Re: Modeling a Torsion Spring

This is pretty fun! Let me throw out an additional challenge: I've been seeing videos around of DIY CNC wire benders like this , this and this one that can't do 3D bends I haven't seen any open source software to generate the gcode for these. So, maybe we want to add a wire-bending operation to the ...

Re: Modeling a Torsion Spring

Nice work! I only see one teensy problem: Squeezing the legs will make the spring tighter not looser. :lol:

Re: I Cant see syntax error with "else:"

Hi marvinscav, That book was published by Packt Publishing in 2012. It was written targeting the (at that time) stable version 0.12. Suffice to say a LOT has changed since then and we're nearing completion on version 0.19. Packt has not shown any interest in revising the book. I wrote a new book tar...

Modeling a Torsion Spring

I made a video about modeling this torsion spring. I knew I some rough parts to my method and also knew the youtube community would contribute helpful advice ;) They did. And almost all of it was really helpful. I'm posting here so viewers have an additional place to comment and to upload files. htt...

Re: CADCloud

Hey Jean-Marie, I was fascinated by this idea at FOSDEM. It's very cool that you decided to open-source it. Do you have any more documentation on deploying a private install? It might be cool for someone to build a docker image that anyone could put up quickly to experiment with or use in-house. I'm...

Re: Wiki Path Postprocessor Customization

I modified the file thinking this will auto generate the output file upon postprocessing, but so far I come up with the same file regardless of my modifications. The post-processor is a python module so it needs to be reloaded before the changes become effective. You can either restart FreeCAD, or ...
