Re: what's going on with shapestring?

@looo are you aware that the Python 3.10.x Windows Conda build produces the error raised by the OP but the Python 3.8.x equivalent on the same box with the same font is fine?

Re: Helix computing very slow. How to do performance code changes?

I tested using your file and it take 14 seconds to do any change to the thread. I would definitely look at the Fasteners Wb, the M4 default thread is configurable with custom pitch, length, left hand/right hand and it's way quicker at updating, like 14 times quicker. The wb has in it's Preferences s...

Re: Can I install Freecad on an external hard drive?

There is only 14 GB free space left. I install on a G: drive so that's not an issue but you're probably not aware that the Temp and Tmp variables which by default point to the C: drive are used for all sorts of 'dross' and aren't automatically cleaned up on closing FreeCAD so you've been warned.

Re: help of a project

That really isn't a very efficient way to model, firstly forget the Part container unless you are doing assemblies, I've been using FreeCAD since 0.16 for real work and never needed them. If you look at the attached file you will see how I would model something along the lines that you want (there's...

Re: Part Design workbench and Gear

Maybe I did not express myself correctly. Repositioning of the gear is possible while I am in the Timing gear. In the moment I drag the gear into body and add a sketch it goes back to the XY plane ... Purely from a workflow point of view I would create the shafts for the gears to reside first and t...

Re: v20 Fastner help

add one at a time to my model. You make it sound as though the user cannot add the same fastener to multiple holes at once, this is incorrect. The user simply Ctrl-clicks each circular edge of each hole to have the same type of fastener and then clicks the fastener button required which creates the...

Re: Part Design workbench and Gear

What would be nice is to have the similar functionality as Fasteners where you can select the edge of a hole or shaft before clicking the fastener required and it be created at the location and in the same plane. I've had a look at the code of both and it's definitely transferable but whether it's w...
