Re: Debugging of Macros

Sorry to hijack this thread, but I was about to ask the same question.
I get an error, but can't seem to set a break point so I and step through the code to inspect variables and objects.
Is there a separate workbench for this? Or is it all guess work?

Re: A2Plus part placement

Hi All, Me again. I'm trying to use Klaus' script on my test model. I changed the active element in the code from 'star-wheel_001' to 'disc_001' and centred the #position and #center Base.Vectors, but when I run the code I get the following error: File "C:/Users/AppData/Roaming/FreeCAD/Macro/simulat...

Re: A2Plus part placement

Thanks Syres, I found the magnifying glass, I thought that was for zooming in (I was expecting the constraints to be highlighted as soon as I selected them, like the rest of FreeCAD). It is a great program to start for my simple test, but my real project will me much more complicated - it may still ...

Re: A2Plus part placement

Hi Syres, I've downloaded Klaus' example but can't highlight the constraints to see how they work - so I can only guess where the circularEdge and pointOnPlane constraints are. Is there any way to visualise what's going on (apart from looking at the animation)? I've never written in python, but it s...

Re: A2Plus part placement

Well, I was able to move all the parts to their correct position, thanks to Kisolre.
But now I don't know how to make them move in unison to test if the parts work together (I know they do - but remember, this is a test).
Do I use A2Plus or Animation to do this?

Re: A2Plus part placement

Hi Un1corn,

That would have been my next question if I couldn't figure it out.
It is kind of in the positions I want, but I can't get them where I want. That was my original question.

How did you move them into their correct places?

A2Plus part placement

Hi All,

How do I move parts in A2Plus so that they line up exactly where they need to be so I can start constraining their movements?

Modifying a part

Hi All,

I created a part and found the hole is too big - how do I edit the size without re-drawing the part?
