Re: Eigne WB

Wenn du eine c++ Workbench entwickeln möchtest brauchst du noch viel mehr als Qt, du mußt einen ganzen Haufen Software installieren. Weil das so aufwendig ist gibt es für freecad ein "libpack", ein Packet aller benötigen Bibliotheken. Das mußt du nur runterladen und dann in deine IDE einbinden. Hier...

Re: Can I save object images via python/command line?

About the pictures: as mentioned by others, the freecad internal picture utilities work only with ui running. If you want python only, and freecad as library, there is more work involved. As mentioned in this thread before, you could use the coin offscreen renderer. To create a Scenegraph for render...

Re: BRL-CAD Fillet and Thickness

Brlcad does not use Brep geometry like freecad, they use a CSG representation. So everything is stored as boolen operatiins of shapes, and not as curves and surfaces etc. Imho you can also not create this kind of geometry from the brl cad data, intersections etc. are never calculated. For visualisat...

Re: Facebook group: moderation and possible update

I'm currently maintaining the official freecad facebook page. It's not a group, just a normal "company" site. However, to keep it alive quite some dedication is required to post stuff regularly. In a group I suppose the users create the content, however, much work will arise in keeping everything up...

Re: News: Changes to AutoDesk Fusion 360 for Personal Use

There's a window before changes take effect, but yes that appears to be correct. Vendor lock-in at its finest. Such a short window, though, October 1st! Hah! They don't make it easy to take this change. We definitely should use our communication channels to remind everyone to save their models to s...

Re: News: Changes to AutoDesk Fusion 360 for Personal Use

Do I see this correctly, in the free version there is no way to export the Fusion Models in non-autodesk file formats except converting to mesh? So also no way for the users to bring their files into FreeCAD except as mesh?

Re: Scenegraph visualizer?

Toolbar: Tools->Scene Inspector

The only drawback is that it puts the graph into a tree, and hence is sometimes a bit confusing. So a single node apears multiple times in the tree if it is child to multiple parents.

Re: Changing Shape of Part::Feature resets its Placement?

Yes, it is. The Part::Feature placement is always equal to the Shape placement. If you change Part::Feature placement it writes it into the shape. If you change the shape it writes the shapes placement into Part::Feature. This way you have always consistent Placement of document object and the shape...
