https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zV6_Y-Cl_M7-sSHYfEGHaJhXRrOZv7ae/view?usp=sharing do you know why cut of the parts would result in invalid part?

dunno, you use external features on some sketches?
2018-01-18 11:48:01

wonder if cutting those off causes issues

(luzpaz) FC forum thread tracking upstream OCC/T bugs has been updated. Crossed a few more bugs off that list: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=20264&p=156236#p156236

(normandc) @sliptonic sorry, what are you referring to: comments here, or on the forum, if the latter, could you please provide the link? Thanks.

Hi there. I have a newbie question: If I use an external python script, how can I activate the GUI in order to check my script "online"? I've tried so far FreeCADGui.showMainWindow(), but that creates a GUI container which seems to be frozen (no content nor any reaction). Thx!

(sliptonic) @normandc I was referring to the discussion about moving wiki pages. I thought I started it here but I've lost track. A regular wiki user can move a regular page but not a translatable page. We have a handful of pages that need to be moved. I can just move the content but we lose the editing history that way.

what is bounding box?

Hi, is there a way to "link" dimensions together? I can't seem to find information about this on the wiki
2018-01-20 10:58:34
XXCoder
equal constrant?
2018-01-20 10:58:36
fragalot
eg. dimension x = (Y + Z - 20)
2018-01-20 10:58:42
XXCoder
ahh
2018-01-20 10:58:58
XXCoder
spreadsheet its possible, and i think expression is possible with 0.17?
2018-01-20 10:59:17
fragalot
how do I use the spreadsheet fields to fill in dimensions in the sketch?
2018-01-20 10:59:55
XXCoder
you access the spreadsheet cell from dimension in sketch but forgot exact details
2018-01-20 11:00:36
fragalot
"=spreadsheet.cellname" seems to work
2018-01-20 11:00:37
fragalot
great, thanks!
2018-01-20 11:01:09
XXCoder
nice
2018-01-20 11:05:54

fragalot: you can totally link dimensions together, directly without a spreadsheet even
2018-01-20 11:06:27

ah nm XXCoder already got chu
2018-01-20 11:07:06
XXCoder
nah its fine youre far more knowledgable heh
2018-01-20 11:07:10
fragalot
teatime: how do you do it without the spreadsheet for "local" dimensions?
2018-01-20 11:07:24
fragalot
just using "=height" if height is a dimension in the sketch doesn't seem to work
2018-01-20 11:07:52
teatime
would you beleive, I don't remember? :)
2018-01-20 11:07:54
fragalot
=Constraints.height ^_^
2018-01-20 11:08:01
teatime
they *might* have to be reference dimensions, but I am fairly sure they don't
2018-01-20 11:08:06
fragalot
amazing how trial & error using the alphabet gets you things
2018-01-20 11:08:14
teatime
oh, did you figure it out?
2018-01-20 11:08:17
fragalot
I did.
2018-01-20 11:08:21

excellent.

is it possible to create assemblies of parts?
2018-01-20 11:17:19
XXCoder
assembly workspace>?
2018-01-20 11:17:29
XXCoder
never needed to make more than one part :)
2018-01-20 11:18:29

.16 doesn't appear to include an assembly workspace

(normandc) @fragalot of course it is possible to create assemblies of parts in FreeCAD, simply by moving/rotating the parts into place. What FreeCAD is missing is a 3D constraint-based Assembly workbench. You can use the Assembly2 external plug-in for that, but know that the original one is no longer maintained. https://github.com/hamish2014/FreeCAD_assembly2

(normandc) @fragalot someone else forked the original Assembly2 project to keep it alive: https://github.com/tomerp/FreeCAD_assembly2

(normandc) @sliptonic I'll look at the topic again (try to find it first). I'll admit I haven't worked much on the wiki in the past couple of years, and I've never moved pages after we started using the translation plug-in. Before that, translated pages were independent from the source page.
2018-01-20 18:03:16
FreeCADBot
(sliptonic) @normandc Thanks. I think it's just complaining because the page I'm trying to move is marked for translation and that action requires an administrator level. It may be that it's as simple as an administrator doing the page move .

Hi, I tried the default addon-manager in FreeCAD and it seems to be failing on installing macros too like Macro View Rotation,
