Re: BOLTS Open Library of Technical Specifications

Hi everybody, after a long silence in this thread I am happy to be able to announce that I just released BOLTS 0.2. http://jreinhardt.github.io/BOLTS/2013/10/30/First-Release.html It should work relatively stable and provide a number of useful parts that can be selected and inserted easily. I have a...

Re: From me to you: Logos and background

I like many of the thoughts and ideas that are thrown around here, but there is one thing in common for all proposals that does not fit at all in my opinion: The font used is much too light. This would be a good fit for something that offers very simplistic (or dumbed) way to do something or for som...

Re: BOLTS Open Library of Technical Specifications

Hi everybody, I am coming closer to hitting a major milestone with BOLTS (https://github.com/jreinhardt/BOLTS/issues/milestones). Most of the functionality I want to have for the moment is in place. There are a few remaining questions, mostly revolving around license issues. I am not a lawyer, but I...

Re: BOLTS Open Library of Technical Specifications

First of all: Thank you very much both of you for your answers, they help me a lot. So I think I will more or less stick to my original plan, because all the extensions and gimmicks I thought of seem to be very complex or not offering much additional value. Just some CAD terminology: the sketch/Part...

Re: BOLTS Open Library of Technical Specifications

I am still trying to implement the infrastructure to include parametric parts created in FreeCAD seamlessly into BOLTS. I am not sure I understood everything correctly (I am not an engineer and have very little CAD experience), and I have a few questions, so I would be very thankful, if someone coul...

Re: Macro dev help required for part builder wizard

Hi, I thought I had answered, but the post got lost somehow. So here is a short version of it again: 1) Python has very good documentation here: http://docs.python.org/2/index.html The tutorial has many examples and is very useful if you are not a experiences python programmer, the library reference...

Re: Macro dev help required for part builder wizard

I would like to know if you could point me to the right people to discuss this with, or let me know if there is an existing solution that I can adapt with minimal tinkering. I think there is no better place to discuss such matters than right here. I do not know of any existing solution. Background:...

Re: BOLTS Open Library of Technical Specifications

Hi everybody, I just uploaded a new development snapshot of BOLTS to the website: http://jreinhardt.github.io/BOLTS/index.html I am still working on the foundations, but the changes are becoming more visible. Biggest new feature is the possibility to store parts in the library in freecad files. As a...

Re: BOLTS Open Library of Technical Specifications

Thank you very much! That helped a lot. I managed to get my Pad testcase to work with the following copy: def _recursive_copy_with_prop_update(obj,doc): doc.copyObject(obj) obj_copy = doc.getObject(obj.Name) for prop_name in obj.PropertiesList: prop = obj.getPropertyByName(prop_name) prop_copy = obj...

Re: BOLTS Open Library of Technical Specifications

I was too early with my declamation of success, I still could not successfully copy a object with all its associated objects from one document to another. I found out that InList and Outlist allow me to get the associated objects (e.g. the sketch on which a pad is based), and I can use that to copy ...
