Re: Very annoying mouse modus in CAD Navigation style

Before today I had no idea how I got into this mode, but still I desperately wish to find a way to get rid of this "sticky" mode I can confirm that sometimes it is in sticky mode but the procedure is a bit more complicated than you described. I have not yet found a way to get it reliably. Anyway, t...

Re: Start page keeps coming back

Currently, once one closes Start workbench document tab, activating Start workbench won't bring it back anymore. Likely that is not intended behavior? This is exactly the intended behaviour. Many people who use Start as their default wb don't want to see again the StartPage after they closed it and...

Re: Out of memory error stl to object conversion

It is a micro-CT scan of a material. Due to I do not have licence for other software I thought give it a try. I do not have much experience but if you could suggest any other software I would be appreciated. Thanks I don't know of any open-source software or freeware that could do that. From some v...

Re: FreeCAD versioning scheme and possible evolution

Would that work?
Yes, this should work. But we then still need a way how to handle that for development versions a fourth part is added to the version number and for a release we have only three. And also for a release the build number should be shown in the About dialog at least.

Re: Cancel handling issue with FEM constraint dialogs

The reason is that the rejection routine used by all dialogs is this: I haven't checked the code but if things are not restored then the transaction mechanism probably is not used correctly. The transaction works this way: doc->openTransaction("Operation") doc->addObject(...) doc->removeObject(...)...

Re: FreeCAD versioning scheme and possible evolution

Can you do me a favor and sort 19306, 10209, 19791, 16446, and 12568 real quick? What about 4, 2, 3, 5? Did you actually read all those 5-digit numbers or skim them as noise, and if they were important numbers but I had made a transcription error, would you have noticed? The important difference be...

Aber ich befürchte, dass bei konsequenter Berücksichtigung der verfügbare Platz ringsum nicht ausreichen wird...

Re: Refine does not remove edges

Did the clone convert that Plane to BSplineSurface? I think so but don't know why. Link seems to not suffer this problem when scaled. ;) OCCT has two transformation methods: a geometric transformation and a transformation that changes the placement For the geometric transformation OCCT has the habi...

Re: Curves workbench

For this case it's useful to turn lighting to "One side" and Edit->Preferences->Display->3D-View to these: And confusion is no more possible. ;) Hi UR_, Thank you very much. This is a very good way to see the direction of surfaces. Unfortunately you have to adjust the lighting for each new surface ...
