Re: FC18 slow: files too large / PC too weak?

@Freedman Yes I use FC18 on my Linux PC. Your suggested macros make an adaptation to the view property. What is the effect of that adaptation? I guess a high deviation = low resolution. And therefore more easy handling of the files in the 3D view .....? What is the meaning of "angular deflection" (t...

Re: FC18 slow: files too large / PC too weak?

@Meme2704 Indeed, the box and manifold are intended to built from sheet metal. The provided shape is just conceptual for discussion. I am not sure about your alternative design of a pipe array. You are drawing only 24 pipes @ 285 kb (= 11.9 kb/pipe). My array is 84 pipes @ 738 kb (8.9 kb/pipe). So m...

Re: FC18 slow: files too large / PC too weak?

Thanks for suggestions. I shall study them later today. First I give you my design, for better understanding of what I am trying to do. The files can be downloaded from here: https://app.box.com/s/yjqvehn2w9zsmgcwxim5yhh0tfqoakgg (3 folders under a general folder "superheater") Image: https://app.bo...

FC18 slow: files too large / PC too weak?

Dear Forum, I am designing a heat exchanger. My PC is taking its time (30 - 60 minutes) to update an assembly. This is not doable anymore. Are files getting too large? Individual assemblies are ~ 2 MB. I am nesting assemblies. With only (!) 80 pipes the pipe array only gets large: 750 kB. The entire...

Re: FreeCAD 18 upgrade broke on start

Thanks Normand, and all others, I THINK that I followed your previous advice, i.e.: "Uninstall your freecad-doc package then update your system again, this should solve the issue." I did actually remove entire Freecad and updated thereafter. That did not help. But now I did something else, and GOT I...

Re: FreeCAD 18 upgrade broke on start

Yes Normand, freecad-common is installed by the command "sudo apt-get install freecad && sudo apt-get upgrade" What does this mean: "freecad is now a metapackage." ? Some advices in this thread tell me that freecad-common needs to be installed. Others tell me that it should be removed. I tried both....

Re: PPA problem updating to Release of 0.18

Hi Forum, Perhaps we have the same problem. I upgraded from 17 to 18 through the PPA. But FreeCAD is now dead on my system (Linux Mint 19.1 / Ubuntu 18.04). I suggest to read this review: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=35367&start=10#p298604 Any advice welcome, because I need to ge...

Re: FreeCAD 18 upgrade broke on start

Guys, It is a total mess with the PPA (I think). I uninstalled freecad with terminal. And manually removed all traces left (.FreeCAD was not removed apparently). Fresh reinstall from ppa:freecad-maintainers/freecad-stable: Freecad does start, but only 1 WB (OSE piping, where is that from? Were any t...

Re: FreeCAD 18 upgrade broke on start

Sorry Jim, Menu is nearly completely lost. There is no Add On manager anymore. This is the remains: File / Exit Edit / Preferences View / Workbench Help / Help ... About Freecad The essential WBs are not available: Draft, Part design, Parts, Draw. There is ONLY 1 native WB: A2Plus. The rest is no lo...
