Is this a bug?

Body 003, Sketch 12: When I try to pocket it, the pad vanishes. I can go slower ways around to achieve this, and I will. But should this be happening, or is it just that I'm a twit?

That's the pillars now. I'm going a two-piece route. Does it matter that I have some stray XZ axis showing up all over the place? How did it get there? I can't seem to get rid of it. If it doesn't affect o/p, then it will hardly matter, will it?

Re: 3D Print puzzle

@chrisb: I don't want to glue, but I've no way out of it. here's huge long panels for sides & roof getting glued as well, There is going to be an internal frame of 1"×1" planed soft wood, or approx. 19mm². That's what the 90º section out of the pillar is about. So I can glue to that frame, no proble...

Re: 3D Print puzzle

I'm intending to hand the printing out. The support would have to be lined up perfectly. Frankly, I didn't think that idea was a runner. It's one thing doing a bodge job at home, quite another getting some dweeb in a printing house to do it

3D Print puzzle

4_Pillar_Verticals.FCStd I eventually ended up with the file above as the shape I wanted for my vertical pillars, but I don't think I can 3dprint that, as the bottom end will not build up correctly. If I stand it up, the middle bit suddenly goes out over thin air :oops:, So I got thinking how to re...

Re: Why won't this Move?

Er, yes, sketch004 looks decidedly odd. The first time I did this, I placed the very first pad 'symmetric to plane', so the origin came in the centre. I eventually had to trash that and do it over, but everything was built on that 1st pad. I'm trying to simulate a push-in door of significant dimensi...

Why won't this Move?

Ends_5a.FCStd Viewed from on top, this file should have 3 pieces: one (on the left) at the correct height; One in the middle with +90mm on the Y axis; One on the right at the correct height. The 2 pieces on the right have no gap on the X axis, which is ok, but they're two separate bodies. Put in a ...

Re: Make a Pad here? Multiple Solids error

you will overcome this basics soon stay on it a not so long way to a SEMIpro Constructor Thanks for your kind words. It's always the way - by the time I become useful at something, I finish the project. I've done so with 2 CAD systems (Freecad TWICE, and Dos based Design Cad, distributed on 5.25" f...
