You are definitely right. i945G supports OpenGL 1.4 (2002 standard:-) only, while OpenGL did introduce NPOT in the version 2.0.

Re: can freecad be used as a web based parametric program

Hi,
Not sure if I understood you correctly, but FreeCAD can be used as part of some kind of web service. You can run FreeCAD headless and connect it with a web server. More viewtopic.php?f=22&t=6470

Re: [Tip] FreeCAD does square helices!

Hi! As always using python and some math you can create everything;) Using the Macro 3D Parametric Curve and equations (tune the "30", "10" and "0.05" numbers): (30+10*cos(t))*cos(0.05*t) (30+10*cos(t))*sin(0.05*t) 10*sin(t) you can plot a helix wrapped around a torus. http://en.zimagez.com/miniatur...

Re: What is the system requriments for Freecad?

Well, the biggest problem on the real hardware is lack of "desktop" OpenGL 2.0 implementation. VideoCore IV documentation has been released a while ago, maybe is it possible to write such implementation? Who knows... Freedreno team did it for Adreno.

Re: What is the system requriments for Freecad?

Surprise, FreeCAD is available in the standard Raspbian repositories. Unfortunately, I have no real hardware to test FreeCAD. http://en.zimagez.com/miniature/fcpi.png The image shows FreeCAD running on the Qemu-ARM emulator.

Re: compile for Windows from Linux and run in wine

And it's pretty straightforward on Debian/Ubuntu, Disagree, it was pretty straightforward two years ago, when FC was a much simpler package. Today you have to meet dozens dependencies and resolve problems - coin60 vs coin80, pivy (internal or external?), shiboken (what it is? something about that j...

Maybe someone else can confirm this but none of the MSAA types seem to work on my Ivy Bridge HD4000 chipset.

Re: Anti-Aliasing

From the error message I think, that graphics card was gone out of RAM. FYI: If you are using open source drivers, you can draw some graphs (to monitor VRAM usage) inside the FreeCAD GL viewport: GALLIUM_HUD=VRAM-usage,requested-VRAM freecad MSAAx8, 300MiB memory usage: http://en.zimagez.com/miniat...
