Re: CuraEngine Plugin

Hows the part placement portion coming along? Ehhhh, not really going anywhere at the moment. Freecad's placement object is pretty tricky and I'm stuck on a few things. I really just want to get it semi functioning and then maybe someone else can fine tune it. Its a pain to use without a toolbar an...

Re: CuraEngine Plugin

Please let me know if you see any conflicts arising from doing this. Other than confusion when pulling from the git repo I don't think its an issue. A sym link may work in this case and would prevent complications. I plan on adding a toolbar with buttons (hopefully) in the near future so maybe that...

Re: [SOLVED] Determine if a System Setting Exists or Not

Maybe I'm missing something, but when I click on export settings, nothing happens, and when I click OK, I get this in my report view - Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/mark/FreeCAD/Macro/CuraEngineSlicerPanel.FCMacro", line 147, in accept retVal = self.sliceParts(self.Vars.readMisc("C...

Re: [SOLVED] Determine if a System Setting Exists or Not

but the normal way would be to define your default value in a globally visible variable RandomDefault = 5.0 grp = FreeCAD.ParamGet("User parameter:BaseApp/Preferences/Mod/TEST") grp.GetFloat("RANDOM",RANDOMDefault) For the record, this all applies to the curaengine macro that I have been working on...

[SOLVED] Determine if a System Setting Exists or Not

Take the following example: >>> grp = FreeCAD.ParamGet("User parameter:BaseApp/Preferences/Mod/TEST") >>> grp.GetFloat("RANDOM") 0.0 I would like to know if RANDOM has a value of 0.0 OR if it exists as a freecad setting (i.e. it is or is not in the system.cfg file). Unfortunately the method IsEmpty(...

Re: Debian source package for Calculix

MarcoP, What is the result of running dpkg-buildpackage? Did it finish successfully? If all goes well the package name should be listed somewhere at the end of the console output. Also if your not on amd64 your package name will be different. It may be something like "ccx_2.7-1_i386.deb" if your on ...

Re: CuraEngine Plugin

Added combing option under retract settings. As far as the z lift goes, I see that it was added in the newer version of CuraEngine so I'm not quite sure of the best way to implement it. I'll try to figure something out here soon.

Re: CuraEngine Plugin

Just a simple question - when using the Part Position spin boxes, from what is the distance referenced on the part? Is it center of the part, lower left corner, or...? Technically yes but they actually reference the zero point of the stl which in this case is the zero point of the part. So I guess ...
