Trying to support currencies with the units system doesn't make much sense anyway because these are two different worlds.
Code: Select all
length [m], mass [kg], time [s], electric current [A], thermodynamic temperature [K], amount of substance [mol] and luminous intensity [cd]
Hmm, but would that really be helpful? I mean I deal daily with different plastics. So how can I see a difference between PP and e.g. PLA just by a hatch?
These are good ideas. Hiding the preview field while preview is not implemented is a very good idea. Done in git commit c648b0e87uwestoehr wrote: ↑Thu Feb 14, 2019 12:06 am- as it is, the nonexistent preview only consumes space in the dialog, so either it is removed for now
- or (what I would prefer) one should see there an image of the user's choice. The idea is that users can add an image they like to their material cards and this image will be displayed. So they can e.g. use an image with a gold bar for gold or an image of of the chemical structure for PLA:

The question is if a price in material cards is sensible. To my experience not since prices change every day and every company has its own method for calculating an negotiating prices. Therefore I don't see a use case where users might like to have a fixed price in the material card, even not for private users. While thinking about it, maybe this material property should not be provided by FC. This also avoids conflicts users might have when relying on the price in the material card.
I am a physicist and MEMS engineer. Thus I should use as base unit 10 µm instead of 1 mm
I proposed once (that's what my memory says at least couldn't find it back) to remove the units(from objects) at all. The only place where the units are handled are the unit preferences.
