Re: Drawing Dimensions Not Visible- Tech Draw

Unfortunately I can't find any instructions on how to use it... Yeah, we need a TechDraw tutorial... I'm currently occupied with a rather huge tutorial rewrite I started... last year! I recommend you first go to the TechDraw preferences (the TechDraw workbench needs to be loaded) and change your se...

Re: Unable to create 2D drawing from 3D part

Indeed I tried this overnight and was unsuccessful: "The export list contains no shape". Just for the sake of completeness, I believe this may be caused by your DXF import settings. There are two DXF importers. The legacy python one needs to be downloaded from a Github repository; because...

Re: Non programmer stuck: No module named dxfwrite

wow, I hadn't figured that DrawingDimensioning was using dxfwrite, sorry I indeed gave wrong instructions. <SNIP> Hi Yorik. The advice I got from wandererfan worked and dxfwrite is working as you intended. To anyone: I am hampered by the lack of zooming/panning in DrawingDimension WB. Otherwise ver...

Re: Non programmer stuck: No module named dxfwrite

I am not a programmer. Is it as simple as copying the extracted dxfwrite-1.2.0 folder to: C:\Users\ccullum\AppData\Roaming\FreeCAD ? Boy, you're really getting the bottom of the support barrel on this one - I don't use Windows, I don't use Drawing Dimensioning and I'm not a Python whiz. Never the l...

Re: Unable to create 2D drawing from 3D part

You need to convert your DXF to SVG, then you need to edit it with a text editor to add special tags inside the file. See Drawing_templates . The challenge here is to convert your DXF to SVG . I won't sugarcoat it, I did tests and didn't find a straightforward way to do so. Thank you, et merci, Nor...

Re: Unable to create 2D drawing from 3D part

After selecting the Drawing in the tree view, and then the Data tab below it in your combo view, you will see the entry line "Template". Click on it and you will now see a small button with 3 dots [...]. Click on the little button and that will provide you with a file browser dialog that ...

Non programmer stuck: No module named dxfwrite

I researched this but I am confused by the answers and discussions. I am not a programmer. I am following Yorik's "A Manual" and following exactly the instructions for the IKEA chair and the last step is DXF output but I get "No module named dxfwrite". So can someone tell me, lik...
