Re: 0.19pre, IFC cannot export furniture and more

I added a generic fix in git commit e21342d45 that should fix the problem for all versions...

Re: Stange behaviour of vertical WorkingPlane

I cannot reproduce the problem, every line I draw in vertical planes seems to have correctly aligned Y or X coordinates... But I notice the normal of the WP is not 100% horizontal (very, very small number with e). Would there be something to do with Draft precision? What's your value? Mine is 6 (Pre...

Re: About recently introduced layers

Yes. As a same object can be both in a layer and in a group/part/buildingpart, the most "obvious" way to tell that to the user would be to have two different controls. Maybe in separate toolbars so users can reorganize? Maybe all the layers stuff should be on a separate bar, a la autocad...

Re: Question on mirror tool

Yes, but for ex. an arch wall can create a new wall from scratch, or using a baseline, in which case it can - in FreeCAD concept - be thought as a transformation. It's not that simple...

Re: Proposed reordering of Draft Modifiers toolbar

Thanks, that's the covid effect keeping me closed at home for 15 days at the moment, at not going to change soon i think. :lol: :lol: So I have to say that vocx is a good company :) Looking forward to have you back into action!

Re: Tranform in context menu for Draft and Arch objects?

Objects can have multiple edit modes. So one "slot" can be used for the transform command, another for the own arch/draft edit mode, etc. But so far I never fully understood how to implement that...

Re: Stange behaviour of vertical WorkingPlane

It depends a lot on how things were created... One thing to verify is if the normal (axis) of the working plane is exactly horizontal. I mean, is the working plane the problem, or that things don't properly "stick" to it? Also, what you see in the 3D view is a mesh representation of the solid object...

Re: Floors that move in sync

You could also use expressions for that. Ex: The Z coord of floor 2 = Z coord of floor 1 + height of floor 1

Re: problem with slab with base draft or with base sketch

Yes, the default normal direction is "guessed" from the base profile. But in OpenCasCade, closed profiles don't need to be ordered in any way. So there is no way to assess the normal direction always the same manner. We could have a test to always prefer the direction that point towards positive Z, ...
