Re: [Discussion] A different approach to BIM modelling (BIM Assembly?)

Yeah, using only object names could be a good way to bypass dependency. However, two things I don't like: 1) there is a de-facto dependency anyway. Walls need the other one to have their shape right. And 2) A wall geometry would not be self-contained anymore. It would depend on another external to h...

Re: Annotation styles for Draft

You cannot edit one member of the dict (at the moment, at least). So you need to replace the whole dict at once:

Code: Select all

d = mydoc.Meta
d["name"] = "FreeCAD"
mydoc.Meta = d

Re: Wall Placement should be necessarily relative to walltrace placement?

Also don't want to convince you ;) I really like the fact that several options are possible at the same time. You have a point about relative coordinates and "floating" objects, though. I guess it's rather two different mindsets. I like to think of a building as a whole, where I know the coordinates...

Re: how add custom windows in Preset library

One collaborative effort we could do at some point: The doors and windows found in the FreeCAD library at https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD-library/tree/e0d86b81e97e623764f44b4261cdf7a75204d2a7/Architectural%20Parts should all be opened, and the appropriate sketch constraints renamed to "Height" an...

Re: how add custom windows in Preset library

Okay let's go by parts ;)

With git commit bbea2dbb7 it is now possible to use .FCStd files as presets. They must be placed in FreeCADUserData/Arch/Windows or FreeCCADUserData/Arch/Doors

Then we can see about allowing to save a selected window as a preset in an elegant way...

Re: IFC export of a link object based on an arch object

Ok it is also a problem for Arch Refs. I think no need to start a new thread because this one is really about it. Right now in IFC you have a structure called MappedRepresentation: One object can be used by several "instances". A bit like an AutoCAD block. We use that for ex. with clones. This can b...

Re: Blender now supports IFC export

@yorik IfcStyledItem (https://standards.buildingsmart.org/IFC ... editem.htm) has a Styles attribute, where the documentation states "NOTE Only the select item IfcPresentationStyle shall be used from IFC4 onwards, the IfcPresentationStyleAssignment has been deprecated.". In FreeCAD, I believe it st...

Re: Annotation styles for Draft

I generally agree with it (only trying to get most of vocx stuff in so we start on a good base, then I merge yours) You know I'm not a big fan of adding a lot of objects in the tree because it slows down FreeCAD, but that's something that can be dealt with later on and implement alternatives. BTW th...
