Re: Adding shape to scenegraph

There are very good resources for coins outside of feeecad, Google for inventor mentor. It explains all the principles and has lot of examples. C++, but they are basically 1:1 translatable to python. As for a shape: you need to get the tesselation of the shape from its build in function "tesselate" ...

Re: Single step debugging python print noting

When stoping the python console during debugging you also block all UI updates and freeze it. Could be that the following after the print statement works, but I did not test:

Code: Select all

Gui.updateGui()

Re: Bugs/Issues Blocking v0.19 Release (+ WB/Addon devs check-in about Roadmap for 0.19 release)

issue #0004534
I think this bug should be solved before 0.19 release. It is rather fundamental, and If the extension framework is wider adopted it gets harder and harder to solve this.

Problem in Extensions when adding multiple python ones

Hello, I've noticed a flawed implementation in the current Extension code (written and messed up by myself :oops: ). The problem comes from the python side of things. I've made a bug report 4534 and here is the detailed description: Adding a python extension creates the ExtensionProxy property, whic...

Re: Need advice on where to place icons for new PartDesign tool

I agree that Add/Sub could be merged. As a little side note: When setting up the Part Design workbench there was a poll in the user base for exactly this question. The majority of users prefered the seperated tools over unified tools, even though it was close: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic...

Re: [RFC] standalone measurement panel for FC

I think a standalone tool is the way to go, it would be super nice! So here is what I would like to have for my work: A single tool for all measurements, which can stay open and is dockable (not blocking the edit workflow by using the task view) Results are shown in the tool, not in the tree Showing...

Re: Helix tool in PartDesign - feature proposal including Pull request

That looks sweet! I like the idea of smaller tools for special purpose instead of huge tools with a million options. One proposal: it seems to be a specialisation of the pipe tools, and also most likely not one of the most used ones. Maybe it makes sense to add it in drop-down menu with the pipe too...

Re: Units entry missing from .dxf file export.

Please keep in mind that DXF does not support units in all versions of its specificstion. Last time I checked two years ago feeecad exported a version that does not support units. That means DXF export was perfectly fine, and the problem was always on importer side, which just assumed units without ...

Re: PartDesign new development, MultiBody and more

It's quite nice that multibody is working in PartDesign, I think that can benefit the workflow in multiple cases. However, I like to raise a question about the UI. The little colored flags are very visible in the Tree, and take up a huge space there per feature. IMHO the multipart capability is a li...
