Re: App::Link as a scripted object property.

I see from https://github.com/realthunder/FreeCAD_assembly3/wiki/Concepts That App::Link and App::PropertyLink are not related. In my Workbench I have functions to create a object GDMLGmshTessellated from an Object with a Mesh or Shape. It also offers the option of changing the gmsh options and perf...

Re: .stp imports to FeeCad fine. Exporting to .stl or .obj gives issues upon import to Blender.

Can I suggest a possible experiment. The latest version of my GDML workbench uses Gmsh to create a GDML Tessellated Object. It also has a facility to convert GDML Tessellated Objects to FreeCAD Mesh. So I would be interested to know if you imported your Step file, selected it and used the Gmsh Facil...

Re: [SOLVED] Looking for ideas to create a surface design on an elipsoid

Thank you, Mario. I'm new to Macros so it looks like you're giving me a skeleton routine that I can modify to draw hex onto my ovoid? I like the idea because working with the current model, which does look the way I hoped it would, is a nightmare. Every action is followed by a 15 minute pause. If I...

Re: [SOLVED] Looking for ideas to create a surface design on an elipsoid

Very impressive. I think if I was contemplating making such an object, I would consider making/programming it in OpenSCAD. I would have thought it was easier to do in OpenSCAD and also to test out variations etc. Depending on what the final objective is, it could stay as just OpenSCAD or try importi...

Tools | Preferences

Just been looking into Tools | Edit Parameters and noticed under Mod there is subitem OpenSCAD with just one variable openscadexecutable. If I check GDML there are a number of variables that should all be under OpenSCAD as far as I can tell. How has this happened? Should this be reported as a bug? S...

Re: Python Scripted Object - recompute.

I wish to have the facility that allows the user to change a number of properties then click on a certain property that will cause the object to be recomputed. i.e. action this via the property editor rather than change properties then have to visit the title bar to invoke recompute icon. I would t...
