Re: Punch out holes in 3D part

If I had to do this I would use the shapebinder to locate the holes and freehand sketch the cutout using a standard punch radius. The shapebinder is an exact fit and that's tight. :) Standard outlet punches can do this in one hit so often I don't get too involved to make it perfect because the sheet...

Re: Google Summer of Code 2021 - Call for ideas

How about a toolbar for visualization. This would be a good general activity and would include: 1) create a toolbar and learn about docking 2) create icons 3) learn about coding and the basic structure of the doc, transparency, color 4) I get what I want :) Two good things about this: 1) they can ea...

"model visibility options" ???
If you search most of my posts there are plenty of visibility issues. New users shouldn't have to go thru pull down menus, not when there are icon bars. But I haven't gotten to the point of compiling the App so, there it is....

Re: FreeCAD for the absolute beginner

Part of the reason to quote words "design in place" is so you have some words to do a search. I would say for the absolute beginner, forget about solid modeling for a while and concentrate on sketching. Find stuff, measure stuff, draw stuff. Sketching is probably 85% of the efforts when creating a m...

Re: [LinkStage3][UI] Vertical UI for large screens (4K)

OK, that's confusing. I thought the panel placement was stored in the config files but I get interaction in screen setups between 0.19 and Link. I'll have to go and check that again.

Re: [LinkStage3][UI] Vertical UI for large screens (4K)

The ModernUI has only been a bad thing from my perspective. Dual monitors works perfectly using 0.19 but when I go to LinkStage I get crashes and the only way I can use it is to drag all my panels back to the main screen. There's no way I'm going to go back and forth doing this. I wish realthunder w...

Re: Releasing "Reface3.0"

If you don't mind I would rather leave things here, at least for a while, I have a better chance of getting some feedback and exposure. Is there a better place to put something new? New concepts. Also, I am totally out of my element when it comes to getting things put sometwhere, like Addon manager ...
