Re: Collaboration on Freecad home project plans

PMac: Do you know how I can cut the structural sheathing and other sheet goods like the insulation and siding that are coming? It's easy enough to "cut" the studs by changing their lengths (though very manual), but I can't figure out how to cut the necessary holes in the structural sheathing. Hi Ov...

Re: Collaboration on Freecad home project plans

Hi again OverkillT, I have been unable to figure out a good way to make any of this meaningfully parametric I see this as a sequential problem well suited to a customised macro (or a series of macros or even a custom Python module). Known constraints: Required wall framing size is known. The drawing...

Profile items for selected pre-defined shapes are read in under ArchProfile.py readPresets() as a list of preset shapes for use when creating a beam or co...

Re: Arch move undo doesn't work - am I doing something wrong?

PMac, do you have XMPP or IRC? Never seen or used either. Any recommendations? Not very parametric. Changes in sizes are an issue - eg if sheets sizes, stud sizes or spacings change or window sizes / positions are changed it is a very manual process to adjust such a drawing. Have trialled low-level...

Re: Arch move undo doesn't work - am I doing something wrong?

Basically, I can't seem to find someone who is using Freecad for architectural framing purposes and showing the _right_ way to do it. Hi OverkillTASF, Snap on that. Yorik as a practising architect is the number one source of all things to do with building and is the designer of the Arch WB. I too h...

Re: Arch WB fails to initialise after adding custom profile v19

... This customisation process needs a folder at /home/user5/.FreeCAD/Mod/Arch/ with the customised file profiles.csv ... Do not place the file in that directory; use this one instead. /home/user5/.FreeCAD/Arch/ The code looks for the profiles in three locations FreeCAD.getResourceDir() + "Mod/Arch...

Re: Really Stuck with doing the fence project

Hi Smiling User, Have attached a sample file of how I'd attack this. Used Part Design and Arch. In PD create two separate bodies as the post foot and the post. Note the underlying sketches are centred on the origin. These bodies become your source part masters and can hidden at the end. Clone these ...

FEM Gmsh not working in FC v0.19?

Hi, Have been trying out FEM on a basic cube. Haven't tried FEM probably since FC v0.18 so was refreshing my knowledge of the workbench. Mesh generation and Calculix solver works OK with a Netgen mesh. However creation of a Gmsh mesh runs OK but never appears to create a mesh so the FEM process stop...
