Re: Introducing App::Link/XLink

There are also some face highlight problems when you do a link of an App::Part that contains, for ex, several cubes. It looks like all the Face1 of the original cubes are highlighted together. But that's a big issue that will be there when we copy a full coin node over and that will need a solution...

Re: Path.Area: Welcome, to the new era!

The biggest limitation right now is that the Z vertical moves downward are still rapid moves(G0). Moves INTO the material must be feed moves (G1) to not crash the tool. I'll add special handling of step down. Any other cases you have in mind? How do I set feed rate (F parameter) for vertical and ho...

Re: Introducing App::Link/XLink

Is it only on my build, that selecting an element of a link to a box highlights the whole link object? (it does report the selected subelement as "Box.Face6", just the highlighting is unexpected) The selection should ideally just behave as one would expect. Maybe you can post a gif or something to ...

Re: Introducing App::Link/XLink

These are not exactly complaints, more like todos. I am assuming that App::Link is the assembly instance (or the prototype of it) Well, this is a thread asking for comments, so feel free to spill your thoughts. This new link thing is indeed quite confusing even for me. For the picture you posted, I...

Re: How do I get rid of this bounding box

Attached (with the problem the other way around). The arrow stays on ccw regardless of which Contour actually goes. In fact, the arrow points into the direction when the Dressup was created. I am checking the file you attached. But all arcs are G3, so it is supposed to be CCW, no? You can see the g...

Introducing App::Link/XLink

Hello all. I am here to introduce a new feature named App::Link and App::XLink. You can try out my branch at https://github.com/realthunder/FreeCAD/tree/Link. Please try out the branch in debug build and report any problem you have. These two features are an attempt to introduce a more efficient way...

Re: How do I get rid of this bounding box

I like it; however, it should be on toggle with P,M,B kekystroke sequence; defaulted to "OFF"; Highlight with very high visibility color like "FUSCIA". The bounding box can be toggled on and off separately in the View property page, IF the selection style is not bounding box. A bit ironic, I know. ...

Re: How do I get rid of this bounding box

There are really 2 problems with the bounding box, one is that it behaves differently than anything else in FC. The old behaviour was preferable because it didn't get in the way. Not being able to select something is a deficiency and should get fixed, having a bounding box pop up is confusing and d...

Re: How do I get rid of this bounding box

I am puzzled about what issues the new bounding box was supposed to solve. I have never had any problem seeing the rapid paths. They have always shown up very plainly even with the underlying object selected. That is because previously a Path object cannot be selected in the 3D view, at least not i...

Re: How do I get rid of this bounding box

Given that the default for all of FC is the old behaviour I think that would be great - and adding a setting to the preferences would be awesome (although I'm wondering if it should be in Path preferences. Given that this is a global feature maybe it should go into "Display" and Path should use wha...
