Re: Release of 0.18

As written above by Kurt, Ctrl+F5 or Shift+F5 should fix it. It did for me on Firefox.

Re: All models are black

I suspect it has something to do with libpng Why? It has nothing to do with 3D graphics, and this is clearly a graphics issue. Log: OpenGL version is: 1.4 (1.4 Mesa 18.2.8) That's an utterly obsolete version of OpenGL (current is 4.6 - I'm using 3.1 myself), I'm guessing you have some kind of very ...

Re: Old Timer Draftsman stubbornly chasing his tail.

Hello, I already know that what I'm asking is probably no longer considered the 'best' way - but I just want to know if I 'can' - or if I'm just wasting my time trying to find a way. To repeat, I want to create a 'part' or '3D image" by FIRST creating a properly dimension-ed 2D front, top, and side ...

Re: Unknown command 'Draft_Arc_3Points' FC .18

Isn't this a new Draft tool that was only merged in master after 0.18 was released? (Edit: yep, it's only in current 0.19) How did you install FreeCAD? I get no such message with the package from the freecad-stable PPA when running it from the terminal. OS: Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS Word size of OS: 64-bit...

Re: Part Union differences FC 0.17 vs 0.18

Hello juless, Welcome to the forum. I don't think this has anything to do with shape refinement, which only removes edges between co-planar faces and along cylindrical faces. This is an intersecting edge that should always remain. I rather suspect a graphics issue. The difference between 0.17 and 0....

Re: [SOLVED]New SVG graphics with text are an utter disaster in Firefox

As to why the file Tutorial_Drawing_Sheet.svg may have looked wrong before, it's hard to tell. It's an SVG file generated from TechDraw No, it was made in the old Drawing workbench. Look at the date of creation, it was uploaded in 2014. This SVG displays correctly now with a new Firefox profile. I ...

Re: FreeCAD on the web

There are 20 thousand seven hundred and twenty eight here..... You forget that we migrated the whole user database when we parted ways with Sourceforge; back then, the user database was global to the whole of Sourceforge. There may be 8-10,000 user accounts in there that go back to the SF era, user...

Re: Chromebook installation

Chris, a Chromebook typically runs ChromeOS, a simplified Linux-based OS made by Google which uses Google Chrome as its UI. By design you basically couldn't install anything apart from web applications. Apparently, it's been possible to install Linux apps recently, according to Wikipedia. https://en...

Re: QtWidgets

I find this part interesting - it seems on the ppa that the latest daily posted is from march 15th, however you have something installed from april 6th. hardeeprai uses the freecad-stable PPA, not the freecad-daily one. Right now, stable is more up to date than daily. If I can get any hint, to solv...

Re: Part::Compound / Compound: Links go out of the allowed scope

There is a fundamental difference between a Part Compound and a Std Part and I haven't seen it mentioned in this topic, or I overlooked it. A Part Compound creates a completely new single shape out of its parent shapes. When you change the placement of a compound, the parent objects stay in their in...
