Re: Assemby 4 - How do I check if a part fits well?

Is there a way A4 can tell me the shaft is oversized or the hole is undersized? I'm sorry, I was drunk and frustrated. You're right, we need a tool for such functionality. Unfortunately, there are not many people to volunteer for the "we" part. Which could be seen as an excuse for the &qu...

Re: Assembly 4 Workbench issues

Beginning was promising until a modification in one of the parts (center frame side) and now all parts become invisible. it's a 2.10m wingspan Horten. What aerodynamical design (airfoils, sweep and twist) do you use for it ? Horten.png It opens correctly in v0.21, but not with v0.19. More important...

Re: [Poll] Sketcher: Task panel rework.

Let me try to sum up what we have discussed and what appears to be agreeable. Objective 1: To minimize the length of the taskbar. Objective 2: To maximize the time in which the solver messages are visible on the screen. Objective 3: To ensure that features and settings used in the different workflo...

Re: Attachment extension

Until this point I worked in an older Version of FreeCAD. (0.19something). Then I updated to the Version You can see above. And updated all the add_ons. ouch ! Do you remember whether the previous version was 0.11.5 ? Unfortunately, it had this bug and corrupted all the files that were *created* wi...

Re: How to do something to improve the performance of FreeCAD?

OCC uses 'COW' (Copy On Write). This means topology can be shared across shapes. OK, thank-you The model of a shape is a shareable data structure because it can be used by other shapes (an edge can be used by more than one face of a solid) The way I read it is that OCC can re-use a shape in another...

Re: How to do something to improve the performance of FreeCAD?

The following is the performance data when I used Python Profilers in my program to test FreeCAD to generate large 3D models. Nice to see someone getting to this task, thank-you and please don't give up I found that the Recompute method took nearly half the time. ncalls tottime percall cumtime perc...

Re: variant Link

So, for things like T-slot extrusion, the very next expected thing to do in an assembly is to anchor something to the T-slot you just dropped in. If the LCS's don't even TRY to carry over to the linked part, then . . . What's the point again? you didn't think it through. The "correct" – a...

There is a discussion ongoing about this, see:

Personally I like nr 2 but I might be biased since that one is also used in another CAD program but other colors.
me too, and the radial gradient, from center to periphery, is really nice, it gives a sort-of holy effect. What colors do you use here ?
