[solved] ExtractBlock filter in Paraview not showing many items

I'm new to using the CFD workbench and have been learning how to use it with all the time I have at home. I've gotten a few simulations to work at this point. My main question is I tried to follow this video on how to compute aerodynamic forces with paraview using this tutorial: https://www.youtube....

Python error, cannot load Addon Manager

I found a solution from someone who is having the same problem and I am but I'm not sure how to implement the solution and really don't want to break things. The thread was found here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?t=33429 The solution involves deleting some local python packages but I'...

Re: [Solved] Part Design Part missing "Origin" feature

Part Design Part The Part container is not a PartDesign element. It's a general "standard" element. Its toolbar icon is found in *all* workbenches along with the Group icon, not only in PartDesign. It was in PartDesign only in the very beginning of 0.17 development, but it was changed nearly 2 year...

Re: Part Design Part missing "Origin" feature

I used DeepSOIC's method and it worked right away, I think it's all good now, thank you very much! It may help track down the bug but I believe this happened around the time I selected all the features of a particular part and hit "Duplicate selected object" to make a copy of it. Though I don't have...

[Solved] Part Design Part missing "Origin" feature

I've just been working on a new file and made quite a bit of progress between saves so I don't have a backup save without this issue. Something happened and I managed to delete the "Origin" feature in a Part Design part (the container that holds the X, Y, Z planes and axis). Is there a way to get th...

Suppress Feature

I remember when I was using Inventor years ago it has a feature called "suppress feature" that you could apply to a feature to in essence delete it while not really doing so, so you can unsuppress it and it will be back again. I recently thought about it while designing something that uses a couple ...

Re: Open and Save Dialog

Interesting. It did not persist when I fist tried it but I disabled it just now and restarted and it persisted. I think I mistook it being described as runtime that it had to be done each time the application was opened.

Thanks again, glad you corrected in case someone else sees this.

Re: Open and Save Dialog

Thanks very much! It didn't work at first, than I looked at the dates and realized I had to switch to the Daily release. I got it to run on startup and in case anyone was curious this is how I did it: -Installed the Autoload add-on from the add-on manager. -Created a macro with the two lines of code...

Open and Save Dialog

This is such a minor thing I almost hate to post about it. Lately I have been using Ubuntu folder bookmarks to give me quick access to the folders I'm currently using lots. Lots of applications show these when you go to open/save a file. This isn't the case with FreeCAD and I'm not sure why. It's re...
