax the migration check, and you'll only see a warning message. I think, the duplicated reference was caused by saving the document in the asm...

Re: Assembly3 preview

I encountered another issue with the asm3 branch when opening a document created with the standard FC version. The attached file was created by the standard version of FC 0.19 (last saved with FC-0.19-21007). The file was stripped down from a larger project, so that it can be uploaded here. When ope...

Cannot use links to body in PD boolean operation

I have a larger model, where I wanted to add a complicated feature multiple times to a body. The solution I found for the task was to first model the feature as dedicated master body and then create some derived bodies of that master body using the sub-object shape binder as base feature. Then I can...

Re: Assembly3 preview

Hi realthunder, I playing with the asm3 branch and stumbled over a small issue: When alternately opening and saving a file in both the asm3 version and the standard version of FC the groups get corrupted. In asm3 they are marked with an exclamation mark and following error is shown in the report win...

Re: New overlay mode (Now ready for testing)

Yes, I myself get confused sometimes too. That's why I differentiate the normal 'overlay mode' and the 'transparent mode'. In normal overlay mode, mouse over will make the panel opaque to avoid confusion. See the picture below for the button to toggle the mode. This would also be the answer to you ...

Re: New overlay mode (Now ready for testing)

Hi realthunder, in the last days I played a bit with the asm3 branch and the new overlay mode. I love that new look of the UI, because on my small screen (MacBook Air) I get much more room for my 3D model. However, during my tests I found several issues: Crash when closing the app: Process: FreeCAD ...

Re: Bug in Freecad 0.19 development cycle - desktop seen through grid

The message does not occur, if I set DontUseNativeDialog to true (see the first entry in the Known OS specific issues issues topic). It occurs, if the parameter is set to false or doesn't exist at all. Thank you for that hint. I set that parameter now on my system. The error message went away, but ...

Re: Bug in Freecad 0.19 development cycle - desktop seen through grid

I played with the asm3 branch of FreeCAD and wondered why the transparency problem did not occur there. However, sometimes also the official FreeCAD version does not suffer from the problem. Now I found out why: If I open my project using the menu "File | Open ..." then I see the transparent problem...
