How to prevent and fix brocken links to external geometry?

Hi, I'm really happy to see the big improvements in FreeCAD, especially in Sketcher and Partdesign over the last couple of years. Thanks a lot! I am still having a hard time with references to external geometries. I understand that it's best practice not to change topology of stuff that you are refe...

Re: 0.17 & Mac Mojave total crash

I'd be happy to help, but even getting FreeCAD compiled in debug mode on macOS Mojave seems to be too complicated at this time. I am trying to compile FreeCAD, basically following https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/CompileOnMac . As from another thread I installed brew install gmsh --with-opencascade a...

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

Re: create lines for cutting

The width of the cut is not critical in my use case but it's good to see development in that direction.
I could not get open sketcher lines working in the path module yet.

create lines for cutting

Is there a way to create (non closed) lines on a body so that they appear in techdraw and exported svg's? I'm looking for better ways to create files for my lasercutter. As a workaround I am creating features and I'd take the created lines as a reference to create the lines 'by hand' in inkscape. Ed...

Re: Notice: minimum macOS version will be 10.12

From my experience most mac users keep their systems updated. I'm rather worried of FreeCAD soon not working on current OS'es. When Apple drops OpenGL support and requires apps to get "app notarization". I'm not a dev, but if I can help testing, I'd be glad to. Also I'd like to contribute where I ca...

FreeCAD on macOS Mojave

Hi, is anyone else experiencing their mac graphics freezing for about a minute when using freecad? It happens for me since I have upgraded to macOS 10.14. It happens on startup and whenever a system dialog comes into play (file open/save/export/..). The mouse cursor still moves and audio keeps playi...

How to create treads / bumpy textures?

Hi, I'd like to add "3d texture" to my freecad models, like a tyre tread or maybe also for a rough matte finish. I want to create silicone parts from an SLA printed mould. My part is close to a sphere. This pic shows kind of what I am trying to go for: http://www.bkrw.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/...
