Re: improving performance.

Most heavyweight operations in FreeCAD (basically OCCT-based operations) are indeed performed by C++ code. What you see from Python is a simple wrapper that internally calls a corresponding C++ function. There, there is no real speed gain to be obtained from refactoring Python code. But for modules ...

Re: Autodesk AEC customers demand better value

The main problem we have with FreeCAD in relation with commercial BIM software like Revit is basically the ability to handle large models. Which indeed BlenderBIM can do much better obviously, at least at the moment. But I think we have many good perspectives for the future too on that point, mainly...

Re: FreeCAD partnership with Software Freedom Conservancy

I'm interested to know as well ;) Nothing will change once/if the application is accepted I believe, except people will be able to donate to them on behalf of FreeCAD. Then it'll be our job to propose what to do with money. I've started working on this, it just needs a bit more polish then I'll put ...

Re: I'm (trying to) make my own CAD!

Great! Always nice to see forks, alternatives, other ideas, and all the things that make the FOSS world alive. Keep going! (and keep us informed! ;) )

Re: Qt offering changes - 2020

I didn't know about that KDE agreement, that forces Qt to release with a free license... That's really good

Re: FreeCAD on the web

We definitely begin to need some better "publishing material" (articles to send to sites, etc...). But things are bettering already, the 0.19 release wiki page will be really kick-ass, we have a cool website, twitter account revived (Thanks to @kunda1 I guess?), we're getting there. Writing some bet...

Re: Portability?: Portable FreeCAD Help with DirsPath coding

I didn't understand very well what you need from me? indeed all these settings are specified in config files, they should be fairly easy to tweak i guess.. as for modules, you usually have two modules locations, an appspace one and a userspace one. I think you can ship all the modules you want in th...

Re: Qt offering changes - 2020

Also Qt is used in hundreds of large open-source projects, I think the biggest of all being KDE... Probably it's now too late for them to try to "close" things if they wanted so. The very first thing that would happen is an immediate fork, and the whole KDE community (and us ;) ) would migrate to it...

Re: [Feature] Floor Area Calculation + Room Dimension

Go for it guys ;) I'm totally in favour of making things better, easier, more logical too. Just, it's not necessarily easier to solve... OpenCascade has a tool called something like CellsBuilder that might be useful. You just throw some faces at it, and it builds all the solids it can. Then you have...
