The tank will be made out of 50mm thick PP sheets.
I am a little skeptical about the mechanical strength of this tanck
you have to be a super specialist to weld PP
Well, if you are interested, I can post you some photos, once it is manufactured, which is 6-8 weeks.

If you change Sketch007 to two concentric circles you get the tube directly.
If I change the 45 degree line to an arc then it succeeds too:

Re: Create two pads on the side of a cylinder

The view orientation is taken from the orientation in the 3D space. Yepp, that was the key issue. I'm almost done, only the incoming pipe is missing. I can not create it with the sweep tool, freecad just hangs. Here is the freecad file: water_tank_wip3.FCStd Here is a screenshot about the problemat...

Re: Create two pads on the side of a cylinder

Who will fabricate it? If you have it done by a contractor, making it as a single PartDesign Body may be sufficient. Well, it is a 4m3 water tank (under the earth surface), but I'm not quite sure the guy well understood my requirements over the phone. So I want to draw it. I still have a couple of ...

Re: Freecad daily (many) segfaults

Another find.

freecad-daily (ubuntu ppa) does not show Part Designs create sketch (eg. creating a circle). While the Appimage version do show it.
Do not even show the sketch's plane.

Can somebody confirm?

Re: Freecad daily (many) segfaults

Cylinders.png Thank you very much the pointers. I'll open a thread on "help on using freecad", because I successed creating one perpandicular cylinder, however the second one do not show up (on pipe should be at the bottom of the side, and the other at the top of the side). May be a user error.... ...

Could the above explanation (py2/qt4 vs. py3/qt5, conda link to actual conda.io) added to the freecad github release page?
Your reply as-is would be nice. Or a permalink to your reply.

Thanks for the info by the way.

Re: Github releases

Could someone explain the difference between
FreeCAD_0.18.15713.glibc2.17-x86_64.AppImage
and
FreeCAD_0.18.15710_Conda_Py3Qt5_glibc2.12-x86_64.AppImage ?

Also what is "Conda"?
On the page, it only says "Python 3 (Conda)". Is Python 3 nicknamed Conda?
I'm not that much into the python world...

Re: Freecad daily (many) segfaults

AppImage will likely work and AFAIK FreeCAD from the Daily PPA should work too. Does this look OK: sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade Hmm, seems like it is updated. I'll test more, but it does not crash anymore. Also python-pivy is updated (0.5.0->0.6.4) My libexpat1 version is 2.2.5-3. I have not ap...
