Re: Assembly4 - Attachment Points Changing

During the course of the rotation attachment points change. Am I doing something stupid or is this a bug? This is FreeCAD's dreaded topological naming issue. There is a simple solution in this case: create an additional LCS, set the rotation that you initially wanted in your sketch between this new...

Re: Difference between Part and Part Design workbenches

Difference between Part and Part Design workbenches. Can those workbenches united? This is a running gag in FreeCAD. These workbenches cannot be united, the underlying tools are too different, and serve different purposes. What actually should be done is to better present their differences, so as t...

I need to check if an object is itself an AppLink or not before hasattr().
Type check is simple, obj.isDerivedFrom('App::Link').
Just out of curiosity, this has always intreagued me: why not

Code: Select all

obj.TypeId == 'App::Link' ?

Re: [RFC] standalone measurement panel for FC

0000503 that leads to a thread where I read: Measurement should not be only about linear distance, but about any type of measurement: angle between 2 edges or planes, minimum distance between two surfaces, a few others that I don't recall ATM. Persistence is irrelevant to measurement, although the ...

Re: FreeCAD for 2D drawing

I have just made a sketch and imported the sketch in TD. I see the profile. ... I admit I did not understand your comment about switching to 3D view. what I mean is that once you have imported the sketch into TechDraw, and you edit it, you enter the Sketcher WB which shows the sketch in a 3D window...

It's just unneccessary and avoidable ... Then please elaborate how to avoid it. And not in general terms, but in actual coding. Currently,...
