Re: Steel Stair Generator

Yes. What should I do? You may have a look at the ArchStairs.py code https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/blob/master/src/Mod/Arch/ArchStairs.py , see if you understand and would like incorporate your codes :D @paullee can you weigh in on this? How would this macro be incorporated in Arch Stairs code...

Re: [ Comments Request ] Intuitive Automatic Windows/Doors + Equipment Placement

p.s. Noted you are tweaking Window built-in parameter Offset. There is another similar 'Attachment Alignment Offset' in the SketchArch Add-on. You may try to explore any difference and use case :D wall_window_EdgeGroup_Placement_ rev 1.FCStd Screenshot from 2020-12-02 22-46-40.png Screenshot from 20...

Re: [ Comments Request ] Intuitive Automatic Windows/Doors + Equipment Placement

But if you change the wall alignment let's say from "Center" to "Right" then the wall placement changes accordingly but the absolute placement of the window remains the same. I would expect also the window to follow the wall movement ... or am I getting something wrong? :geek: Thanks for testing ag...

Re: [ Comments Request ] Intuitive Automatic Windows/Doors + Equipment Placement

In the meantime I also learned how to stick windows on inner/outer wall edges by using the option AttachmentAlgnment=Edge and specifying a proper value for AttachmentAlignmentOffset. Once you have found your way around all these variables or alternatively we will find a more intuitive way to handle...

Re: [ Comments Request ] Intuitive Automatic Windows/Doors + Equipment Placement

Hi @paullee! Sorry for not being clearer :oops: . Here a more detailed version of what I was doing: No problem, I see your confusion by looking at your model :) Remember the placement is all relative to the original 'Window' object itself, and the Edge in Sketch, and parameters like 'AttachmentAlig...

Re: It is possible use all FreeCAD objects for Parametric Design?

Placing a Window 'parametrically' is a real challenge in FC, one of the reason being 'toponaming' problem. In Realthunder's branch of FC, you may try to do workflow that which is theoretically possible - one way is that you can try attach the base Sketch to the Wall. The thing is - when you attach t...
