After boolean operation, part disappears in part design

I performed a boolean operation with two parts. One of the parts disappears afterwards. I played around with some of the property functions and found "display mode body" under the property>view. I changed the option from "through" to "tip" and everything shows up. Can someone point me to the area of...

Re: Help with tutorial, multiple planes in same screen?

No, TechDraw is another workbench than Drawing. I found it. It is on the Wiki page under "Working with Workbenches". It isn't in the actual Manual. Yes, the idea would be to sell a book and get some extra money for FreeCAD. Sounds fine to me. It is a lot of work though. You help me with what I want...

Re: Help with tutorial, multiple planes in same screen?

Agree on both points. The whole FreeCAD homepage should also be redone at some point... About the manual, I'd also like to try to bring in in a good shape to have it printed as a real book. This seems the perfect time to do it. AFAICS the PArtDesign chapter needs to be redone, the Drawing one needs...

Re: Help with tutorial, multiple planes in same screen?

Why do I even waste my time making those files anyway? Seems like the people they're intended for have no interest in checking them out. :roll: Answer: Because you love me. :P NormandC, I didn't see that file link until you flipped out. LOL Just as Bejant also place one on the bottom of his reply j...

Re: Help with tutorial, multiple planes in same screen?

https://youtu.be/nzzqNcMD0Oc AndarionCG Video (link is above) is the video we were referring to. At 2:49 is where he used the part cut to remove a slice out of the bottle that he made utilizing a circle and pad. From 2:49, instead of creating a Pad from Sketch001 then create a Part Cut, you can now ...

the start page is automatically opened.
Are you referring to the "FreeCAD Start Center"? As if the program was just opened or started?

Re: Wiki Tutorials page got an overhaul!

I am a newer user and am going through some of the Tutorials. Just attempted the Whiffle Ball tutorial twice and believe that I found a few type o's. I would like to help with Free Cad in some manor and feel this is one of my strong points. I have a knack for stumbling upon little errors here and t...

Re: Help with tutorial, multiple planes in same screen?

Quicker method to create the profile: Sketch a rectangle with bottom left corner at sketch origin Delete vertical constraint on right line Move the line to make it slanted Fillet upper right corner Add required dimensional constraints.

Re: Help with tutorial, multiple planes in same screen?

Thank all of you for the responses. I had to step away for a day to wrap my head around all of this. I'll have to practice at all of the suggestions, study the information and such. That will take me a day or so. I learned a lot in the past few days from all of this. NormandC, the time you spend is ...
