Re: New user observations & guidance request

completely different subject - who would like join forces to initiate a crowdfunding campaign to invest in FreeCAD development? If you mean with "invest" to collect money to pay for some development, I would support it (there are other topic about this). If "invest" means that you are expecting som...

Re: New user observations & guidance request

This tool is apparently pre 'GUI' and unless I find out how to modify the relevant data fields, or translate the who...

Re: New user observations & guidance request

- There is no need to fully model MotorBracketHead and then remove half of it. I made a fresh start even though I have still gone that lazy route to design half (if not even 1/6th) of the design where i then was again able to complete the whole body mirror (in the Parts Workbench) but again Part De...

Re: New user observations & guidance request

Instead of repeating the contents you could have used a link. In some ways it is like a continuous tutorial. I download lots of the problem FCStd files, and I learn a lot.
