Re: Freecad 0.20 missing centermarks by default

I checked the vertex scale & the vertex color, & they're the same between the 0.20 version (which I'm having the issue with) & the 0.21 weekly appimage (which does display them correctly). If you change the line width in the property editor, is the change reflected in the display? There...

Re: Freecad 0.20 missing centermarks by default

Huh. I reset my configs & deleted the config files for good measure - neither change appeared to have any effect. Attached screenshot shows the views from that project, still without center marks. I don't see dots for the vertices in your images. The center mark is a type of vertex and the cent...

The squares represent a glyph that can't be drawn. Does the string have diacritical marks (accent grave, accent circonflexe, etc)?

Re: Multithread Testing

Quick question, are you compiling against this Libpack (the same as 0.20.1) https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD-LibPack/releases/tag/2.7 ? I deleted the 7zip file to save space on my Windows VM. I'm probably using v2.6 since my OCC version is 7.6.2. I can download and build from v2.7 if it is signif...

If you mean the 3d view, this isn't the way to do it. You'd want to use something like

Code: Select all

import Draft
r = Draft.makeRectangle(100, 100)
r.recompute()

Re: Can't draw simple rectangle qt

I want to draw simple rectangle with qt. I'm using following code but no rectangle. Can you tell me what is wrong about this code? Where do you expect to see your rectangle? You're drawing with an orphan painter. This sort of code would normally be in the paint event of a custom widget that has bee...

Re: Multithread Testing

For those still following this saga, I am currently working on getting the multi-thread branch to work in windows. It seems there are some small differences from linux. Have not got a working version yet, but the list of errors is getting smaller. :?

Re: how to add dimensions in TechDraw?

So I've been making a Macro which takes dimensions and outputs a drawing svg. I managed to code it to create the object and project it to the page, but I for the life of mine am unable to figure out how to add atleast the basic dimensions like length and height of the object through python console....
