Re: BIM - New IfcPropertySet possible?

Another thing I had been thinking, but still didn't implement it: The proper way to add, for example, standard beam property set to all the beams of your project, you actually need to add the set to each and every beam. We could use materials for that. That is, allow materials to hold ifc properties...

Re: BIM - New IfcPropertySet possible?

Are all IFC2x3 classes implemented in FC or only a subset of them? FreeCAD uses ifcopenshell to perform IFC import and export. All IFC2x3 and IFC4 classes are supported by ifcopenshell (not yet IFC4-1 and IFC4-2 I think but there's an issue open for that on the ifcopenshell github) so yes, basicall...

Re: IFC files from structural engineering software CSI ETABS

1- all length seems set to default in properties panel and when i change those, nothing happens in 3D view. When an arch structure is based on a profile shape, Length and Width properties are not used. We should of course fix that at some point (set them automatically from the profile)... Questions...

Re: FreeCAD Logo Design

I personally would vote to switch to OI's logo. It is a really professional work and still has a strong connection to the old one. And although it looses details at 16x16px, it is still instantly recognizable. In a menu with 30 apps, you would easily find it.

Why not vote?

Re: Pipe tools in Arch

Hmm indeed, this looks like a bug in the OCC PipeShell algorithm... That's not the first time we see these, and on the OCC forums there are other complaints as well. It is unlikely that we'd be able to do much on our side.. In this case I think I would split the wire into separate edges (Draft Downg...

BIM module development / enhancement

That's interesting. To create the arch model, etabs apparently just "extrudes" the analytic lines. You can see that objects are not well joined. We could do a far better job in freecad... All Arch structure objects (columns, beams, slabs...) have a Nodes property which is a sequence of 3D vectors, t...

Re: Release of 0.18

Ok so it seems really dependent on Qt version, for some it works, for some not. In any case indeed the thumbnail generation is more a cosmetic thing. Tools -> Save image is more important, though, it's a real feature. my native Linux system is too old to have a Qt5 version there Now you got me curio...

Re: Release of 0.18

The way how things work at the moment is the only reliable way to create the images under Windows with Qt5. So, in case for Linux some fixes are needed the code for Windows must not be changed. Ok good to know, thanks. I'll look into both issues later on. Does thumbnail generation work for anyone w...
