Nice to hear from you and good luck with your PhD!mrlukeparry wrote:I just saw the announcement via Facebook of all places. I thought, it cannot be what I spent time working on, but indeed it is!! Admittedly it did bring a huge smile on my face!
Just a little update, I am in the process of wrapping up my PhD towards the end of the year (fingers crossed), so will be starting the thesis write-up in the next month or too. I've been out of the community for a long time, but it is great to see everything in FreeCAD, and this module is starting to come nicely together. Over the past two years, I have learned a lot of programming skills and knowledge, but I also have gained an idea of where future research and development for tools and design is heading. 3D Printing/AM is bringing a complete different design methodology and will require a new set of tools and thinking.
BTW, I am still waiting for the FreeCAD world conference to happen!
I wish to give a big thank you to Ian, wandererfan, Yorik, and those I am not aware of, for keeping this alive and developing this into a mature feature since its inception over three years ago.
Sounds good to me! I may tidy up AMF export support when I get some time, but am definitely interested in working on moving to Qt5. -Ian-saso wrote:Do I already hear some thoughts on python3, Qt5?

They are there because the coder is an old man with poor eyesight who can't select tiny vertices.liutas4x4 wrote:Are the bold fat dots on crossing lines in drawing, created using TechDraw, feature or kind or bug? If those dots have a meaning for someone, let them be. But in this case I must to have option disable or at least control a size/visibility of them.

Drawing stores the page result as SVG in the FCSTD file. So on load, it has nothing to calculate. TechDraw rebuilds the drawing from the model at load time. That is why one is faster to load than the other.liutas4x4 wrote:While near instant update on 0.15 + Drawing + Drawing Dimensioning (working set before 0.17 + TechDraw), just changing the scale took about 8 to 12 sec. Because of raw code?
