Re: Why Do I Need To Post My FreeCAD Info?

Not sure if has been mentioned earlier in the thread but I noticed that the FlightGear Support Forum has a similar policy. Also, this post provides some additional FAQ points. I just can't understand, and am very annoyed that some newcomers (gratefully, not all of them) don't bother reading the "rea...

Re: Blinking model view

I have an old PC with an HD 2600 card that runs freecad (with gnome 3) reasonably well with the opensource radeon driver. AFAIK there is a 'Legacy Catalyst' driver available from AMD. Maybe that is what the OP is referring to.

Re: CuraEngine Plugin

I Got to thinking about it and thought I would check in and ask if you have made any further progress with the Macro? Nothing concrete, but I've been playing around with the 'printbed group' idea and it seems doable. I just have to figure out how to put it all together. I'm ashamed to admit I haven...

Yep. Just have to finish the enclosure for the arduino + ramps and run the cables.

Re: CuraEngine Plugin

Updated the first post with the fix. Settings are now passed correctly to Cura engine. Edit - Another thing I was going to ask - Any plans for a printer interface or just leave it to Gcode output? No differance to me as I'm picking up an LCD and SD card reader. Just curious. Someone was working on s...

Re: CuraEngine Plugin

While it does save the fields, those new settings are not being transferred into the gcode. I am running this through a simulator and no matter what I change in the settings, it is always the same output. So maybe a little more work to be done. ;) When I tell it I want 1 layer top and bottom it alw...

Re: CuraEngine Plugin

Ok, I updated the attachment on the first post. Basically I added more options to the dialog and added code to save the settings internally. Locating the part on the print bed is done with the Part X, Y, and Z spin boxes on the first tab. Its rudimentary, but temporary as I have a few ideas to work ...

Re: Debian source package for Calculix

Do we need a version number to start Calculix? Would be a symlink to ccx possible? Added the symlink. Now it starts with "ccx" or "ccx_2.7" For FreeCAD we need only the solver, don't bother with packaging the rest.... Its just the solver. Juergen, would we want it compiled with multi thread support...

Re: Path module specification

Will the path module have a property for external or internal path? E.g. external profile vs pocket. What about path offsets for tools, nozzles, etc?

Or is it up to the application to determine these things?

Debian source package for Calculix

I put together a basic Debian source package for Calculix. It uses the standard packages for spooles and arpack which simplifies things a bit. Tips, suggestions, comments welome. Packages for Wheezy are available in my repo here . To build: Grab the Debian source package for Calculix then: # Extract...
