Re: Part::Compound / Compound: Links go out of the allowed scope

Rounding of numbers, not your faces :) As if 12.00000000000000000000005 is rounded to 12.0000000000

Re: Lofting Sketches that contain hole.

That is not the way to trace that. Why did you not use arcs? Also lofting between that sketches by some reason crosses the side openings. Probably because the order in which they were created. You should probably trace them in the same order - first outer contour, then left opening, then central one...

Re: Wrong start point of a sweep along a planar spiral

It probably is the direction of the arcs. They are probably traced clockwise so the one that you think is the first is actualy the last one.

The problem is that I wrote it over 6 years ago
I realy miss that nobody puts dates and version info in the wiki pages. This page shows "Last edit of the page: at 18:53, on 13 february 2019." so anyone reading would assume that the info is up to date...

On another note you should avoid mapping sketches to faces because of that "topological naming" issues. It already broke here:

Re: Lofting Sketches that contain hole.

I was citing the wiki... which was not entirely correct... probably more indepht explanation is needed there. Any way it looks like it works so more info is needed to answer. They do not show up in the lofting tool Could you provide an example file, your freecad version info,... as Chrisb mentioned ...
