Window clones && getSubVolume (was Re: Roof builder)

Postby bofhjr » Wed Dec 03, 2014 7:40 am

Yes. I had started to implement something like the windows, that is, implement a getSubVolume function. If you look into the Arch Components processSubShapes functions, if the subtracted object is a roof, it uses a shape given by its getSubvolume() function, instead of the object's shape.
Hi Yorik,
Windows are really awesome as FreeCAD is :)

However the getSubVolume method does not work for windows clones...I tried to correct that... Can you have a look at issue #1841 in mantis ?

Hi Jean-Marie and welcome !
I saw your bug reports, indeed there is something to do to facilitate the cloning or array of windows.
Your solution is interesting, I have another one (but not coded ;) ) this is to add Axes property to windows.

[Edit : What follows is not more current events but remains valid :mrgreen:
Jean-Marie : please before posting, look where you are going to post. Actually this post haven't relation with Arch windows. So, the next time, please create a new post or reply in a thread talking about the same subject. Also read this : viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2264 or in fr : viewtopic.php?f=12&t=5110

Thanks !

Ah great, thanks! I'll have a look at your code ASAP.
