Re: Making stuff available for external python programming.

Maybe this question should go in a new thread. But what is the state of play with Workbenches that are compiled C++ For example https://github.com/McCadKIT/FreeCAD-McCad I don't know of an installable workbench that is made completely on C++. I guess in that case, it would have to be compiled toget...

Re: Making stuff available for external python programming.

So FreeCAD does a git fetch for every Workbench of this type? Every time FreeCAD starts?
What happens if the network is down ?

Re: Making stuff available for external python programming.

... It seems a pity to me that the recommended methods used still have shortcomings and could have been implemented better You should describe what these shortcomings are. It's the only way of addressing them. The shortcoming is that if the user updates a git repository with a git fetch the changes...

Re: Help on drawing a worm gear with its involute gear

Given OpenSCAD is producing the polyhedron with a lot of vertex, That OpenSCAD Hull and Minkowsky get translated as a Mesh. Wondering if there is any mileage in having a facility to select such objects and convert to Nurbs, especially as we now have a Surfaces Module. Maybe such a facility already e...

Re: Making stuff available for external python programming.

Because to me it seems a better way So you are intentionally deviating from the recommended way of installing workbenches? I don't think this benefits users. You should make it easy for users to install and use your workbench; they shouldn't have to require special instructions. I did not intention...

Re: Help on drawing a worm gear with its involute gear

Looks just the same as @qurn had produced in an earlier post. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9wkega8jkc2wayh/globoldworm...

Re: Making stuff available for external python programming.

... My install instructions say to clone the repository via git and then run a script to softlink into FreeCAD. There is a script for Linux and one for Mac. ... But... why? Why does it have to be done this way? Most workbenches should work by just dropping them into the local Mod/ directory of the ...

Re: GSOC 2020 (Voice your opinion and ideas about what to propose for the next gsoc)

There have been a number of attempts at Assembly. I don't know much about them, but would a GSOC on Assembly be a good idea? The reason I ask it that lack of Assembly is often quoted by FreeCAD Naysayers. Would it be too much work for a GSOC? Implementation still has too much to be determined? Avail...
