I strongly suggest that it is time to learn how to use GIT. There are multiple ways of using (with some GUI or with command line). More and more people are using it, not only developers but also content creators.
i just had a look at the QFN32 from within the Git-Repo. That looks so much nicer than my clumsy try!
May I ask who made these and if they were made with FreeCAD? If so how would one avoid the Fusion of the Die into the Pads as happened in my exampel above? And how to get such “clean” Pads withou these crappy interecting lines?
Oh ok i now get it. Skript-Things are not part of my comfort zone so i rather thought of a useful hint of yours than the answer to my question.
Would one be able to generate equaly nice Footprint without a Skript? It shure makes sense to use a Skript generating a bunch of similiar parts but does it offer other benefits than this compared to the GUI?
Union (fusion) of objects needs some trick sometime… particularly when they are co-planar…
The simpler solution it is often to have an overlap of objects… moreover FC 0.17 have many improvements in creating 3d objects and boolean operation because of the new engine and OCC release …
It is more than a year that I don’t use FC0.16 and I’m really pleased with the dev release
Thanks for posting your Skript, i will use it to get an idea how the whole cadquery thing works But i have no need of any footprint at the time. But if so i come back to your offer.
Nevertheless i really would like to contribute!
My shedule is however tightly packed the only option i see is committing the parts i have to create anyways. Which i will willingly do!
the simplest script is the one to build SMD capacitors, so you can get a first look at there
yes, IMO FC0.17 is much more powerful than FC0.16 in many features…
The only slight unstable part is PartDesign WB, which is changing very fast; so sometimes you can have some issue in modeling complex parts. But for STEP generation and managing, FC0.17 is the best ATM.
