Re: More Weird Behavior from the Draft WB: Memory Leak?

I can confirm that the memory usage goes up by ~25MB. But when repeating this snippets several times the memory usage stays at the same level. And the same behaviour can be observed when running this little snippet: for i in range(1000000): c = i So, this means it's something completely outside the...

Re: kicad StepUp: ECAD MCAD bidirectional collaboration

Impressive!

Now, KiCAD has its own global adjustments about solder masks, etc. Can you define a solder mask while working in FreeCAD? How would/could interact with KiCAD's adjustments?

Re: More Weird Behavior from the Draft WB: Memory Leak?

Boy, this forum is very quick! I recalled my posting to add this info, and while I was doing that, you responded. I made some other changes to the HTML tags to improve readability. Basically, I import an existing small file and then use the Draft WB. As it hunts for snap points, the memory footprint...

More Weird Behavior from the Draft WB: Memory Leak?

Last year, I posted about the problem of snap points in the Draft WB (the don't work on multi-parts). However, in the most recent release of FC17 (as of Feb. 7, 2018), I observed the following: The snap points seem to work even on a multi-part if there is no Origin block (they still don't if there i...

Re: Dimension "Snap Points" in Draft WB in Imported STEP File

should @cflin or me file a bug at mantis?
I would suggest to open a new ticket instead...
I concur that a new bug should be filed. Since I have never used mantis before, could you, easyw-fc, file it?

Re: Dimension "Snap Points" in Draft WB in Imported STEP File

Could I posted about and issue #1951 be ultimately related?

Re: Dimension "Snap Points" in Draft WB in Imported STEP File

I can confirm that I cannot get the Draft dimension tool to snap in easyw-fc's file above. I guess my celebration was premature. I did some further checking with my files and can present two STEP files, one on which snapping works and one on which it doesn't. Both files seem to show two very similar...

Re: MACRO:Work Feature 2014_12

Hi all, Since I am new to the FreeCAD forums, I am not sure I am doing this correctly. I do not want to respond to any posting; I want to initiate a new one, but I see only one button, "Post Respond." Anyway, my question is how to increase the decimal precision of the WorkFeature output. For example...

Re: Very Weird Sketcher Behavior

OK, I think that now I see where these "mysterious" bsplines came from. DeepSOIC shows the bolt as viewed, orthographically, off the z-direction . The edges he has marked are, indeed, straight. However, when I initiated the sketch by selecting facebind on the flat annulus of the head, the orthograph...

Re: Dimension "Snap Points" in Draft WB in Imported STEP File

Well, NormanC, long shot or not, it worked! Or so it seems so far, at least. There is an additional file which seems to be autogenerated by FC, ' ~/.config/FreeCAD/FreeCAD.conf '. I cleaned that file, too, for good measure. Now, the only kind of weird thing is that for the diameter (or radius—with S...
