Re: check for bug/awkwardness

However, if instead of creating the Body, I click on "Create a new sketch", select a plane, and click ok, the process creates a new Body which is NOT contained in the already-existing Part. Here FreeCAD does create the Body too and places it under Part. 20191020b.png OS: Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS (Unity/u...

Re: How to select an edge in an axis plane as external geometry?

2) I created a datum plane attached to a face of my Pad. I then attached a new sketch to this datum plane. In your example I don't see any advantage in doing that so you might as well create the second Sketch directly on the face of your solid. You could create your second Sketch directly on the X-...

Re: model became uneditable

is there a way to fix it? Yes, but it's a bit tedious: make a new FreeCAD document, copy the old stuff (except the Body and Origin) into it, and attach the Sketch onto the correct Plane. Using the file you posted (as an example): Do File > New (or Ctrl + N or click the toolbar button) to create a n...

Re: model became uneditable

Those groups were created by copying other groups and changing parameters in new sketches. Some random observations: When I opened your file I got this in the Report View: Origin "Origin120" doesn't contain feature with role "XY_Plane" Can't find Origin for "Body096" but I don't know if that is the...

Umm... what is an "orthogonal constraint"
I'd call it a "Perpendicular Constraint"...

Could (should) a value of 0 be prohibited by FreeCAD?
In my opinion, yes. Maybe there should also be some pop-up warning if the value is set to some (to be determined) unrealistically small number.

Re: A simple question

I am working through the Draft Tutorial v0.16. I guess it's this one? https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Draft_tutorial However the tutorial wants you to fuse these four objects into a wire. The directions in the tutorial are not real clear. It reads like you should select one arc and one line and the...

Re: Can't export a model

A bit off topic but I think these 2020 pieces have been done in the forum before? Selecting Corner (Body), then File > Export as .stl gives a result that looks good when I check by Importing the .stl into a new FreeCAD document. Export to .amf seems to work too, but I can't verify. 20191018-2020corn...

Re: Best way for first hand on FreeCAD 0.18 ?

most tutorials I can find online are obsolete as based on previous versions of FreeCAD :( Hi Vincèn and welcome to the forum! I did a quick search for "YouTube FreeCAD 0.18 tutorial" and that resulted in many hits, and some more video tutorials are listed here: https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Video...
