Re: editing a solid

If this is just a simple in-exact operation that you want to do....just do it in Tinkercad. It is an online application offered free by Autocad. It is extremely good at editing uploaded stl files.

Re: Freecad crashes when opening sketch

I believe, Andrea, that you are using a forked version of freecad - Linkstage3. This maybe be quite different from v.19xxxxx

Re: part offset and part length somehow ain't as setup.....

You have errors in your pad. See the red exclamation points icons to the left of your pad in the drawing tree? Those shouldn’t be there. If you share the file, we can take look.also, v0.18 is now old, please try this on v0.19xxxxx available in the dev area.

Re: Pocket "Through all" not working

@chrisb, I’m using v.19 and have also noticed this same issue. I didn’t bother to bring it up because I thought it was my improper usage of FCad. Thank you for bringing it to everyone’s attention.

Re: Cannot Mirror in Part Design WB

This is indeed how it should be done. Let me add that the sequence of adding features is important: If you add the AdditivePipe after the Pocket, then the pocket will be ignored. Switch it, so that the AdditivePipe comes first and the Pocket second, then the mirror will have the pocket too. WOW! Th...

Re: Cannot Mirror in Part Design WB

in part design, your model must be a single contiguous solid. the result of the transform would result in multiple soilds, so it fails.

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

I just want to report back, and say that main problem seemed to be a BAD hard drive (conventional drive). I noticed that the win10 task manager reported very low data rates at full drive data capacity to the drive at all times (even when there seemed to be no need to access the drive). My computer w...

Re: use of bspline in sketcher crashes in v.18 and v.19

I replicated the error again and noticed an interesting error message: Illegal storage access! Please save your work under a new file name and restart application!

On the very bottom it says: Unhandled Base::Exception caught in GUIApplication::notify........
