Sanity check please

I'm having trouble understanding why a multitransform or linear pattern complains about "transformed shape does not intersect support" Attached is a .FCStd file exhibiting the error. To see it: Double click TipDepositPlatform_Base to make it the active body. Activate PartDesign WB Click on ProtoSupp...

Re: Sketcher Triangle Constraint issue

"Unsolved" means that your constraints are contradictory. "Redundant" means that one of the constraints can be derived from the others. Really? At other times I've had it tell me constraints were contradictory: "Cannot set the datum because the sketch contains conflicting constraints." "Sketch cont...

Re: Sketcher Triangle Constraint issue

A fully constrained Sketch does not mean that it is unique. It means only that there is no smooth transition to a different solution. I wasn't aware that a fully constrained sketch was not required to be unique. I got to this simple case from an under-constrained condition in which adding the last ...

Sketcher Triangle Constraint issue

I've come across a situation where Sketcher claims a triangle is fully constrained when it is not. This may be related to 0000754 As nearly as I can tell, this is an unreported bug. Can anyone confirm? The attached sketch is reported as having 1 degree of freedom left. If you constrain the distance ...

Re: Help with threading a cylinder

Thank you both. I read the bit about coincident edges causing problems but didn't recognize it as a problem since I was cutting and not fusing.

Help with threading a cylinder

I'm having trouble cutting threads into a cylinder. I am trying to use method #3 in the Thread for Screw tutorial. But the resulting shape doesn't appear to be cut properly. I defined the helix path and the shape to cut, then using part wb did: Select Nozzle object <Ctr>l-Select Sweep object Click "...

Re: Part/Draft constraint equivalents

Why would you replace Sketcher with Draft? You can use Sketches in Part workbench as well. I wanted to understand how to use Draft better. Posts say some people prefer draft/part and others prefer sketch/part design. I wanted to understand the differences better and why one might choose to use one ...

Part/Draft constraint equivalents

I'm trying to get more comfortable with Part and Draft WB by duplicating something I did with Part Design and Sketches. Attached are two cut down files, one using PD and Sketch WB (Reamer_PartDesign_1.FCStd) and the other a partially done Draft (Reamer_Part_1.FCStd). I'm wondering if anyone can give...

Re: Links on the download page hardly visible

First you would have to fork the repository at https://github.com/freecad/freecad-homepage, then you need to open up terminal and type: Thanks, that's the piece I was missing. You pointed to the code for the download-notes css. There are also links at the bottom in the footer-custom area. They are ...
