Re: Changing FreeCAD shapes to line drawings

It worked! Phenomenal instruction, Johannes. Thank you very much! Happy to hear that. You are welcome ;) Do you know whether or not shading like in the picture I've attached is possible within TechDraw? To be honest I don't know if this is posible with FreeCAD, however you could export your drawing...

Re: Changing FreeCAD shapes to line drawings

Hi Noob, Changing FreeCAD shapes to line drawings The following ideas come to mind: Option 1: If you want to do it directly in the 3D view you could change the draw style to Wireframe and set the background to white. Set draw style: Shortcut V,3, or View --> Draw style --> Wireframe , or Right Click...

Re: New "Structures" Toolbar

Hi Zolko , So I propose a new "Structures" toolbar I second the proposal, as I also believe that these tools belong together. However I would maybe keep PartDesign_NewSketch out since there are more Sketch related tools (e.g. Sketcher_EditSketch or Sketcher_MapSketch ) that would be left o...

Re: Sketcher CreatePolyline mode cycle shortcut

Why not. Just to see if we can reproduce with it. Good news, I found the problem. It was indeed my fault. I forgot I had created a shortcut for a macro (M,O) that was interfering. Good to know at least that the CreatePolyline tool will still work if its shortcut is overridden. It would be nice to h...

Re: Sketcher CreatePolyline mode cycle shortcut

Can you check in the (previously failing) "user.cfg" file and search for a group identified with <FCParamGroup Name="Shortcut"> :?: If it exists, you can have a look or copy it (the whole group) here. ;) It doesn't exist. Would you like to have the whole file? Kind regards, Joha...

Re: Sketcher CreatePolyline mode cycle shortcut

Could you try hard resetting your FC preferences by renaming %APPDATA%\FreeCAD folder (need to do it with no FC instance running) ? Done! With default preferences it works as expected. What preference could be interfering? I don't set any shortcuts manually that could override this. Kind regards, J...

[Solved] Sketcher CreatePolyline mode cycle shortcut

Hi all, for some reason when I use the CreatePolyline tool in the Sketcher WB I can only cycle through its different modes using the Shift+M key combination even though the tool hint and corresponding wiki page instruct only using the M key. Is this normal? Kind regards, Johannes OS: Windows 10 Vers...

Re: Feature Request - Minor UX improvement - "Sketch Tools" always appearing when not needed

Hi, However, if you open a preexisting sketch and change anything or even just open a constraint (and make no change to the constraint); pressing the escape key causes the Task pane to come up. I believe this is FreeCADs default behaviour. When the Part Design WB starts it switches to the Task panel...

Re: Question:How to create a convex lens

I have another question, can I still create lens without "import Part"? I don't know exactly what you mean. I suppose there are a lot of ways to achieve the same result and you are not necessarily bound to use the Part module. As for using the scripts I sent you without the import Part li...
