Force Recompute.png Macro Force Recompute

Description
This small macro forces a manual recompute of the model.
Sometimes the user applies changes to the model in FreeCAD.
But FreeCAD does not seem to recognize them.
(As of introduced in version 0.17 the effect of this macro can be achieved through GUI. Right-click project in model tree view, and pick "Mark to recompute" from context menu. After that, press Recompute button.)

Description

Sometimes when a user applies changes to the model, FreeCAD does not seem to recognize/integrate them. In addition to that, the blue Std Refresh.svg Refresh/Recompute button remains greyed out. Hence this small macro was designed to force a manual recompute of the model.

Note: As of v0.17 and above the effect of this macro can be achieved through the GUI. Right-click project in model tree view, and pick Mark to recompute from the context menu. What this does is make the Refresh/Recompute icon active again. Now press on the Std Refresh.svg Refresh/Recompute button to trigger a recompute.

Usage

Run the macro when necessary.
