Re: convert to solid doesn't work :(

Hello,
I wonder if it would no be good for FreeCAD to maintain with the information of the mesh (number of vertices, faces, shells etc) so it is always available for information, and also for the function to make a check before being executed and reporting a nice and comprehensible message.
Regards

Re: convert to solid doesn't work :(

The problem is different. There is an error when I launch the commands one after the other: Traceback (most recent call last): File "<input>", line 1, in <module> Part.OCCError: Shape is not a shell The problem is then not to report this error to the user. Check geometry shows 35000 faces and 3 shel...

Here is the list of commands recorded in the command window when I activate the menu part>Convert to Solid >>> import Part >>> __s__=App.ActiveDocument.Panther_V1_body001.Shape.Fac...

Re: Document animation : Performance issue

I agree 3D Engine was not the accurate word. Nevertheless it does not change my view on the need of optimization, restructuring etc. It is your baby and I am probably not the one to tell you how to grow it, grow it as you want! Sorry for that. Forget then my thoughts. The problem brought here is a m...

Re: Document animation : Performance issue

Hello, I agree when you want god animation FreeCAD will never be the right tool for that. You will not make Shrek movie with FreeCAD. But When you are designing something it is quite interesting to make some animations, moving the different parts around to see if every fits, if what you design can b...

Re: Document animation : Performance issue

Hello, Sorry for that late answer. Yes the issue is still the same. The problem with the angles is solved for quite a long time now. However, it is not your problem.

Re: Help for transparency, shapeColor & diffuseColor handling needed

I have got artifacts. I saved the project and reload the project with the current version of FreeCAD and the previous also. But after reloading the project the artifact just disappeared. And I have not been able to reproduce.

Re: Help for transparency, shapeColor & diffuseColor handling needed

Today I have had some artifacts a bit the same as you add. The very strange thing is that when passing the mouse on an artifact, many were have been highlighted as is they were a the same face.

Re: Sweep a selected sketch along a path or to other profiles

Hello, Sorry for the delay. It took some time to digest everything. And apologize as I was really upset even if thee is a part of truth in what I was complaining about. Sorry I mixed words.

Re: Help for transparency, shapeColor & diffuseColor handling needed

Hello, I do not know everything about FreeCAD as it is quite wide. And I do not know anything about A2Plus. And may be have I given unnecessary information, and as I did not work on that for few month now my memory may not be sufficient. I am only talking FreeCAD and the way the different parts are ...
