Re: Assembly3 preview

@realthunder I was using your latest appimage to play a little bit with the step up WB. I cannot open any footprint with it. Particularly I was trying to open `Button_Switch_SMD.pretty/SW_SPST_KMR2.kicad_mod` with no luck. The only thing I got was the following console error: FC Version 018 VBO stat...

Re: About funding and all that

We have more than $1000 now parked on the bountysource account, and nowhere to spend it. There are outstanding issues that will benefit from a bounty! Offer reasonable money for people that will manage to get their PR merged for the next RC. You have a forum for hiring people to do the work, offer ...

Re: About funding and all that

Look at what just happened here with myself and kkremitzki, he writes something quickly and I write something based on my current thought pattern and don't think twice, later I read it and I sound like a jerk. He felt like he had to explain what he said and why. Oh man! Can you imagine doing this a...

Re: Users feedback about FC

hello. you can have a look ro this poll https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=30542 nothing scientific, but kind of intereting. users profile is not here so it is more an information than a study on freecad use case That is also nice. I miss having two separate polls, one for the profess...

Re: Users feedback about FC

How would you propose to do that? Other than self-reporting on the forum there is no user list. Downloading and installing is anonymous. Gene One vote per installation seems reasonable. It would be nice to have the poll in the start window of FC although that would probably be more work than sharin...

Re: Users feedback about FC

Not so much a survey as a brain dump, but there was this exercise before the start of the v0.18 development cycle: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=26766&hilit=whiteboard That is very nice to see. I didn't knew about the existence of that thread. I believe it is a very good exercise...

Re: Users feedback about FC

What do you guys think? I don't think it is a good idea. Basically everyone developing here knows very well what the users would like to have, however, most devs work on what they need. A user poll would lead to nice results and than they would never be implemented. That is how freecad works, peopl...

Users feedback about FC

Hello everyone! I was wondering if there is any period in your development cycle where you ask people about their experience and what they miss/love about FC. Other than the feedback I see in the forums (which is great but limited to a very small subset of users), I could not find polls or forms abo...

Re: About funding and all that

Most common is paying for developers to go to conferences where they can present on FreeCAD I don't think that would be my choice for funding. How about with 300K, people get to vote (in some way) where the money goes. Each vote is worth 5 bucks. Some people get mutiple vote powers, could be linked...

Re: About funding and all that

I propose that we apply to SFC (it's a simple email) and see where it goes. Kurt, I think you should send the email. Werner, Yorik and Bernd are the top 3 committers on github, would any of you mind being designated as the project leaders to manage any prospective funding? Any future collaboration ...
