Re: BIM workbench statusbar Units Chooser for other benches

If anyone can help any help is welcome. I've added it to the Draft Status Bar (I personally use the Autoload Draft Wb in Preferences) so it's always available. The changes can be seen here https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/compare/master...Syres916:FreeCAD:patch-57 and the full file is attached. A...

Re: [Sketcher] How to construct a tautochrone curve

This macro creates the curve multiple times (in this case 8) as part of cycloid gear directly in Sketcher, the large radius being location (PCD) from the centre and small radius being the arc to generate the curve. Hopefully it'll give you an alternative or a starting point for learning to automate ...

Re: Spreadsheet values do not update when the Master Spreadsheet is changed

I tried it with build 0.20.26733 and it's no different but if I create two new files each with a spreadsheet with one as a driver and the other as driven in order to replicate a simple example, it works as expected with the cell in the driven file going to #PENDING before doing a Recompute.

Re: Missing lines between two parts

Plenty of errors loading on my box, the main issue which you didn't mention was you were using a A2Plus component with Fasteners placed as completely seperate items. I'm a big fan of A2Plus to do assembly as long as I don't need to make Tech drawings of them but if I need a tech drawing then I leave...
