Re: New to FreeCAD

If we really want to get philosophical :) ; What would happen if Solidworks came out with their latest version for $99 per person, $29 per station for schools (a one time fee, no contracts, unlimited). Would FreeCAD continue to develop? We would need to ask again, what's the goal? Edit: I want to be...

Re: Realthunders work

I will be the first to admit. I'm no good at python at the level required here. I wrote a macro by copying code mostly. I can do some modeling in the Help group. I'm not much help but I always try to think outside the box. If we had a crystal ball and we could see two years from now. If we guess tha...

Re: Realthunders work

Thanks, Abdullah, excellent write-up. Since I have a little time on this "Thanksgiving day" in the states I thought I would continue on with an analogy using housing. Lets say I live in a normal house that's built well and is in good working order but it's kind of small and simple but I have plans t...

Re: Realthunders work

I plan to do a couple designs using FreeCADLink, I don't feel like I have a place to put useful comments, like in our current Help section.

Well, I've had my say. Thanks all.

Re: Realthunders work

yorik, What's sorely missing here is people willing to help to review and thoroughly test Realthunder's pull requests. I think this is actually my target for this post, even though I didn't have a total plan. FreeCADLink is an unknown item and needs to be tested. The forum is where we get feedback ...

Re: How do you close a "pad"?

You could copy and paste your sketch, remove the inner portion of the sketch and pad a cap.

Realthunders work

I know there are some strong opinions about realthunders fork of FreeCAD but that's not my target, but it is open discussion after all :) . I was kind of hoping we could find some middle ground here on the forum. To start with could we agree that assembly3 (asm3) has taken FreeCAD to another level, ...

Re: Assembly3 preview

Is there a way to stop the tree selection changing the object highlighted, in front, semi-transparent? I just want to see what is selected.
Pic, unselected on the left and selected on the right.

[Solved] Found Preferences-Display-Draw Styles, there are some selection options.

Re: A thought on topological naming error fixing, the process

Are you talking about Assembly3? I downloaded the latest ASM3 and created the middle plate (highlighted) on the XY plane. I then create a sketch on a side face and extruded, you can see the shape created on the outside face. Then the real test, I went back to the main first sketch and created a cuto...

Re: Lost my Dots!

I had that problem. If I set Preferences-Display-Rendering-Anti-Aliasing to 2x or 4x then the dots come back.
