Re: Exporting model as OBJ only exports part of it

If you put your mouse over 'Body' you should get a Tooltip of Error (the white exclamation mark in the red disc) which means your model has a fault, most likely in the batch of Fillets at the bottom of the tree. I'm not a PartDesign expert but you should get the model error free and then try an OBJ ...

Re: SVG Import issues

I have to wait for the fix. First thing to say, this test fix would be classed as quick and dirty except it wasn't quick and has given me a bit of a headache!! The process I've added is check to see if there's an Inkscape version number in the file to be imported and where possible determine what d...

Re: drafting over a napkin drawing

It would appear your graphics card/driver compatability with Qt5 is causing the error, please see https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?t=32637 If you're really struggling, an alternative is to download the 0.19 Qt4Py2 version https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/download/0.19_pre/FreeCA...

[*]set TEMP=D:\Temp
I think this should be:

[*]set TMP=D:\TEMP

..as the documentation and testing I've carried out suggests the GetTempPath function checks %TMP% first and if it exists will take that and only if it fails does it carry on to %TEMP%. %USERPROFILE% and %WINDIR%.

Re: /Mod/Launcher error when starting FreeCAD (

Something for you to try @Kunda1, is change line 56 of /Mod/Launcher/InitGui.py from: iconPixmap.loadFromData(icon) to: iconPixmap.loadFromData(str.encode(icon)) It appears to work OK on Windows with the change though I've not been a Launcher user in the past but the commands are listed when I type ...

Re: boxcreator on Freecad 0.18

I believe the reason for new users (or those of us who never had the macro) not seeing macros such as this one is that they must have an entry in the Wiki There must be another reason, because I do see it in the Addonmanager's list. I've read the code more thoroughly and the first step, it tries to...
