Re: addCommand: How to address variables of instance?

... Although never used so far but a Python command class could be implemented to have arguments in its __init__ method. But this would cause problems because PythonCommand::Activated() wouldn't know which arguments this should be. I need to check this because in the Draft workbench I think we have...

Re: How often does FreeCAD crash

... Any thoughts? It doesn't crash a lot if you don't use a lot of boolean operations. Boolean operations come from the internal OCCT libraries; these are things like fillets and dress-up operations. If you constantly apply these things, and then go back, and delete previous feature s, and apply ag...

Re: Let's talk about errors and warnings.

Green = No message, all is as expected Yellow = Warning: Potentially an issue that needs the users attention Red = Error: The user needs to correct something before the code can return a result. I tend to agree with this paradigm, and disagree a bit with chrisb. In my opinion, the error should be r...

Re: FreeCAD Logo Design

Also here are 2 other concepts I came up with while brainstorming. I like the one on the left. Gregory_logo.png I ditches the explicit "F", but keeps the general shapes, colors, and gear. It looks nice. I don't like the ones based on the coordinate axes; they lack "meat" in the middle. They look a ...

Re: FreeCAD Logo Design

I also played around with a version of the 3D logo concept I previously posted. I like these propositions. Maybe a bit darker and thicker outline would be better so that the figure really stands out. baswein_logo.png baswein_logo3D_FreeCAD_logo.png It keeps the basic shape that we know, but it also...

Re: [sketcher feature request] auto constraints symmetry

When I make an "item" (edge, circle, etc.) symmetric against a given axis, I would expect that the "created" nodes would be automatically constrained as symmetric Well, you didn't provide this explanation in your first post, so you left us wondering what you actually meant. I think those operations...

Re: best way to store settings for a dialog created by a macro so they are associated with a document?

... ( this allows saving settings on per document basis, would also be good if there were a way to save global settings ) Global settings can be handled by parameters. See the Parameter editor . Saving the view and restoring it, is essentially what the Draft SetWorkingPlaneProxy does. You could ins...

Re: addCommand: How to address variables of instance?

No, FreeCAD keeps a reference to the Python command object passed with FreeCADGui.addCommand. Internally a C++ wrapper is instantiated that is derived from the C++ class Gui::Command and this wrapper invokes the appropriate functions of the Python object... Yes, but does the wrapper call __init__ a...

Re: What is the best way to compile a standalone tool?

... How should I deactivate within Visual Studio when compiling? The build system that FreeCAD uses is CMake, which contains a toplevel CMakeLists.txt file. When this is imported, it should show you a list of variables that you can set to control the parts of FreeCAD that are compiled. See the info...

Wouldn't it be possible to automatically create those constraints?
How would the sketcher know that you want a symmetric constraint and not just a regular node?
