Re: opinion wanted: deny to change single dimension orientation

- remove the possibility to set the style for single dimensions I don't say this lightly but this would be a show stopper for me, in the UK we are now generally ISO compliant but there's still plenty of people/SME's who use older English/British standards when we were all imperial units based (ther...

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

after updating your SketchArch WB and creating a SketchArch object but get this error messages: Thanks for testing :) Seems nothing here, maybe I'll check the file I post here. I'm guessing both of you are not aware of @ChrisG's feedback regarding Sketcher recent changes and possible fix: https://f...

Re: Recent Sketcher Performance Degradation

Be careful with such comparisons! Your old daily FreeCAD build obviously is from the PPA that creates a Release build and thus has enabled some optimization while your local build isn't a Release build without any optimization. I did not realise that one was a debug build @wmayer, every day is a le...

Re: A2+: how to set the distance between two parallel axis?

What if I switch to Assembly 4? I will have more options there? Can't comment on Assembly 4, I tried it in it's early days but gave up. Personally for realistic animations I've moved to rigging in Blender for hydraulics, car suspension etc using models created in FreeCAD and imported into Blender 2...

Re: Recent Sketcher Performance Degradation

Just to account for my paranoia, I tried renaming my config files and then I completely deleted my source and build folders before starting compile routine from scratch. The result of this was no improvement still very slooooooow with build rev 23495 and still (relatively) speedy using my old Daily ...

Re: A2+: how to set the distance between two parallel axis?

The only way I'm aware of is to use a Sketch in your assembly project file with two circles and a connecting line which you can constrain to the correct length and use an angle constraint if required. When you click one circle and the corresponding axis face you will then get the option for the Poin...

Recent Sketcher Performance Degradation

I re-compiled FreeCAD this morning before I had a new (simple) model to create. As I constructed the one and only sketch I was presented with a stuttering response from Sketcher/Solver. Therefore I decided to give some accurate evidence based feedback. Using the below macro (after opening a new docu...

Re: Constraint icons size at Sketcher edit

You might quickly jump to the solution of making an additional user setting "scale factor" and multiply everything by it. It might work for your immediate use case and other users can change the setting. But it makes a bad UX. Really, IMHO Blender Resolution Scale Factor is an excellent solution, I...

Re: Loft not Rendering Correctly

This used to work ... but the last one I did was in FC 0.18. Opening those older files in 0.19 now shows the same rendering problem. If this was purely a build revision issue then there would be no way I'd upgrade as it would cause me a lot of work but it isn't. I believe it's the version of OCCT i...

Re: Surface illegal storage access

While I can confirm this only fails to work correctly on Windows and I confirm @wmayer's working fine using Linux, I happen to have an older AppImage which does produce an error even though the Sketch Edge is added to the list anyway which may (or not) be of assistance: 09:31:19 6.89e-07 <App> Docum...
