[discord] <Red Sand Robot> huh, looks like some of the things/features I was looking for are currently in the Link branch.
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <Red Sand Robot> in PartDesign, there is a feature to allow for the use of non-PartDesign features/tools inside of a PartDesign Body, as well as multi-body support.
[discord] <Red Sand Robot> though multiple "solids" in a single "Body" makes for a confusing naming system
[discord] <drmacro> Nothing there I can't do in master.
[discord] <Red Sand Robot> I don't doubt it - but workflow similarity at least to get familiar with the software is nice.
[discord] <drmacro> Multiple solids in a single Body is a confusing idea...period.
[discord] <drmacro> I don't see why people think they need
[discord] <Red Sand Robot> i can agree with you there haha
[discord] <drmacro> What non-Part Design features?
[discord] <Red Sand Robot> people like it probably due to it's similarity with how other CAD software will generate bodies upon extruding/revolving a shape without needing to manually create containers
[discord] <drmacro> What does that by you in FreeCAD?
[discord] <Red Sand Robot> SurfaceWB features - I can use edges from a PD body to create a surface feature within the body.

@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <Red Sand Robot> Without using Shapebinders, if thats what is normally done
[discord] <drmacro> The Shapebinder makes more sense when you look back six months from now and wonder what you did.
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <Red Sand Robot> most likely, but my quick testing was more to see what errors i would generate more than anything.
[discord] <Carboxyl> Any ideas on the best way to copy this given a variable diameter?
[discord] <Carboxyl> I have sketches like this but they don't really work well

@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <ThothLoki> is there a 32 bit windows install for freecad?
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <bance> I would probably do that with a pattern of two revolves....
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <drmacro> I've never looked. But, I suppose if all dependencies could be met you could compile one. I suspect the dependencies might be an issue.
[discord] <God of Butts> I know these technically must exist but I also suspect that the ones you can find aren't worth the effort, and I think you should probably just install a partition of some form of linux if your computers are THAT old and you are still that desperate to cad. In fact, I think you should probably install linux on ALL of your partitions, because nothing you need from windows needs windows anymore to survive.
[discord] <God of Butts> if I were doing this on a single part (in the part_design workbench), I'd probably make the first "egg cup" with a "groove" (rotated sketch to cut away) to make the first one as a cutout of the geometry, and then I'd do a "polar pattern" to make a row of those, and then again to make a copy of the rows
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <God of Butts> that gets you a single sketch that all of the (apparently identical?) cups share, so if you make it wrong you can change the sketch and the polar patterns to bring the whole pattern into spec.
[discord] <God of Butts> "polar pattern" is the small yellow cubes on the top surface of a larger blue cube, next to the "mirror" and other such tools that copy geometry features in part_design

@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <ThothLoki> yea. i have a samsung activ3 tablet that is running a 32 bit windows 8 instance.
yesterday i tried to installed Void linux and MX linux (x86 versions) and it kept freezing at boot. I will keep trying. I suspect the cpu is 64 bit but i need to verify that first. was just hoping to get freecad running on it. it would be cool to have a tablet with a stylus for CAD.
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <God of Butts> put linux on your tablet lol
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <ThothLoki> im trying!!! LOL
[discord] <ThothLoki> none will boot
[discord] <ThothLoki> this the is cpu in it, so i am limited to 32 bit.
[discord] <ThothLoki> think i might be out of luck on most things these days.

@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <God of Butts> it almost seems like you should use android on it lol
[discord] <God of Butts> don't you have a real computer
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <Qewer> he can't get android on an x86 cpu
[discord] <Qewer> I'd say there's no hope in saving that device really
[discord] <drmacro> In the past I have always had Android tablets. I wanted something that I could run linux on, native, no VM or rootkit. I settled on a MSSurface. There is a custom kernel that allows touch screen and it works very nicely with Debian and Ubuntu (Ubuntu with Gnome is better in general for touch screen use though). When I received it I updated the included Windows and firmware, repartitined and installed Ubuntu. Now I have a tablet that runs FC very nicely.
[discord] <Obelisk> as much as I'm not a particular fan of MS software, their hardware is actually quite good.
[discord] <God of Butts> eh if you're going to buy new go on newegg.com and use one of their builder things
[discord] <God of Butts> otherwise you can probably find something decent used near you or on ebay or both
[discord] <God of Butts> I'm typing this from an x1 carbon that I think currently sells for 150-250 depending where you buy and specs and etc
[discord] <God of Butts> yes it runs freecad just fine
[discord] <ThothLoki> I do. jsut found this tablet in my stack of shit and wanted to see what i could do with it
[discord] <God of Butts> I mean, salvage the parts and do target practice with the corpse? can't you sell the case and screen to a vending machine?
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <God of Butts> none of us has the power to bring back 2010
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <drmacro> Actually, salvage the screen, get a cheap controller from Ebay or other vendor, and feed it hdmi or vga. 🤓
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <God of Butts> that's what I meant by 'salvage the parts' except most of my monitors cost $5-10 at goodwill lol
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <clearchris> I can't imagine anything more painful than running cad on a tablet. Better have a bt mouse
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <anticitizen> the tablet is fine, running freecad on an intel atom though 💀
FreeCADGitter
@FreeCADGitter
[discord] <drmacro> I have a Surface with a Type cover. The tackpad isn't bad. But, I definitely prefer a mouse. But, not all sitting situations are conducive to mouse use.
