Re: FreeCAD as pre-post procesor for MBDyn

I have just started a work bench as a pre and post processor for MBDyn. Sounds great that you had the same idea! Would you mind sharing some details? My approach has been to create customized objects in FreeCAD that contain the properties of each object required by MBDyn. Thus, I create a "Gravity"...

Re: S&S steam engine

I have never heard of a horizontal rotating piston, and the link was not that informative. Is this a steam version fo the wankle engine? :?

Awsome model. I am always impressed when I visit the user showcase.

Re: FreeCAD as pre-post procesor for MBDyn

I have just started a work bench as a pre and post processor for MBDyn. I was going to use assembly 4 as a base. I thought the use of local coordinate systems would be useful and I would not need a constraint solver because MBDyn would notify if there was a problem. I also thought it would be diffic...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

Hello Zolko;

Have you tested Assembly4 for with Realthunders link merge? If you do not want to build it. Maybe you can use this PPA.

Would you have the possibility to replace in that file the line 123 with:

Code: Select all

		self.oldLCS = self.partLCSlist.findItems( self.old_linkLCS, QtCore.Qt.CaseSensitive )
by
		self.oldLCS = self.partLCSlist.findItems( self.old_linkLCS, QtCore.Qt.MatchExactly )
This fixes it.

Thanks.

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

pend4.FCStd I thinks I am getting close. I get an error when I try to place link. It seems to be a QT error. Running the Python command 'placeLinkCmd' failed: Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Users\fasa02\Documents\FreeCAD-asm3-Win64-Py3-Qt5-20190703\Mod\Mod_Asm4\placeLinkCmd.py", line 1...

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

Re: Assembly 4 workbench

I had the same problem as dan-miel with windows 10 and found if I moved mod-asm4 directory in the mod folder of the regular Freecad distribution it shows in Realthunders branch.
