Re: Path Workbench missing from Freecad Daily

... when a developer creates a new Python file such as this one on 5th September then they are required to ensure that a Merge request is created also on the Debian side of things as per https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=36888&p=313031#p312983 This is not entirely accurate.

Re: Is this a bad bug or something FUBAR that I did to cause the issue?

... I have seen video tutorials do the face-mapping, to me, it seems like the only sane way for more complex things than this box, why is that not a good way to do it, and, when is that the proper way to do it? Attaching to a face is a "bad thang". Read Topological naming problem . This is how it w...

... It was the Addon Manager that worked the magic.
I wonder why it fails when you installed the files yourself and not from the Addon Manager. It seems weird, the error is still there.

Re: Debugging of Macros

... The program I have trouble with only has 35 lines and I know exactly where the problem is - I just don't know why. In that case, you can ask. Maybe an object is behaving in a strange way because you don't know exactly how it is supposed to work. That is, your assumptions are wrong. Ultimately t...

Re: Debugging of Macros

@vocx would you mind finding examples illustrating your point of good coding standards and vice-versa ? Well, that's just general good Python knowledge. Make things small and readable. For example, no more than 3 levels of indentation is good practice. If you need more levels, then encapsulate the ...

Re: Error after upgrading (freecad daily)

Only insofar as new changes introduced in master could cause the packaging instructions in the debian/ directory in the other repo to no longer work. Did you have some other risk in mind? No, I don't have other risks in mind. Probably this is what is happening now, no? The master changed, the debia...

Re: 0.18 DXF import problem

... I spotted the dxf library addon and, after installing it, the import worked fine. :) Oh, did you solve it? That's good. However, if the new file that you downloaded still has the mix of tabs + spaces, the error is still there and should be corrected. Can you check lines 88 to 94 for the presenc...

Re: Circle in Sketcher turns into polygon in Part Design

... Why is this happening? It's quite frustrating. This is normal. All computer programs approximate curves by straight line segments. Why? Because it's more efficient for rendering (visualization). A circle is mathematically defined as having an infinite number of points in its circumference. Sinc...
