Re: Color Parts

I'm afraid here you are wrong. I use "Revert" frequently after having tested around and I always get the last saved state. I tested with setting the color for the whole body, and there after "Revert" the color is preserved. I'll take your word for it, I was sure it was using the backup file for rev...

Re: Color Parts

OK, there is something really weird going on. This morning, I am positive that when I saved a document with colors set, closed it and opened it back, the colors were preserved. The document was a Body with an additive cube. But I'm trying it again, and now it doesn't work. Furthermore, I tried a sec...

Re: How to start Freecad with Python 3 ?

the Python3 version came with the Linux Mint 19.1 by default That's impossible. Linux Mint 19.1 is based on Ubuntu 18.04, which still comes with the obsolete 0.16.6712 version. https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/freecad You are most certainly using the freecad-daily PPA; it has not been switched to...

Re: Over/Under Tolerances

so using --all uses all revs from all branches... Makes sense. I'll fix that in the build script! That explains it. I had a look at your script, but overlooked this, I'm really not very proficient with git... :oops: Edit: your script is very interesting in that it manually creates the Version.h fil...

Re: Sketcher WB: moving destroys hexagon

Thanks Gene. In my day job, I work with a mature commercial parametric CAD program that has benefited from unknown man-hours of development, but understandably much more than FreeCAD. Yet, from time to time I still get similar issues than the one mentioned in this topic. Part of becoming proficient ...

Re: position text on a beveled plane

What is a bit disconcerting is that some of the other workbenches, such as part design, perform operations on the selected edge / face. So, for example, one selects an edge and then hits the bevel button to bevel that edge. Intuitively, when one switches to the draft wb one expects a similar behavi...

Re: position text on a beveled plane

Normand's demo only works because somehow (it's not clear to me how) the plane of the beveled face was selected. I'm not sure what is not clear to you. In my videos, I select the slanted face in the 3D view before creating the ShapeString. In the reply in which I posted the videos, I wrote: (...) i...

Re: Sketcher WB: moving destroys hexagon

To move a Polygon I'm used to dragging either the center Which is the way to do it, no need to use the Move tool, as GeneFC already replied. using the Sketcher > Move tool shouldn't cause a polygon to become a different kind of polygon, nor cause a polygon to be folded over onto itself. The problem...
