I will be able to test it this evening...
It would be nice to test it comparing also with CAD-Assistant for Windows of OCC
It is a CAD viewer also for STEP models and it is based on OCC and Qt, so a comparison may be interesting, to see if FC with MT is using all the power of OCCCAD Assistance is available also for OSX, so it may worth to make a comparison with your new MT branch to CAD-Assistantvejmarie wrote: ...
- 2 - Selection of Compound which contains a huge number of elements which is crazy slow and make navigation painfull if these Compound are active.
In Windows, after a very fast test, it seems to be much more responsive than FC in selecting and displaying elements
Thx as always
Yes selecting and displaying elements in FC is a big mess currently. This is where I will try to focus after, as I have to manipulate STEP files which contains thousands of elements, and currently the selection algorithm is so slow on Compound that even if my tree hierarchy works it will be "useless" if we can't accelerate the rendering (this is explaining why I am currently "hiding" Compound from the rendering window as to accelerate graphical selection and tree manipulation). The code is quite complex on this part, but it works fine . Let's try to understand what's under the hood and what's going on.
I am starting to think that we need an HOW-TO section for developpers. I am new to FreeCAD and understanding all the connection between each part of the code is taking me a crazy amount of time.
