Re: [Feature Request] Assign Material property to ‘Make Compound of Several Shapes’

Note that it is also easy to encapsulate your compound inside an arch component.. then it has material (that works) and everything.. Doesn't that begin to make things heavier? if there are objects within another object within another object? i was reading how Caroplev was suggesting to make things ...

Is it a real PR already? In any case everyone can always help review by testing branches and reporting problems or say everything runs ok. That accelerates the whole process a lot!
I wouldn't have mind if i could acquire a windows installable .exe or .msi to test it in my computer.

Re: [Discussion] Drafting 2d annotations for architecture

Well, it's not exactly to derive 2d from 3d, or 3d from 2s. I'd like to be able to work simultaneously on the 2d and on the 3d. That is, placing a wall and a dimension ad another wall, without having to take care of anything except having an active Building container and an active Annotation contai...

Re: [Discussion] Drafting 2d annotations for architecture

Do you start with a "floorplan" and then do the 3d work or the inverse you model the building and then make the 2D "floorplan" It depends on the task that the architect is trying to create, both ways are necessary, let me give you an example If you are designing a brand new building you will create...

Re: [Discussion] Drafting 2d annotations for architecture

The goal is not to "translate" the DXF or wathever format you decide to use but use it natively. I think you are doing some good brainstorming already. It should be great to see a first demonstration attempt and recollect some feedback. Perhaps working with dxf and svg in the start and move along w...

Re: [Discussion] Drafting 2d annotations for architecture

sorry for giving this impression, never aimed to this in my life and i will not start now! Nothing wrong brother Carlo, we are all of light hearted spirits so we can indulge on some harmless tease. by the way, as @paullee suggested, would be nice to see you around in https://community.osarch.org/ I...

Re: [Discussion] Drafting 2d annotations for architecture

Good account of FreeCAD capabilities and shortcoming :) Have you joined the OSArch.org ? There workflows possibilities should be discussed. I intend to have another deeper look at libreCAD, Inkscape to do documentation with FreeCAD. It seems you find this workflow not very efficient right? Hopefull...

Re: Trailer Deck

... as mechanical design is not so similar to architectural process?... I agree that the assembly workbenches are still quite experimental, so users need to test this well to know what is possible. But on the topic of Architecture and assembly, I think you already saw carlopav's thread about design...

Re: [Discussion] Drafting 2d annotations for architecture

Having many object in a document could be dangerous, maybe a new format is needed for complex objects. Some other piece of software have found a solution, maybe not elegant, but easily implementable. The document is simply a compressed directory, expanded at opening, put in a temporary directory, m...

Re: [Discussion] Drafting 2d annotations for architecture

100% agree with everything you wrote regis. This is also my feeling. I think what we need to improve this field is 90% already present in actual Draft and Arch code (yorik effort in this 10 years is great and is what brought everyone of us here), we just have to adapt it to be more efficient! If we...
