Re: Another approach to assembly solver (A2plus)

So deep integration with PG would be great! :) Hope to see it one day. However for experimenting with new database-centered workflows we need very modest level of integration: just ability to somehow keep and retrieve FCStd file contents in database records with some custom fields. 1. It seems that...

Re: WB-BIM(Arch): Array / Copy along edge: unexpected position change.

Roy, thank you for attention, sorry that my ground is "barren", hopefully - not completely. Began studying advised solutions. One of suggestions - over sized detail + Part_Cut... Does it work as "Trim"? It seems, that actual "trim" is available only in: -- Draft([Draft_Trimex|Trim/Extend (Trimex)]] ...

If this does not require too much effort, could you please give an advise: need to make a fence on a slope of 4/360 degree. The fence consists of sections Single section is a frame between two posts.

How to find the tool implementation code, from the tool-bar button?

Want to try to improve / change/upgrade some tools/buttons from tool-bar How to find the implementation code based on the name/comment of the tool-bar button? In particular - the [Arch/BIM: Path Array] elevates the pattern from the base-face. See here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&...

WB-BIM(Arch): Array / Copy along edge: unexpected position change.

Tried to make a fence by using an array and [copy-along-path:] Array acts as expected. But the [copy-along-path] tool - adds additional elevation at Z-axis: See pictures. Pictures are done in "normal" conditions: initial situation and a view immediately after click. Before_Array.png BIM_1b-Array_Aft...

Re: RAM usage model? ( better or not with ram-disk)

In my vision ( seems now to be wrong) - in windows there are several disk usage cases: 1. RAM caching - being solved at system level 2. dll loading to RAM 3. temporary files 4. present files packing-to/extracting-from archive - may sometimes be done in parallel with the proceeding work in the GUI.

RAM usage model? ( better or not with ram-disk)

Does FC use/have an option to load completely to the RAM, or it works from disk? Nowadays, when the amount of RAM is usually above 4Gb - would be more efficient, If FC would load the it's "kernel" and currently used workbenches to the RAM. Another option would be to run it from "RAM-disk" But the qu...
