Re: Sketch to walls

Yes, that's indeed the problem. Walls are based on wires, so we need to extract wires from the sketches. Depending on how your sketch is done, this can be impossible or give unwanted results, because the sketcher "decides" alone which edges are part of a certain wire, depending on the constraints. ...

Can't get pattern on Draft wire

I created the attached document with the script below. I have a few issues. I can't get the resulting Draft wire to display any hatching patterns or indeed any face colour. The created Draft wire also shows 'Make Face' as false, when the call to Draft.makeWire sets it to true (I manually set 'Make F...

Sketch to walls

Hi All, I am having trouble converting sketch objects to walls, often there are walls missing or strange artefacts. I think the main issues occur when you convert a sketch that has a closed shape, plus extra bits, as in the attached file. When I attempt to convert this to a wall the wall object appe...

Re: my 3D model in 2D manufacturing drawings

This is indeed a bug in the OpenCASCADE (which is what FreeCAD uses under the hood) hidden line removal algorithm. It's been fixed upstream apparently, but probably hasn't made its way into FreeCAD yet. EDIT: I've been following this bug for some time, as it makes drawings essentially useless for an...

Re: About funding and all that

Just my two cents, but I think a good way to allow people to pay would be to set up a company (can be a non-profit). It's nice and easy to understand for the tax authorities, and if some day someone wants to pay some devs to do some specific work that won't get done otherwise there's a vehicle set u...

Re: Separating FEM and meshing

Incidentally, it looks like the PythonOCC python SMESH interface isn't quite as advanced as I thought:

Re: Separating FEM and meshing

oh, and incidentally, in case there's any uncertainty, I can confirm that the exported unv from FreeCAD preserved the mesh group numbers which were imported. So that's nice!

Re: Separating FEM and meshing

Yeah, crobar we all are with you. These are great features. Making the mesh more fine where it is needed and mor coarse where it is not needed. Whould be very cool to have such features and Mesh checking and and and :D As you stated someone needs to implement it :shock: Of course if we have all the...
