We really should consider not to take the CalculiX of 8.2 libpack and the Cygwin of FreeCAD 0.14 instead. Even gcx (the original result viewer of CalculiX) has problems with this resultfile which has spaces missing. Tested to run this CalculiX from windows shell and the spaces are still missing. So it is not a FreeCAD problem.

EDIT:
The if statement here takes exact column numbers for reading which is not possible anymore if the spaces are missing due to positiv or negativ character (https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD_sf_m ... Lib.py#L96)

Alright then, I'll upload it again with the cygwin ccx when I get home from work.

Now there is a complaint that python.exe is not included any more: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10354

I don't think that you have to do an extra upload but with the next bigger changes it might be good to re-add the python.exe.

It probably has been said already somewhere, but why did you remove the little arrows to change the values of diameter, length, or position ? Sometimes (often actually) you use those arrows to slowly move an object to the position you want it, instead of knowing exactly where it has to be. Will it be back in 0.15 ? I don't get why you removed them, I get adding stuff, but removing stuff that's practical is wrong imo. Back to 0.13 now :cry:

As for the 0.15, I vote for bolts/nuts and threading, for coordinate axis being on by default, and for better .stl export, atm I have to export my files as .ast and rename it manually as .stl in order to use them in 3D printers and such. Also, why can't I draw a rectangle on a surface I clicked on to create a sketch anymore ? The rectangle simply doesn't appear. Strange bug.

You can't vote for 0.15 anymore. You need to vote for 0.16.

There's no topic for the 0.16.

The widget in 0.14 was something new to support the different unit systems but the arrows were not implemented at that time. In 0.15 there was written a new widgets with the arrow buttons back.
