Re: Shrink filesize clone

Thanks chrisb.

Is does the trick. The file shrinks from 11MB to 7MB. Quite a lot, but still also quite a large filesize.

The is no macro or something like that that creates a simple shell?

Shrink filesize clone

Hi! Sometimes you have to test an assembly(1) inside another assembly(2). I would love it if the result doesn't get sluggish (this can happen with large assemblies). I am searching for a solution to create somekind of clone of assembly(1) which is 'hollow'. Nothing more than the outer shape of the o...

Re: SOLVED! Part vanished... or not?

And another discovery: if the filename is ok, but somewhere in the path an "&" is present, it also does not function!
For instance: C:\&\file.jpg will NOT work

Re: Part vanished... or not?

Thanks mate! And furthermore I would recommend to use a current 0.18 or 0.19 version. They detect these overconstraints. Furthermore they alow usage of a master sketch, which you seem to simulate with a lot of construction geometry. In the near future (I am saying this for more than 6 months now :D ...

Re: Part vanished... or not?

I think I have found the source of the vanishing parts. The imported image which I use as a 'carbon paper' to create a 3D part is called: "P & T_MAD_Topper_2D.jpg" When I try the same with an image called: "P and T_MAD_Topper_2D.jpg" the problem is gone... :idea: Parts can be used with an "&" in the...

Re: Part vanished... or not?

Tried to proceed with the 'recover'-file. - Placed the image back again, scaled and repositioned; - Created a pad of the sketch; - Saved and closed the file; - Reopened the file again, but it seems it is still corupted: I get the same results as before. I will make a fresh startfrom scratch and see ...

Re: Part vanished... or not?

chrisb is a guru, so it seems :geek: Unfortunately I failed trying to reproduce your workaround, using winRAR. Still, I am curious how you managed this? I opened both Document.xml files, but then? The original contains quite a lot of "<properties>". Which one to choose? Just overwriting Document.xml...

SOLVED! Part vanished... or not?

Working for two years now with FC, but this is new to me. I guess I did 'something', but what? 1. I created a part, based on a scaled jpg file and saved it. 2. Restarted FC (version description below, yes it's older, but it normally works fine). 3. Opened the file, but it seems 'broken'? Combo view ...

Re: STL to solid - large filesize

Brilliant, Quaoar. Thanks!

Out of curiousity (maybe for others too): how did you do this? Small description maybe?
