Re: Cannot export sketch to DXF

I have a sketch on my tree which I select then file export, all the dxf options.

I now get an error message Export failed, invalid syntax dxfreader.py line 88

This happens both in sketcher workbench and techdraw.

Do I need to post you my file?

Re: Cannot export sketch to DXF

I have not created an object, I have just used Freecad to create a 2d sketch which needs to be in DXF format.
Do I have to dreate an object?

Cannot export sketch to DXF

I am using Freecad 0.18 and I have checked the import/export dxf box that enables it to automatically download the DXF libraries.
Problem is when I then select to export a sketch it says techdraw module does not support that object type.
What am I doing wrong?

Editing Problems

I am ok building parts in Freecad but I struggle when editing parts. I often get an error that I cant understand or fix. For exmaple yesterday I tried to remove a pocket and an unrelated pocket became detached. Is there a video or something that would help me better understand the editing process?

Draw Style As Is and Wireframe

I am used to seeing either "As Is" OR "Wireframe", but somehow when I now select As Is, I get both and I cant get rid of the wireframe view which is confusing!

Sorry if this is a newbie error!

Polar pattern?

I have a part which I want to replicate as a polar pattern, but as it is not a feature on a part I cant use the polar pattern feature or can I? The part profile was sketched in the YZ plane, then made into a pad. Then I want to replicate it 8 times around the Z axis but cannot find any way to do it.

Re: Attaching sketch to face

Thanks guys, Sketcher External works a treat. Selected the vertices and placed my sketch onto them. Then used Revolve to add my extra part and then fused them. Made a double helix by copying and rotating. This will be a cutout inside a tube to form an internal jacking thread that works over approx 1...
