Re: Air Plane Design Workbench - discussion thread

Thank you for the quick replies to help me out. I will work on your instructions. Eventually, this is what I would like to learn how to do. There is a new technique to create 3d printed airplanes and it requires really good CAD technique because the wing ribs are not at the standard angle. See here:...

Re: Air Plane Design Workbench - discussion thread

Fred, Thank you. I tried playing around with your WB. Can you or someone show which WB or tool to make holes in the ribs and give them thickness so I can 3D print them. I tried to use the part design work bench and sketch but Freecad didn’t like that because there was no body container. I think I am...

Re: BAD crash with trying to open Mac FCad file on Win 10

Re: Sweeping a sketch across a body

Sketches should have CLOSED perimeters. I deleted stray lines and put perimeters around your main pockets and it works. I did not have time to put the contraints in for you.

I only know how to activate the chamfer or fillet comma...

instant crash when trying to chamfer or fillet

I get an instant crash when I try to chamfer or fillet in my part. See highlighted edge for the problem location: Screen Shot 2019-05-19 at 12.02.59 AM.jpeg I may be asking FCAD to fillet in an area where it cannot, but it should not crash like this. I'm not really familiar on how to report bugs. Th...
