Re: [Feature request?] TechDraw and Fillets/Chamfers

It's a long while since I've been to Tech Drawing school but to achieve the correct final result both from a Sketcher and Techdraw point of view, please see screenshot. Note the arrowed 'helper' horizontal construction line in the Sketch and the way I've dimensioned the model in Techdraw. To be acc...

Re: [Feature request?] TechDraw and Fillets/Chamfers

Well, it looks a bit like a missing feature of techdraw, but i would rather say, it´s mistaken use of fillet. One could not precisely manufacture this as the radius of the fillet never touches the extends of the original block. I don't claim to know much about technical drawings, so I don't know if...

[Feature request?] TechDraw and Fillets/Chamfers

Hi everyone! When using FreeCAD for technical drawings, I've found it to be a rather excellent piece of free software for all kinds of CAD work. Thanks! However, I've met a practical problem with FreeCAD TechDraw and fillets in models, namely dimensioning filleted edges at angles. I made a simple mo...

Re: [Bug?] TechDraw Detail view chokes if body contains both a volume and a sketch

Yes, it seems that TopoDS_Shape DrawViewPart::getSourceShape(void) const {...} can make a compound shape in a loop by for (auto& s:sourceShapes) { ... ; builder.Add(comp, shape);} in DrawViewPart.cpp instead of TopoDS_Shape DrawViewPart::getSourceShapeFused(void) const making a boolean fuse. Thus, t...

Re: [Bug?] TechDraw Detail view chokes if body contains both a volume and a sketch

Hi, I collected some additional info about the Detail View and Sketches. Interestingly, it seems to be ok for Detail View, if it is based on a View sourcing from two or more sketches. I haven't looked at the code, but for some reason combining two sketches does not fail, so I suppose it doesn't try ...

Re: Opinions on Major Philosophy Change for TD in v0.19?

Would it be possible to update the drawing when the corresponding tab is activated? I like this idea. I mean, who cares if the TechDraw drawing is updated or not, if it's not visible. And, if you'll actually go see it, it'd always be rebuilt and show the most recent geometry. The only problem would...

Re: [Bug?] TechDraw Detail view chokes if body contains both a volume and a sketch

Will have to see if Detail can work without fusing multiple Source objects first. Thanks! Do you mean that way you'd be able to solve the problem completely, because it would make Detail View working the same way as Views currently do? Making a View of a Sketch is no problem, but Detail is expectin...

[Bug?] TechDraw Detail view chokes if body contains both a volume and a sketch

Hi! I found a way to use PartDesign sketches as a helper line system for TechDraw, by putting a solid volume and an unpadded sketch (containing helper geometry) inside a body, and then selecting both of them together for a TechDraw view projection. Works nicely for ProjGroup view, but there is a pro...

Re: [Bug?] Multiple elliptic cuts on different depth levels

This should be sorted out by f10c28fb5b . It was merged to master today. Great work, thanks! I can confirm it fixes all the ellipse problems I could come up with. I tested with a slightly more complicated design, and with bigger iso counts. All worked A-OK! OS: Debian GNU/Linux testing (buster) Wor...

Re: [Bug?] TechDraw Dimensions get mixed up after editing the PartDesign model

I suspect this would be a partial solution at best. If the geometry has changed enough that the old Edge/Vertex numbering is incorrect, the endpoints of the the Dimension are likely to be different too. That is probably true, which would make my idea an incomplete hack at best. After geometry updat...
