Re: FreeCAD Renderer Workbench improvements

Sure, forks are always a good thing. Most of the time it ends up bettering the original project. About materials, I guess it's indeed best to tune our minds here first... Indeed it's becoming necessary to prepare a structure for render materials. My own suggestion would be to use FreeCAD materials f...

Re: TechDraw: SaveDXF does not work?

Actually the Arch view since it produces and manages its own SVG fragment, should also produce its own DXF fragment... In fact most of the code for that exists already. I'll look into it when I'm back from travel (next month)

Re: Discussion: convention in printing to the console

Also FreeCAD is a very complex app with almost unlimited possibilities of extension (and wrongdoing :) ). Having a centralized way or screen area where all communication occurs is a good thing IMHO. Otherwise FreeCAD could quickly look like a big christmas tree full of popups, which would also slow ...

Re: BIM/Arch development news articles from Yorik's blog

That can be done already, simply by exporting to obj or dae. But the mesh->to->shape operation in FreeCAD takes time, it could be done right from the start in Blender..

Re: freecad crahes every time when creating a new file on debian buster

This looks like OpenGL not properly set up. Do other OpenGL-based apps such as Blender run?

Re: Discussion: convention in printing to the console

My own opinion is the above... Console Messages, Warnings and Errors are all for the users to see: "Congrats" when they did something good, warnings when nothing went wrong but they should be aware of something, errors when they did something wrong, etc. We should use these as much as possible, as I...

Re: BIM/Arch development news articles from Yorik's blog

Yes, I'm also thinking of that: A Blender exporter that would export a FreeCAD file, already with objects as Part shapes, with inner subdivisions removed. That could be quite powerful.

However there is quite a lot of topology cleaning to do, detect coplanar regions, etc...

Re: Fix for creating/changing colors in material card

Indeed inside FreeCAD float-based colors are used everywhere and if I'm not mistaken, int-based (1->255) colors are never used anywhere except inside FCStd files, but that is invisible to the user. For me the patch looks good

Re: ArchSketch + ArchWall ( Multiple Width ) = Building Layout Object

Pipes could have a kind of OverrideOffset property that works the same way as @paullee's OverrideWidth, but would say which pipe segment is at what height above the sketch. However, you would only be able to make horizontal pipes with that method...
