Re: can't export STL

Try creating the mesh from the Mesh Design workbench, and then export the mesh object from that same workbench menu.

Excellent!

Exactly what I wanted to know.....

Thank You

One more thing: If/when the "Notes" property is added, is there a way to display it in the sketch (like an annotation)?
Not in the sketch as far as I know.

Re: Notes in a Sketch

Requires 0.19 or later.

In the python console enter:

Code: Select all

sk = App.ActiveDocument.Sketch #replace .Sketch with actual name of the sketch
sk.addProperty("App::PropertyStringList","Notes") #then modify Notes property to include your notes using the property editor

Re: Check Geometry: Shell Not Connected

I prefer to attach the sketch to the edge, in this case the helix (or copy), rather than on of the planes when doing a sweep. I would try centering the triangle in the sketch, and then attaching the sketch to the path, probably using normal to edge.

You'd have to delete and create a new one.

Re: Editing a MESH (solid)

Check the mesh with the Tools -> Analyze and repair tool to see if it has some issues. if it does have issues it can cause the boolean subtraction to fail.
