DrawingDimensions WB, add text icon T+

Noting happens when I try to use this. Nothing appears in the tree or in the window. I still have to use the Drawing "Insert annotation" tool, not that there's anything wrong with that. Any ideas? OS: Windows 8 Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size of FreeCAD: 32-bit Version: 0.15.4671 (Git) Branch: rel...

Re: Exporting .dxf files

I've noticed you manually added text to titleblock in drawings. If you click on Page object in Tree View there is property to edit titleblock text available. Brilliant thanks for that tip. Where do I keep templates so I can retrieve them when I want them? I've created a template and stored it in the...

Re: Boolean fusion for non solid objects?

Hi sorry I seem to be going backwards. Having understood how to produce a 2D drawing from a 3D model in Drawing WB it seems to have stopped working. I highlight the last item in the tree (e.g. Pad003), highlight the drawing page, and click "Insert an orthographic projection of the part in the active...

Re: Exporting .dxf files

Fantastic!!! I de-enabled the option Export 3D objects as Polyface meshes under DXF import/export options as you suggested and it worked first time! Perfect dxf file opened in LibreCAD! Also the Python script worked and I got 1.38 as you said.

Thanks again for the support. :mrgreen:

Re: Exporting .dxf files

Hi Triplus, thanks for the detailed reply. Concerning the 2 line program, sorry but I don't understand the background. Is it a Macro? I tried typing it in to a Macro and clicked the green arrow but nothing happened. Where does the 1.38 appear? I tried exporting the basic shape without the dimensions...

Exporting .dxf files

Dear All, I just can't get this to work. I have followed two previous topics: "Issues with .dxf export/import using Windows 8 and version14" & "Can't export file as .DXF" and done what they say but it still doesn't work. I highlight everything in the tree I want to export and either get a 1 kb file ...
