Re: STEP file looks differently in FreeCAD vs RealThunder's ASM3 branch

Mystery solved :) With "Use LinkGroup" enabled in STEP import preferences, it looks the same as in RT's branch. LinkGroups are slightly different in the actual branch and in RT branch. There are two very old PRs that would need to be merged to have the same behaviour as the actual RT branch... cert...

Re: Questions concerning the alignment of and alignment with cylindrical holes...

Is there a simple way to reposition the part at a later point in time such that the centre of said hole realigns perfectly with the grid and 2. Is there a simple way to align other sub-parts with the exact centre of cylindrical holes that are not currently aligned to the grid? Any help greatly appr...

Re: Convert Gerber (or KiCad PCB) to 2D Draft

I'm now doing it as follows: @Weatherman are you using PCB Mod or kicadStepUpMod? If you are using the second, which is the one I developed, https://wiki.freecadweb.org/KicadStepUp_Workbench you can import a kicad pcb layer into a sketch in a FC document; doing that for the pcbs you have, you can a...

Re: Failing to Push PCB in KicadStepUp WB

Any changes to sketch shape should be made inside FC and not touched in kicad... this will keep all sketch parametric and geometrical rules applied in FC to the sketch. Thanks for confirming explicityl. I think that is a key design rule to know for working with KSU. this is the consolidated way of ...

Re: Failing to Push PCB in KicadStepUp WB

The video feels quite different as it starts from Kicad. I am doing this the other way around, having pcn and some 3D part in FreeCAD before a Kicad file even exists. Maybe that is a bit against the traditional KSU workflow. But there is a lot of detail that can be taken from the video, thanks for ...

Re: Failing to Push PCB in KicadStepUp WB

First please let me say that KicadStepUp is a really powerful WB and I think it deserves a lot more praise and recognition (there only 12 threads in the help forum about it). I think we can not even begin to recognize the amount of time and effort that went into it. Thanks a lot! thanks :D Very int...

Re: Feature Request: FreeCAD for making presentations.

ping Hi Werner, I'm trying to create a timed sequence of presenting a 3D model using python code... I've used for the example a simple code generated in the report panel doing some very simple operations. If I put the code in a macro and execute it (i.e. from the Toolbar) I get simply the last oper...

Re: Feature Request: FreeCAD for making presentations.

... What I think that could be a good feature for FreeCAD is that: One could select a set of these objects, and sorting a sequence we decide in order for this objects to be shown and/or hidden as we wish. Then after entering into presentation mode, with just (for example) a mouse click, the objects...

Re: FreeCAD Logo Design

The community can well provide and discuss proposals, point out flaws and strenghts, but it was always clear to me that finally Werner and Yorik would decide. As an architect Yorik is absolutely competent to judge. And like iyd2019 I am afraid that 10 people, even if they voted with a sum of 130% a...
