Re: Units in *.ui generated dialogs

Thanks Ulrich! That was exactly what I needed to get moving on this. I compiled the QT plugin and have been experimenting with sliptonic's dialog and am making progress. The needed information is hidden here: http://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/index.php?title=CompileOnUnix#Qt_designer_plugin It boils do...

Re: Tooltable editor

No, a checkbox wouldn't do the job for me. I definitely need more than 2 digits of precision for one. I see that Ulrich posted some clues to how to do it in the python forum. I will try to tackle it in the next days.

Tooltable editor

I am cross posting this, because I need the advice of folks who frequent the python part of the forum. Here is the ink to my earlier post: http://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=19231 I use imperial units here and can't get around using the tool table in metric for several reasons- 1. I ca...

Units in *.ui generated dialogs

I want to add the user units scheme to a dialog in the Path workbench that was created with a *ui file. The script that calls the dialogs in question is here: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/blob/master/src/Mod/Path/PathScripts/PathToolLibraryManager.py one of the fields that needs units applied ...

Re: center of circle available in second sketch

Welcome to the FreeCAD forum! Select a face on the first pad and then try to make a sketch. Once you are in sketch edit mode, select the icon for "Create an edge linked to an external geometry (X)" http://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/index.php?title=Sketcher_External Select the edges of the first holes t...

Re: Path and openvoronoi

We can't change our license in Path, if we want it to stay compatible with the FreeCAD application as a whole. It is a workbench within FreeCAD that is distributed as such. You could go ahead and work out a method of using OpenVoronoi. Just try not mixing the OpenVoronoi code in with the current sou...

Re: Path and openvoronoi

- Nothing, therefore, prevents you from creating a LGPL3 or GPL3 module for FreeCAD. But it won't be merged in the FreeCAD source code, you'll need to keep it as an independent project. This is not a bad thing, and it's even better for many reason (you have full control over it and don't need to as...

Re: strange convex pockets with circles

Since FreeCAD is LGPLv2 as a whole and we aren't going to change that, take a look at how Yorik worked out his DXF plugin in the Draft workbench - using a method of letting the user automatically download the incompatible code and installing it. I thought that was a pretty slick way of dealing with ...

Re: strange convex pockets with circles

The images that you posted didn't work- could you try again? I think some folks use third party web sites for hosting there images on the forum. And yes, the pocket operation needs a lot of help. I keep getting side tracked with paying work lately. Sorry about that. I would like to connect that oper...
