Re: BOLTS Open Library of Technical Specifications

Ok, there seems to be a problem with the Qt version provided by the FreeCAD stable release for Windows. The same problem is discussed here: http://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=981&start=10 No solution yet, but I will try to work around this problem, as apparently many people are stuck w...

Re: BOLTS Open Library of Technical Specifications

Yes, this is the right place. We discovered this problem a while ago, but unfortunately after the 0.2 release. I was not aware that certain Python constructs that I used in the BOLTS code were added only only in Python 2.7. If you try to run BOLTS with Python 2.6, then it complains about these parts...

Re: Makerslide cross section

Hi, I am the BOLTS guy. normandc linked to the GitHub Repo, but I think the Webpage is a more useful place to check out: http://jreinhardt.github.io/BOLTS/index.html It the moment BOLTS only contains a very crude model of Bosch-Rexroth profiles, but I am interested in adding more types of extrusions...

Re: How to call App methods from my Python module

There is http://freecadweb.org/wiki/index.php?title=Embedding_FreeCAD but I am not aware of any other Documentation on this. I would be interested in a list of common locations of the FreeCAD installation, so that I can at least try to guess the correct path to import. On Ubuntu it is /usr/lib/freec...

Re: Regular Polygons in code made easy

This seems to have worked. But this new error seems to be related to PyQt, but I have no idea how to solve that. It seems that PyQt is shipped with FreeCAD, maybe one of the developers has an idea. Thank you for your efforts, I will add hints about the yaml and importlib problems to the BOLTS docume...

Re: Regular Polygons in code made easy

Very good, there is progress. Now there is the importlib library missing: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/importlib/1.0.2 This library is included in python 2.7, but for older versions of python it has to be installed separately. This module does not have an windows installer, instructions on how to in...

Re: Regular Polygons in code made easy

Unfortunately I have not worked with Windows for many years, so I can only guess. While searching for the error message I came across this discussion on stackexchange: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3008509/python-version-2-6-required-which-was-not-found-in-the-registry It seems that installing ...

Re: Regular Polygons in code made easy and BOLTS

Hi Sorry I should have posted my findings sooner but I suspected that I was doing something wrong somewhere! Especially since it appeared to be cured for other users. This is the error that keeps appearing: >>> import BOLTS Traceback (most recent call last): File "<input>", line 1, in <module> File...

Hi,

could you elaborate what the problem was with BOLTS, so that I can fix it?

Greetings
