Re: 0.17 & Mac Mojave total crash

For the freezing on MacOS Mojave I have found a hack that seems to work for others as well: start freecad inside terminal. To do so open a new terminal window (cmd-space, type terminal, enter). then type: /Applications/FreeCAD.app/Contents/MacOS/FreeCAD Thank you very much for this excellent tip! I...

Re: Freecad 0.18 on OSX 10.14.4 and Spacemouse - not recognised

Hi Hajduk, I believe the reason is that the system they are compiling the Freecad binaries on now does not have the 3Dconnexion drivers installed. Following Vectronic's instructions, I compiled a version myself with space mouse support, see link below. This seemed to work quite nicely, but may be a...

Re: Freecad 0.18 on OSX 10.14.4 and Spacemouse - not recognised

Dear Kunda, of course, sorry: I just started up the new version and it froze my dock for several seconds. The system was roughly 2 seconds frozen, the dock slightly more. This is the version where the Spacemouse is never recognised: OS: macOS 10.14 Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bi...

Freecad 0.18 on OSX 10.14.4 and Spacemouse - not recognised

Hi, Until yesterday I had a perfectly functioning setup with my 3Dconnexion Spacemouse and Freecad 0.17. So, yesterday afternoon I thought it would be nice to update Freecad to the current release and installed it. (the .dmg file) Since then the Spacemouse does not work any more within Freecad and i...

Re: using sketcher WB and parametric sketch for house /walls

Dear NormandC

thank you so much for the answers!

I will try to form a solid in the way you describe.
Thank you so much!

A shame that this SolidWorks cherry picking of elements (be it sketch geometry or body lines) is not possible.

All the best

using sketcher WB and parametric sketch for house /walls

Dear folks, as we are restoring a house, I would like to model many aspects in CAD. I have a SolidWorks background, so I would really like to use Sketcher and its parametric possibilities, rather than getting used to draft WB. But I am completely at odds how to use a parametric sketch to generate th...

Re: SpaceNavigator - unintended zoom while rotating - win 7x64

Hi Chris,

thank you, I did actually not see that setting before remapping everything else...
So I never tried it.

Will give it a shot to see if it is the same.

All the best

Re: SpaceNavigator - unintended zoom while rotating - win 7x64

Hi, it is funny when using the default settings. Now I made special settings for FreeCad with the following mapping in the 3DConnexion driver, and then it is OK: in - up out - down down - in up - out roll left - spin counter-clockwise roll right - spin clockwise spin clockwise - roll left spin count...

Re: SpaceNavigator - unintended zoom while rotating - win 7x64

Hi, I also had issues with OS X (El Capitan) and the 3DConnexion space navigator. Some movements and rotations are not properly mapped. So, I had to remap in/out to up/down and other stuff. The rotation is still not as intended, but I can get by this through body compensation ;-) I use the 3DConnexi...

Re: [Tutorial] How to compile IfcOpenShell-python for OSX/macOS

Dear Pablogil, thank you so much for the information and the dropbox version! I downloaded the "official" binaries, but they stalled during import of a IFC File. With yours, it worked, albeit incredibly slow. I did not succeed compiling myself. To be honest, I am not sure if I was lacking anything s...
