two glitches in simulator

Postby schnebeck » Tue May 22, 2018 8:27 am


OS: Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.18.13728 (Git)
Build type: None
Branch: master
Hash: 4f5e304d64d79eb64d3b96f41cdc5293522958ef
Python version: 2.7.6
Qt version: 4.8.6
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.2.0
Locale: German/Germany (de_DE)

When there is a path op without tool-controller like 'fixture' simulation generates an error - although the operation is disabled in simulation

And there is a typo:

Code: Select all

freecad-daily/Mod/Path/PathScripts/", line 490, in InvalidOperation
    return false
NameError: global name 'false' is not defined
false -> False

The tool controller issue has been discussed here before. The search might give further information.
You need at least FreeCAD 0.19.23300 to edit my current sketches.

The problem still exists in the code base as of May 27.

The fix is simple, change all occurrences of the word "false" to "False" in the source for the file /usr/local/Mod/Path/PathScripts/
The effect of the typo is to prevent the start the PathSimulator simulation, and to burp up an error on stderr complaining about "false" not being defined.

It takes longer to describe the problem than it does to fix it.
