measure the area or volume without python-console

Hallo, I am looking for a easy way in the GUI to measure the area of a face of a 3D-part or to measure the volume of a 3d-part without using the python-console. There is an old forum contribution from bangar http://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3804&hilit=measure+volume&start=10 or mrluke...

Re: microns

Thanks this worked for dimensions in the sketcher and for creating for instance a pad. But it does not work for the grid size in the 'Edit controls' dialogue in the sketcher nor in the preferences. I work a lot with units in microns and without a grid is the sketcher only half as good as with it ;) ...

microns

Greatings,

Is there a possibility to switch all units in Freecad to microns (1micron=1µm=0.001mm=0.000001m). I use especially in the sketcher and the Part Design workbench.

Thanks in advance,
Howil

Re: Frequency analysis

... To get the eigenfrequency values in GUI we have to write .dat file reader first. It's not hard, but it takes time (I can help if someone is willing to code it) Hi PrzemoF, I tried to write a small function/definiton to read in the eigenfrequency values stored in the .dat file. Maybe it is usefu...

Re: Frequency analysis

Thank you for developing this nice feature for FreeCAD. I am looking forward to see this in master. What I miss most is having the eigenfrequency values listed as Hz in the GUI when showing the 'results information' and limiting the number of eigenmodes to calculate. Additionally I am not sure if th...

Re: Expressions... again...

Thank you very much for your effort on implementing expressions! This is basically another vote for merging this as soon as possible into the 0.16 master. IMHO it is stable (enough) and as others mentioned before further features could be implemented in a branch. I think this topic is to important f...

Re: Modal - Eigenfrequency - Analysis

Thank you for your replies.
I will test the proposed way by manual editing the .inp file and then visualize the results as using the macro to visualize cgx Calculix results again in Freecad.

Modal - Eigenfrequency - Analysis

Do you plan to implement a modal or Eigen-frequency analysis.
AFAIK does Calculix support modal analysis.
Thx in advance.

Re: FEA module preview

I am really impressed. I did use a older version of the FEM Workbench and really like to see in the provided video that you have further improved it. Nevertheless, I have two questions. I hope it it the right place to ask them. First, I tested the workbench in 0.16 4928 but did not find a way to use...
