Re: BIM/Arch development news articles from Yorik's blog

We could actually make a small roadmap... 1) Refine the label property I just added, add font + font size properties 2) Your change prevents the "normal" edit mode of the section plane (double-clicking "activates" it instead). We should find a way to have both. 3) The "activation" of the section pla...

Re: Helping to review pull requests

Sorry all, I forgot to look at this thread... Everybody who asked should now have received a github invite and should then be able to help reviewing pull requests.

Re: Problem with Draft Move + Copy + Undo + Recompute

Everything seems normal here... But I saw that in the past already. It seems that at some point the coin representation is not properly updated, and the representation of the geometry in the 3D view differs from the internal OCC geometry. But I was never able to reproduce the issue on purpose

Re: BIM/Arch development news articles from Yorik's blog

That would be how it works internally. And it would still be possible to continue to do it that way. But I'd also like to have an alternative, better workflow, maybe based on an intermediary view, for ex: 1) You place a section plane 2) by "activating" (somehow) that section plane, you place yoursel...

Re: ifcopenshell not found in AppImage

Fully agree that parsing websites is bad practice. But I consider it more a temporary patch. Obviously we need something stronger for the addons manager, and obviously at some point IfcOpenShell should become properly packaged and easily available on all platforms and we won't need to care much abou...

Re: BIM/Arch development news articles from Yorik's blog

For me the main big parts we still need to address to not have any more shame in calling FreeCAD fully fit for professional use are: 1) Working with big files.This is not only OUR problem, mostly the way IFC files are made. Big IFC files are like 1 or 2 Gb in size, with tenths of thousands of entiti...

Re: Groups, Layers & Building Story

The best answer would actually be: "Use what you find best". You could do your whole building structure with groups. Or use only buildingParts, or a mix of both (my fav choice). The choice is yours and you'll get a totally valid BIM model in all cases. Revit has a lot of mechanisms that force the us...
