My TechDraw templates (Slovenian) - GPL 2.0

There was a discussion where I criticized TechDraw a bit and this came up: 2) Fix the issues yourself. As a Linux coach you should be able to. You will get here all the help we can offer, and would like to see your pull requests. I am currently busy working on other project, but I can contribute my ...

Re: Techdraw - no center snap points are shown

Well, Blender was once a smaller project too (like Freecad) . But they managed to pull the right strings and they got where they are now with right choices and with a long term vision. I personally believe that Freecad can become and will become a leader in CAD/CAM but only if right choices are made...

Re: Techdraw - no center snap points are shown

Well I do understand how things work and I realize that Linux users are in fact beta testers . Some companies even pay beta tester to test programs and tell what is wrong. I am exposing a problem only because I want Freecad to be usable and go the path Blender went. They listened to the users, adapt...

Re: Techdraw - no center snap points are shown

Never mind. I give up. But the fact remains that without help of Inkscape I could never finish drawings for 11 out of my 18 parts in an assembly (61%) . And that's insufficient however you look at it. Just look at this thread for example. And this was only one simple part. PS: If Freecad Techdraw wo...

Re: Circles detected as elipses...

The 3 larger holes are drawn as circles. The small holes are drawn as ellipses (as they should be in a projection). I know that. It is intentional. So how can I dimension this? To reproduce my problem try this... (a) Select the big plane in my model and then (b) go to TechDraw workbench and (c) ins...

Re: Techdraw - no center snap points are shown

TD uses the traditional "+" for center marks. The center marks can be used as dimension end points. Ok I understand this and now I have one problem less. But center mark is only visible if you look at the hole from the top (!) , but not from the side, so you can't dimension it's coordinates from th...

Re: TechDraw workbench - labeling parts of an assembly

Never mind. I created my own .svg balloons which work fine. Thank god! Also I learned that even in balloons I can add editable Freecad text. The end result is in the attachment.
