Re: unique object id

Is there some unique id like the name of the object. For ifc export we need a id similar to a git commit id. This has to be unique and a object should not change this id during live time. I remember a related discussion earlier, and if I recall correctly, there is no such ID. I think the problem wa...

Re: mass property (volume, weight ... )

hi @aapo I don't know how to do this function, my macro work with an example and not with other sorry mario No problem, the App->Link system is quite new and if I've understood correctly, it's not fully stabilized yet. There may still be core code changes, and I have no idea if everything necessary...

Re: Center of circle relative to edge.

I invite you to reflect on Linus Torvalds' thought, this is what it says: - It's not that i refrain from taking sides. It's just that i deeply blame anyone who tries to impose their morals on others. And you can replace the word "moral" with religion, computer faith, or more. - As a technician, i k...

Re: Assembly4: XLink absolute filepath problem

What other CAD programs do in that case? Zolko already explained it in a very detailed post, one page back in this very thread: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=40403&start=30#p426692 . However, the way other (commercial) CAD programs have solved this admittedly quite a difficult p...

Re: Center of circle relative to edge.

The programmer does his job even if he is not a chemist or an expert in economics or a mechanic or an architect or an engineer etc., he follows the directions of those who work in the field. I think it should be pointed out, that in this case the programmer does not do his/her job, in the literal s...

Re: Assembly4: XLink absolute filepath problem

I'm not re-inventing the wheel, just saying that realthunder's current relative-path solution already fulfills my needs quite nicely, thanks. And, I believe absolute file paths would introduce more problems than they solve. Everything is still relative. The problem with current code (without the fi...

Re: Assembly4: XLink absolute filepath problem

the real-world disagrees with you. Do you mean that FreeCAD should be intentionally made to only work in single operating system environments because some other commercial CAD systems work like that, or perhaps you meant something else? :D Or did you perhaps mean, that FreeCAD could somehow use Uni...

Re: Assembly4: XLink absolute filepath problem

1) absolute file path : this has actually good real-world use cases. For example, for a project by a single designer on a single computer, having absolute file-paths is no problem. Also, for a small team of designers in the same organisation, if the CAD data is in the same location on all computers...

Re: [BUG?] Problem with the default C++ DXF import function

We may never find out, You have checked the 'Project exported objects along current view direction' export option. This may cause arcs/circles to become elliptical. No, it's not only the configuration option. I naturally already tested with and without this configuration option, and there's no diff...
