Re: Toolbits. SERIOUS EFFORT NEEDED

Well, it's like the old statement (at least in the US) that we should never close the patent office. Certainly if someone wants to pursue a more graphical depiction that is great. I was thinking in terms of the context of this thread which is sort of "we need to get this working before the release o...

Re: FreeCAD modern look script

Sorry, I probably misinterpreted your comment to add to "FreeCAD main".

If that was not intended to mean a radical new look right before a release then I apologize for my excitement. :oops:

Re: Toolbits. SERIOUS EFFORT NEEDED

We may be overthinking this. I added descriptions in all the tool labels. No pictures needed, since I have a pretty good idea what I have available in my workshop. If there are hundreds or thousands of tools it might be necessary. But I would guess that the overwhelming majority of FC users are not ...

Re: FreeCAD modern look script

Lol, no...context: I've been monitoring @dulouie's progress for some time on github (over a year). So it's not a knee-jerk response. We haggled for months on the forum over the FreeCAD logo. Same for icon colors. Now you are proposing a large change just before a release. An unnecessary cosmetic ch...

Re: Path : am I doing it wrong ? Is my object too complex ?

Your file has a problem with circular dependencies. It cannot be used further without correcting the dependency errors. Capture.PNG Those red arrows show the circular dependencies. For example. "Slice" is dependent on "BaseFeature", and if you follow the arrows you will see that "BaseFeature" is dep...

Should I report the crash anywhere do you think?
Nah, you probably screwed up. :lol:
