Re: BOLTS ... (Newbie)

No, the idea is that people contribute parts to BOLTS, all data is put into the main BOLTS git repo and delivered to the user on the next BOLTS update (or automatically, if I manage to integrate this functionality). I have infrastructure in place to credit every contributor properly, see e.g. here o...

Re: BOLTS ... (Newbie)

There are a few things on my wishlist: I want to integrate BOLTS into FreeCAD, this should hopefully avoid all the difficulties that you encountered during installation. And of course I want to have more parts, so I will try to streamline and simplify the process for other people to contribute parts...

Re: CLI file conversion

You could write a python script for the conversion using FreeCAD:

Also search the forum, automatic conversion has been discussed several times.

Re: Looking for Hooks

You could write a macro that creates a new document and sets up your planes. Then you can add a toolbar button, so that you can invoke that macro with one click: http://freecadweb.org/wiki/index.php?ti ... _to_use.3F

Re: BOLTS ... (Newbie)

Ok, all that is now kind of expected. Nothing strange here. The difference in numbers of socket heads is because the version I showed is a slightly later development version than the one that is on the website. The errors from the python incantations are also expected because I gave you incomplete i...

Re: BOLTS ... (Newbie)

There should be socket heads. BOLTS is still in development, in particular there are many parts that must be added until it can be considered reasonably complete. At the moment it fits most of my needs, so i don't put too much effort in adding part, but I am happy about every contribution. Due to it...

Re: BOLTS ... (Newbie)

Now I need to know how to place bolts correctly in the holes of the "testing plate" drawing. To do this properly one would need the assembly workbench (which is not finished yet). So the only, but much less convenient way is to modify the position of the bolt by modifying its placement (data tab in...

Re: BOLTS ... (Newbie)

That is really strange. Can you try the latest development version of BOLTS instead of the stable release, a few things got changed since then.

Re: BOLTS ... (Newbie)

Thats good. So when you type this, the parts selector pops up, but there are no parts in there? BTW which version of BOLTS do you use?
