Re: IFC import

Hi all, today I tried to use the ifcOpenShell in order to import a 3D model (not architectural related) from Sketchup into FC. Since the ifcOpenShell is not part of the OS X bundle I had to install it by myself. I downloaded the official 64bit Python 2.7 OS X package from http://www.ifcopenshell.org...

Re: Installing 0.16 on Mac OS El Capitan

Hi all, the same issue happens to me, even in latest builds of version 0.17. The funny thing is that the crash only occurs on a MacPro1,1, but not on a MacBookAir 2012. Here is the spec of the MacPro: Modellname: Mac Pro Modell-Identifizierung: MacPro1,1 Prozessortyp: Dual-Core Intel Xeon Prozessorg...

Re: Homepage redesign

Hi triplus, And to go a step further: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12264&start=60#p107461 This attempt is about 1/3 done. General feedback was positive. It therefore probably could be polished up by the time FreeCAD 0.17 is released. thank you for pointing me to rockn's proposal. I missed that when reading t...

Re: Homepage redesign

Hi yorik and triplus, I didn't expect that a simple proposal for better readability leads to the impression that I do not respect of other people's work of many years. I thought that my opinion on the current dark design of the homepage may help to improve it. As I see from the replies to my first p...

Re: Homepage redesign

Hi triplus, The site is balanced and nice, there are colors everything is tidy ... Sure why not but you have to be aware of the fact if you will try and build such Web Page for FreeCAD you will likely fail. As what does the trees have to do with FreeCAD and what are that rays doing up there in the c...

Re: Homepage redesign

Hi, when reading this thread I wonder why nobody cares about the readability of the FreeCAD homepage. When I'm visiting web pages with poor readability I usually just leave that page, because I get the impression that the author only has a focus on eye catching but not transferring information. I kn...

Re: Crash while sweeping

Thank you bejant for testing the sweep. I think there must be something odd with my version. I compiled it by myself. Unfortunately it was not compiled with debug symbols. So, the backtrace misses some information. Nevertheless here is it for your reference: Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal i...

Re: Gehrungswinkel bestimmen

Hallo SIG, man könnte die einzelnen Platten mit Hilfe des Facebinders (zu finden in der Draft-WB unter dem deutschen Namen "Flächenverbund") und dem Loft-Tool aus der Part-WB konstruieren. Dazu ist es sinnvoll, zunächst den Trapezhohlkoerper#0 auszublenden und den Innentrapezkoerper#0 wieder einzubl...
