Freecad 0.19 is the best.

Postby Mongrel_Shark » Mon Nov 18, 2019 9:18 pm

Hi Eveyone. Sorry I have not been on forum lately. Works been flat out. Wish I could pop in more regularly and help out a bit.

I just got the 0.19 daily PPA update on my Ubuntu 16.04 machines. I've had the appimage version for a while, but little time to play.

Had a serious play today


Just wanted to pop in and say thank you to the team for all the amazing work.

There are so many things that are fixed and improved I don't have time to list them all. I think by FC 0.20 will be up there with the paid software. In some ways already better!

I see I have some study to do with Linked parts. Looks really handy!!

The thing that blew me away the most.... - I just added a thread feature mid tree to a part that was the base for a PD polar pattern. Went to fix the polar pattern and found it was already updated with the new features. Then I added a pocket and boom, its propagated to the pattern. Wow that is smart :D

So much Awesome. I think 0.19 is my new go to :mrgreen: I can't go back now. I feel like a kid that just got the keys to the lolly shop.....

I'd stay and rave some more, but making myself late for work. Leaving quick screengrabs of today's project. Its a chamber from work. Need to make nice images for datasheets etc, as well as dimensional drawings for installers. Did a similar one 2 years back. Took me all day and a bit. This one only took me about 2 hours so far and drawings via TD won't take long :D . I'd say time saving is 25% skill improvement (thanks to this forum) and 75% because Freecad is the best.

Big Cheers to everyone involved. You guys are awesome.

Awesome, I'm glad to hear my decision to revisit the PPA support for 16.04 has borne fruit.

Clearly a distillation column for a back garden still. :D

Moved to User Showcase subforum
OP, care to rename the thread topic to include what you modeled ?
