Re: Design of Basket/Dust Bin

Thank you chrisb. I was really more interested in learning the flow of commits to merges. My guess is that the commit that I mentioned has not yet been merged. Perhaps I am wrong. I have solved my problem by using the line tool in the Curves WB and then making the face from the lines. I am inclined ...

Re: Design of Basket/Dust Bin

I have an object partially composed of faces based upon a sketch. In attempting to complete the object by filling in space between the faces, using the edges of the existing faces, I get the "input vector has zero norm" error. I also tried to use vertices of the area to be filled by a face...

Re: Unit testing Spreadsheet WB copy and paste

This looks very interesting. I want to be able to view an active document and send "Run" to the Macro editor via a Macro button.

I suspect that this would be possible when the new code migrates to a distributed version of FC? Perhaps there is a way of doing what I want already?

Ahhh. Thank you Mario. It is the simple things that need attention.

Thanks for the guidance for creating a macro. I did not realize I could post a macro without do so via GitHub.

Re: Code snippet to demonstrate how to access, from a script, a Gui object created by the script

Thank you mario52 for your post. I have benefited much from your macros. They have helped me in learning Python and FC. I too have been playing with polyhedra. Below is code that I recently completed that will produce the "great rhombicuboctahedron", incorrectly called a "truncated cu...

Code snippet to demonstrate how to access, from a script, a Gui object created by the script

While working on a project that involved coloring objects created via a script I was surprised that information on this subject was not easy to find. I did a good bit of searching to find specifically how to access a Gui object from the script that created the object. There are a number of postings ...

Re: Instant Insanity - An exercise in learning FreeCAD scripting.

Here are some observations. You may, of course, feel free to disregard them All six sides of the cubes are relevant. With the coloring provided by "Set Colors" the coloring is fixed to correspond to the actual color pattern of the puzzle. Each cube can appear in 24 different orientations....
