Re: Adding Hull and Minkowski support to ImportCSG

Well I am no lawyer and having to try and understand this license stuff is a right royal pain in the neck. Note that is the polite way of saying it. Not what I am saying in private under my breath. The functions required are under GPL so Open CASCADE being incompatible is a problem. I assume from re...

Adding Hull and Minkowski support to ImportCSG

I would like to add support for Hull and Minkowski to ImportCSG as used to convert OpenSCAD files to FreeCAD. I am particularly interested in adding support for Hull as it is commonly used in OpenSCAD programs. Currently if a user tries to open a scad file with these functions in them we have to ret...

Re: Refine Shape: OpenSCAD vs Part Workbenches

How could this feature be enabled by default for boolean operations if usually there isn't OpenSCAD install available in the first place? The OpenSCAD executable only needs to be installed if you are trying to import .scad files. i.e. OpenSCAD converts the .scad file under the covers to a CSG file ...

Re: Refine Shape: OpenSCAD vs Part Workbenches

As Keith said, I've seen cases where a refine shape lead a later boolean to fail. Any examples of that? As far as I know there is currently only one bug with the refine shape algorithm. That has to do with a set of cylindrical surfaces wanting to become a full circle. I think most of the problems a...

Re: Refine Shape: OpenSCAD vs Part Workbenches

Besides that the refinement is something that shouldn't be done by the user but should run automatically. For boolean operations we already use it but it should be added to all the Part design functions, too. And I do not understand why it hasn't been done already. I asked for this months ago, ther...

Re: PPA installed version 0.14.

You have misunderstood the discussion Well I definitely remember the view being expressed that 0.14 would initially be unstable and it would take some time to reach the same stability as PPA updates of 0.13. Which is why I was trying to avoid 0.14. You are making a fuss about nothing IMO. :roll: No...

Re: PPA installed version 0.14.

because after the release there were maybe 4-5 commits in the source code and since then never touched again.
So does the stable build include those 4-5 commits?

Re: PPA installed version 0.14.

Please explain what you consider updates. By updates to 0.13 I understood as fixes to function in 0.13. By updates to 0.14 I understood as new function. If my memory serves me correct there was some discussion about daily PPA updates continuing for 0.13 and at some time there would be a switch to 0...

Re: PPA installed version 0.14.

If you want updates, that's what you get. The v0.14 number is a non-issue. It was just bumped up not long ago to follow the freecad unstable releases for Windows. Not what I understood was to happen. I thought the decision some time back was updates for 0.13 would happen via the PPA daily update an...
