Re: Forum lists non existant unread tickets

Any idea if there is any problem if I just resynchronise all forums? No idea what happens when doing it on all forums and how long it takes. So, it's probably better to do it only on the forum where we have seen problems. I see now that Werner deleted the ghost posts yesterday, well 20th Jan 21. No...

Unfortunately, on the Install/Compile forum there is no such "Resynchronize" link
Ah, there is a yellow refresh button to do that.

Re: Forum lists non existant unread tickets

We once had the same problem and I found a solution like below: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2155721 Since it would be tedious to delete 10k topics, I share another solution, that has actually worked: open ACP -> forums -> open the forum in question -> click "resynchronize" this h...

Re: 3D Hülle in 3D Volumenkörper umwandeln

Die Frage ist, ob es sinnvoller ist, einen reinen Mesh-Modeller zu nehmen. Eventuell hat Blender oder MeshLab in dieser Richtung was zu bieten.

Re: Where does FreeCAD look for the decimal separator?

for some strange reason, my FreeCAD install decided to use a comma instead of a dot as decimal separator and has been absolutely reluctant to change back. And I can't figure out where FreeCAD is getting the info from to use a comma. FreeCAD uses the Qt API to get the decimal separator and on Linux ...

Re: problem with object name on new object

Is it possible that names must not start with a number - like Python identifiers? See e.g. https://docs.python.org/2.5/ref/identifiers.html. Exactly! The name you pass to addObject is only a suggestion and you cannot rely on that it's accepted as it is. Always query the name of the returned object....

Re: Quality of exported file (*.stl)

NOW, How i can export a "std" file without mentioned problem? First of all, switch to the Mesh Design wb and use the function to create a mesh from a shape. This way you have much more control over the tessellation process (there are four different meshers available) and you can already see how goo...

Re: techdraw with stl files and crashes

What you basically need is a function like this: http://docs.mcneel.com/rhino/5/help/en- ... utline.htm
So, you don't have to repair the mesh or convert it to a shape first.

Re: new compiler warnings for master with recent MSVC

I only installed the monthly MSVC 2019 update and get now more than 500 compiler warnings. Maybe they changed what warnings I get since before there were "only" about 200. However, many are for external libraries of the LibPack, but some are in our code. What are the warnings caused by the librarie...

Re: Spaceballs and Joysticks

That is when my Logitech Extreme 3d joystick is plugged in that Freecad sees it as a 3d mouse. The reason is that some very old 3d mouses (SpaceMouse Plus XT USB (VID: 0x046d PID: 0xc603)) are indeed handled as a joystick and not as multi-axis controller which possibly is related to the used driver...
