  1. This could be the problem eventually. Can you tell me which version of FreeCAD is installed and which OS and version you are using? Would like to reproduce it πŸ™‚ Many thanks so far! - Thomas
  2. Open some FreeCAD files in Cura using the plugin. Previously there were some difficulties with files, which have multiple bodies or other shaped objects. The macro should go through all objects within the FCstd file and export them all.
  3. Nope, replace it with the script in the macro folder of the plugin. You know where I mean? Something like: /home/<your user id>/.config/cura/4.8/plugins/CuraFreeCadPlugin/macro/ My plugin is running a macro from inside the plugin folder using "freecadcmd" btw. πŸ™‚
  4. As discussed with @tomazslapsak in an email conversation, it happens on R19 only. I remember that the plugin has been used with R19 before. Can someone confirm problems here? πŸ™‚
  5. I improved the export script to convert all volumetric and shaped objects. Wasn't happy with the results some time ago when I was working on something in FreeCAD, so I gave it another try. One thing that definitely needs improvement is that I can check the objects' visibility. This is not available within FreeCAD's headless mode, because people might have thought: "Why caring about visibility, if you have no UI and can't see anything anyways." Well, good point, but stupid if I would like to convert all visible objects (because theoretically you could have made some invisible because somet
  6. Is there someone available for some testing? πŸ™‚
  7. Hmm, the tool claims that the service is registered, but the executable is wrong.. Is CATIA installed to non-default location? Anything special on your computer, like an enterprise setup by your IT helpdesk?
  8. Hmm, and what does the service checker say? I'm still busy moving to new hardware for my website, therefore my instructions are how. It should give us a better impression where the spot of the issue is.
  9. @tomazslapsak Same question to you! Any other details you can add? πŸ™‚
  10. Hey! After a longer time I got FreeCAD into my hands again and probably faced the same issue as you do! If you are using Ubuntu* (likely affects Debian, too) there is a problem with the "headless mode" of FreeCAD. The only way to make it work is to use the stable PPA of FreeCAD, which comes with the fix, which will make the plugin work again, too! https://wiki.freecadweb.org/Install_on_Unix#Stable_PPA_through_the_graphical_interface
  11. @Khamul2000: If you are interested to dig deeper, you can take a look into the plugin's source files. The file called "SolidWorksReader" has the parameters, which you would normally set via "Custom" mode: https://git.thopiekar.eu/Cura/CAD/CuraSolidworksPlugin/-/blob/master/CuraSolidWorksPlugin/SolidWorksReader.py#L656 As I said before, if you find other settings (or one of the two) too coarse for e.g. "fine", then argue and let's discuss here. We can adjust the parameters then, so everyone can benefit from our findings πŸ˜‰
  12. Hello Mischa, sorry for the late reply. I have missed your message in my busy inbox. Is this problem reproducible? So, does it happen every time? πŸ™‚ - Thomas
  13. Great to hear! The settings are finer than in the SolidWorks ones. If you are using SolidWorks only you choose between three profiles: * Fine * Coarse * Custom These fine and coarse profiles are the SolidWorks' ones you see in the plugin. I can imagine SolidWorks tweaked the parameters behind these profiles for industrial printers with larger build volumes and therefore if you print on an Ultimaker (having an Ultimaker 2 or 3 primary in mind) then you will get something that is too coarse still. E.g. the rounding won't be nice. Just to suite everyone using the plugin, I decided
  14. Could you send me your log file? This article will tell you where to find it: https://thopiekar.eu/cura/plugins/reporting-bugs/ You can send me the .log (or .zip) file via private message here πŸ™‚
  15. @eried: Can you please share some info? Installed version of Inventor and Cura? Thanks! @mtg01: Could you make a screenshot of the results of the service checker tool and send me your log file? You can send it to me via private message πŸ™‚
