Re: IGES export for CNC: file size and resolution

Just for fun, I converted as IGES an M6 x 10mm hex bolt I modeled in FreeCAD (with complete thread). The IGES file is 802KB. The original FCStd file is slightly bigger at 1.2MB. IGES is uncompressed while. FreeCAD doesn't employ 'solid compression'. The uncompressed FreeCAD file structure would be ...

Re: LibreCAD - dehijacked

I really like SVG but i dont think that it 'fits' for this usecase. There are a few possible ways to use SVG: 1. Export The recipient is expected to follow the SVG Spec. We can choose which elements we use. The main difculty is to find a suitible representation for elements not supported in SVG. (Fo...

Re: SVG import

Does anyone know a way to create elliptical arcs in python?
I can imagine to create an circular arc and apply scaling and rotation afterwards. But this approach seems rather messy to me.

Re: SVG import

hi Yorik
I finished the reimplementation of the parser for the 'transform' attribute and included the fix for the empty 'style' attribute.

Re: Text cut out?

I'm able to import a letter, if it's made of straight lines (F for example). Any letter containing bezier curves won't import. Bezier curves shoud work by now. Support for subpaths (holes) is allready working in the stable release (0.12). Maybe there will never be full support for the filling rules...

Re: Text cut out?

In case you can't use a PPA version. You would just need to replace the single file Mod/Draft/importSVG.py with a version from git/svn.

Re: Text cut out?

I would recommend to create the text in inkscape. Convert it into a path and save it as SVG. Import it into FreeCAD and extrude it. If you want to import eps. I would recommend to convert it to svg using inkscape and them import it into FreeCAD. You can import images as background, but you will have...

Re: SVG import

I don't like crafting Regular Expression very much, so i first implemented a kind of state machine. Besides of beeing slower, that should do the job. I think that the handling of the transform attribute needs some care. 1. getMatrix translate and scale don't check if the optional argument for the y-...

Re: Git

It works perfectly fine to create the repo at github by forking danielfalcks repo, without ever fetching/pulling from from there. Instead I only clone/fetch from sf and only push to github.
@jriegel: do you have any other suggestions, where to put one's personal repo?

Re: Git

One short note for those who intend to use github. If you fork an existing repo you can use browse those nice network graph. I would recommend to fork the one from danielfalck. The repo from jobermayer will likely give you (or the integrator) some headache ('warning: no common commits'). EDIT The re...
