Re: Assembly precission

I came into the situation, where both a tiny distance and a tiny overlap were not usable. And I am assuming this can only be solved with more precision in the cad-kernel. I liked to show pictures, but as this is acutally not working, I attached the resulting FreeCAD models. I made 3 sequential cuts ...

Re: Spreadsheet module

The spreadsheet looks indeed very promising.
I tried to figure out, how to set a cell value from the python console, but didn't got it done. Is it allready possible to do this? And how can this be done?

Thanks

Re: Assembly precission

I experimented with boolean cuts of a spring from a cylinder coded in python. This operation is very parameter sensitive. I had situations, where I got one or the other failure depending on parameter settings, but not a good result. My impression was, there is a lack of accuracy in this case. It wou...

Re: Wiki moved - testing needed!!!!

The documentation link from the FreeCAD-website does not work anymore. Last days it showed an error: "user 2.... or whatever has reached the limit of 10 connections" or something similar. Today it gives: http://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/index.php?title=Online_Help_Toc [81512ea2] 2013-08-13 09:32:25: F...

Re: Starting parts

Here is my approach for standard parts like screws. The macro provides four type of ISO-screws in several diameters and lengths.

Re: Need help modeling a spring with makePipe and GUI shapes

I tried to modify the code for making a thread, in order to make it working. I got a little bit further by just cutting only one turn of the thread and then repeating this. Then I came to the point, that the diameter of the helix doesn't seems to matter. You can make the same sweeps from helices wit...
