Re: Strange Fusion

That would explain why all the edges and faces were turned into B-splines. This is an unfortunate side effect of scaling in FreeCAD. This is just my own opinion, but scaling solids is almost never a good idea (unless for mould design where it's necessary to compensate for shrinkage during the manuf...

Re: Strange Fusion

Thanks, it's good now. The problem is that "insert" is invalid, with numerous BOPAlgo SelfIntersect errors. Use https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/images/6/64/Part_CheckGeometry.svg Part CheckGeometry with extra BOP check enabled (see link to find out how). When hovering over the insert object, the St...

will,

Your file is completely empty.
How odd. I re-uploaded the file and test-downloaded, it should work now.

Re: Uploading files to GrabCad

Maybe try the one tagged Conda. It is based on Qt5 and Python3 libraries, while the other one uses Qt4 and Python2, libraries that will be soon deprecated. Few people are using Qt5/Py3 yet so having more people use it to find bugs that might have been missed would be useful. If you have plenty of b...

Thanks. Last week I helped someone local with the same STEP import issue. Using a 0.18_pre build solved it. They are not installers, you simply decompress the archive (the open source 7-zip archiving program is required) then lauch the FreeCAD executable in the bin folder.
Great. I will do that.

Re: Uploading files to GrabCad

When I open the STEP in FreeCAD, the position of all of the parts containers and objects is reset to zero for some reason. This leads to a model which has its parts scattered willy nilly, defeating the purpose. It would have been relevant to provide your full FreeCAD info, as explained in the forum...

Re: Uploading files to GrabCad

...you have upload either a .stp or .stl-file. Then GrabCAD shows your part. GrabCAD cannot show parts that have their native file extensions because there are too many of them... That means you can upload you FC-files normally but additionally you must load in common exchange formats. Do you know ...
