Re: Part Design Hole - Counterbore diameter and hole margin

I am just reporting this is not working fine. In one way or another there is something wrong happening there. As I recall there was a bit of debate on the forum a few months ago. This behavior is by design and is not a "bug". It would not be my choice to rigidly enforce those ISO standards, but tha...

Re: (0.19) Imperial Decimal Constraints in Spreadsheet

I wouldn't have expected having to specify the unit in the cell itself after having set it in the preferences and in the cell properties. There are cases in FreeCAD where this is not necessary, such as working in the Sketcher or making a Pad or Pocket. But you should *always* see the unit added eit...

Either the web site or the chocolatey script needs to be fixed.
The link is correct. Chocolatey needs to update.

I hope our dev can integrate this in FreeCAD
It is commercial paid software, not open source.

As good as it might be it is quite peripheral to the core of FreeCAD. It clearly does not belong in the standard distribution.

Re: Invalid Shape After Circular Loft

s there a place to submit bugs for it? Sorry to be a wet blanket, but that would be a complete waste of time. OCC has very rigid rules for submitting bug reports. This one-off observation, apparently harmless, would get no useful response. To get any attention it is necessary to run a suite of thei...

Re: [Request] FreeCAD 0.19.1 LTS

Yes but how can we know which WB version was used? Did you read what I wrote? The standard WBs included with FreeCAD distributions have exactly the same version number as the main FreeCAD version number. Updates to many WBs are made daily. I do not believe a separate version number is ever applied....

Re: Avoiding View Re-Orientation When Creating or Editing Sketch

It IS actually useful to be able to maintain orientation of the 3D view. What you want is a Feature Request. The current behavior is what it is. It is not a "bug", but it could certainly be improved. If you make a coherent request for the exact type of behavior you would like to see I suspect the f...

Re: 0.20.24612 looks like not running on win7 cause python 3.9

Just for fun I tried the same FC file on my puny laptop without AVX and with totally different drivers, etc. Still worked fine.

Re: FreeCAD 0.19 doesn't running

If have not already done so, delete your configuration files and try again. It is possible that some "residue" from version 0.18 is not working correctly with 0.19. The configuration files will be located in C:\Users\#####\AppData\Roaming\FreeCAD. The two files to delete are "system.cfg" and "user.c...

Re: [Request] FreeCAD 0.19.1 LTS

FCStd files already include the FreeCAD version. I don't think the other items mentioned, such as WBs and Macros have independent version numbers. The standard WBs match the FC version because they are in the GitHub Master, and that is what is used for FC versions. Macros have whatever the author pr...
