CAD/CAM/BIM events where FreeCAD could (should?) be represented

I thought of starting a thread to list events where it might be interesting for someone from the community to go represent FreeCAD, if possible. At the moment found these 3: - Speckle.works meeting, march 10th, Frankfurt: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/speckle-friends-in-frankfurt-tickets-9270014763...

Re: Draft menus

Yes that's "normal" process... features added in workbenches sometimes prove useful for all of freecad, and end up "transferred" to a more app-wide position.. indeed the bim unit switcher might be interesting to everybody...

Re: [FOR V0.19] How do I set IFC attributes that are not PSets?

Since v0.19 all these attributes now appear in the freecad properties, for all arch objects

Re: Draft modifiers recursive calling of recompute when selecting more than 27 document objects

We are busy processing realthunder's PRs. But some are quite complex so it takes time. (It always helps if someone is willing to test and give feedback on the PRs, just to say that it works)

Re: Problem with Draft Text display

This seems to be related to fonts.
Apparently very few fonts on my system are able to display all chinese characters. I found this one that does it partially:

Would be interesting if you can post here a font that is known to display it all?

Re: Arch workbench: what dependency to use to have a correct model ?

One thing that is on my todo list for a long time we should definitely do: Be able to pick only some edges from a sketch/dwire to build walls.
This would allow for ex. to use a sketch to define a floor contour, and tie everything to it.

Re: Draft menus

In the corner of my mind I also have a plan to move the draft toolbar to the status bar, but I'm not fully sure it's a good idea (it wouldn't be movable anymore, on small screens it could become a problem)

Note to self: check if status bars can not have movable toolbars too

Re: mixing IFC/Arch with CAM ? Thunderstrike protection.

Cool program... That could be quite easily done in FreeCAD. (In Blender too) Basically one would need to design a set of objects to represent the different antennas and appliances, that carry all the needed properties, and that can display a sphere to show the effect radius. There could also be tool...

Re: Using TD to create hatches in the FreeCAD model

I made some progress and came up with this, but it still crashes when trying to use it, not sure yet why..
Seems the good direction to you @WF?

Re: Arch Structure with Base and Tool

Regarding ifc export, our exporter currently only exports straight extrusions (profile + extrusion vector). we should actually implement swept profile support for those structures with a tool object.e
