Mesh node data/information

Postby aszodi95 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 9:11 am


I have a geometry that I meshed and I'd like to know the data of the nodes. So can I somehow readout this information from freecad? For example in FEMAP you can do it with -> show tooltips and after this if you take the cursor above of a node a little text box appears and writes that Node:254 x:.... y:... z:...
So can I do the same in FreeCad too?

Thanks in advance!

activate the statusline in menue view, move the mouse above the node and watch at the statusline.

Furthermore you could use some lines of python and draft text to write the information directly beside the node. user fandaL posted some month ago some code in this regard.

hope this helps bernd
