Re: KiCad and FreeCAD collaboration!

Do your tracks are a solid object? Yes, solid. Not only that, the solid can optionally come from a sketch, which makes it possible to edit the PCB in FC. Doing copper feature and additionally with holes is exceptionally challenging in FC because it needs lots of 2D offset and tangential cut operati...

Re: KiCad and FreeCAD collaboration!

This is very interesting for me. I was going the KiCAD - FlatCAM way for the tracks (eventually needing Heekscad and others). I really like the idea of centralising the milling part in FC. I used FlatCAM too. Got my first PCB milled using it. And contributed a few patches, too. However, the softwar...

Re: Era defining gadget, made in FreeCAD!

The problem is, I fail to find a real use for it. It might be useful as a navigator. But really, what else? Hmm... you use computer a lot, don't you? How would you like to have a computer be part of your body, so that you can use it whenever and wherever your are? This is the future, trust me. You ...

Re: PathGui: ViewProviderPath visual enhancement #625

This does break the regular Path operations. I'm getting this error trying to create a new contour or other operation. Should be an easy fix but might be needed in a few places. : File "<string>", line 6, in <module> File "/home/brad/FC/Mod/Path/PathScripts/PathLoadTool.py", line 104, in __init__ v...

Era defining gadget, made in FreeCAD!

This is my precious that I've been working for more than two years! When I said 'Era defining', I ought to add 'I hope' somewhere, but I think that goes without saying. And I am not joking either. You know, when you talk about computing device, we have those room size dinosaur era, then comes the PC...

Re: KiCad and FreeCAD collaboration!

After almost one year and half, my FreeCAD scripted and parametric 3D models for electronic parts has been merged in the official KiCad 3D library repo! :D Wow, I really need to spend more time reading than coding all day. Look what I've missed. I've forked your repo long time ago, and the StepUp s...

Re: Optics in FreeCAD

Got an image of some stuff through the lens! On AMD Radeon 7700 and with regular mouse, CADRays is behaving much much better, and makes a nice rendering faster. :o That's very impressive! I actually saw this post long time ago, and was hoping at that time I may some day venture into optics. Unfortu...

Re: #619 Made TreeView stable

visit each children recursively (that's factorial n! maybe?) n! !?? If so, it's awful, since factorial of just 13 is already over 1G. And a factorial of 20 will take about 100 years to traverse. Oops, I mean 1+2+3..+n, not multiple, n(n+1)/2. This is the case where all child items are loaded before...
