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
So much Awesome. I think 0.19 is my new go to 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 . 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.
