Re: shadows in the freecad viewport

Re: New Freecad / experienced Revit user questions and workflows on starting out

What I usually do to export to Revit is set the Ifc Type of my object to "Undefined" or "Building Element Proxy" and export as IFC. Depnding on your luck, it imports in Revit without any triangulation (I still couldn't figure out the exact "decision" parameters that makes revit triangulate faces or ...

Re: draft working plane, normal to a straight edge

What we could do it simply rotate the current WP so the current axis direction becomes the edge direction (we still need to define which direction, as a linear edge can have two). The rotation around the edge will be rather uncontrollable, though...

Re: Gutters and Arch/BIM

What I see around is that most people who work with tube networks basically work with linear diagrams: You draw lines (or curves, or polylines, ...) that represent your wires/tubes. In many cases, the drawings you print actually show these lines, not the 3D tube, ex: https://projline.webnode.com.br/...

Re: BCF Support GSoC Proposal

Great!!!
Don't worry too much at this point about these little defects in Qt Widgets, specially with alignments and things like that... It's sometimes hard to get them right, but later on you find workarounds.

Re: draft working plane, normal to a straight edge

That would be an interesting feature to add... But there are 360° possibilities around the axis... We need a way to define the X direction too

Re: Gutters and Arch/BIM

The thing is, designing gutters and water collection systems is a complex thing. Hard to automate, there are many models and systems out there... Basically it's almost the same problem as hydraulics system and HVAC (air conditioning) design: It's all a matter of pipes and devices. - pipes (which can...
