Re: Position of a .step file and references - Manipulator vs. Transform

@easyw-fc: I have seen this great Manipulator tutorial of yours, but sometimes, using the aligner tool (and selecting objects in the right order, 1st is fixed, 2nd moves) nothing moves, or for some reason all the elements move together (resulting in no relative movement) . I'm sure it has to do wit...

Re: Step non solid after import, Varicad viewer produces solid

I have the impression that it has been better and somehow got worse within the last weeks. Wilfried I don't think so... from your file it seems the step model has some issues (overlapping or similar) Varicad probably has a sort of auto healing... btw I found in many case the opposite... FC was load...

Re: Ticket #3834 - Loss of coordinate systems during .stp (AP214) import/export

I am working on something for one of my friends. I have created a gantry design in freecad but after I exported it to step, all the objects are all over the shop. In FC 0.18 if your objects are inside 'Part' containers and those containers have a Placement different from (0,0,0), you will need to a...

Re: FreeCAD packaged for web similar to onshape

I will be putting this out as open source of one type or another here soon. For the code I developed and the docker file to build the image I am thinking of using https://www.gnu.org/licenses/agpl-3.0.en.html . That would force any one who deploys as a public cloud service to release any modificati...

Re: kicad StepUp: ECAD MCAD bidirectional collaboration

When I installed kicad stepup it apparently populated the 3D Prefix for KISYS3DMOD. (I don't remember setting it...) - did it indeed get this automagically when I got the WB from AddOnManager? StepUp simply writes the default 3D paths as the ones defined by KiCAD on different OSes. - If the KISYS3D...

Re: FreeCAD exports empty .stp

I'm trying to export a KiCad PCB (imported as .vrml) to .step. Hi, Which release of KiCAD are you using? KiCAD, since v5, can export directly to STEP a board and models. You can use KiCAD StepUp WB for FreeCAD to have an improved STEP model. I also would suggest to have a look at these thread: Tryi...
