Re: GSOC 2019 Thread (Approaching second milestone (July 22-26) - Second Official GSOC Evaluation)

Hey everybody, We are approaching the second evaluation (next week - July 22th to 26th) I would like to ask all students to write a small wrap-up of their work up to now (no need to be big, just something that explains to everybody where we stand at this point), and mentors to be ready to fill the g...

Re: BCF Support GSoC Proposal

Excellent, you're quickly becoming a pyside wizard :)
Have fun!

BTW next week there is a new GSOC evaluation, I think your work is fully up to date and going well, nothing special to do, but if you could write a small wrap-up, that would be great!

Re: shadows in the freecad viewport

Yes it's realtime... you can change the light direction on the fly (last line of code above). It works like this: to produce shadows, all the objects that must receive and cast shadows in your coin scene must be placed inside a SoShadowGroup, and there must be one ShadowDirectionalLight in that same...

Re: draft working plane, normal to a straight edge

So the thing would be for ex. to select two edges, or an edge and a point... But then, the user could want to place the plane coplanar to it, not perpendicular... I think this begins to bee too many options for the working plane tool. Maybe a better path would be indeed to integrate the workplane WB...

Re: shadows in the freecad viewport

Quick script to produce a shadowed view of an opened FreeCAD model, like this: Screenshot from 2019-07-18 17-52-00.png import OfflineRenderingUtils objs = [o for o in FreeCAD.ActiveDocument.Objects if o.ViewObject.Visibility == True] # gather visible objects cam = FreeCADGui.ActiveDocument.ActiveVie...

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: Speckle and Freecad?

I've started working on speckle support, see https://github.com/yorikvanhavre/WebTools/blob/master/Speckle.py There is not much though, basically at hat time the speckle author was working so crazily fast that the API changed every minute, I couldn't follow :D But we should resume that work at some ...

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.
