Upload the file so the helpers can have a look.

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

So is there a way to do this? Can I tweak the transfer of files? You can use a batch file where you set these variables before calling FreeCAD. But it isn't really much volume created there. I'm not on Windows and thus cannot test, but I guess that the system's temp directories are cleared on reboo...

Re: Expression parser broken for Python objects

As a workaround you can enter the values with units:

Code: Select all

1V+2V
As you most probably don't have a constant expression you can add a unit to a unitless value like this

Code: Select all

<<someExpression>>*1V + <<someOtherExpression>>*1V

Danke. Mein Ziel war die Demonstration des Folding Modus.
Zunächst hatte ich für die erste Tasche direkt die DatumPlane genutzt. das ging gut, aber das PolarPattern hat mir dann einen Strich durch die rechnung gemacht. Womöglich ist das ein Bug.

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

If you have many threds to model, then using Fasteners workbench is very useful, because you can control thread modeling with a single parameter. And using expressions provides a possibility to switch them off while modeling and then switch them all on in one single go as a final step.

Part Loft and Sweep are much older than their PartDesign counterparts. So perhaps it may well be possible to augment the Part functions as well?
