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 ...

Uploading files to GrabCad

I am attempting to upload a FCSTD file to GrabCad and receiving the notification "This model is hidden from GrabCAD Library because it doesn't have any CAD files attached". I have downloaded FreeCad models from GrabCad. The executable file in the model I downloaded was a IGS file. Does this mean I s...

FreeCad compared to other platforms

Hi. I have been using FreeCad for a few months now for fun, and it has been enjoyable. It seems that all of the CAD platforms used by businesses are insanely expensive, so I am wondering if any of what I learn from FreeCAD will transfer into other platforms. Perhaps other have experience with this. ...

Aligning groups of objects

The greatest part of the labor I have encountered in this project is the simple task of aligning groups of objects. I am unable to do it using draft snap, for reasons that confuse my small mind. The snap points just appear in the middle of nowhere and executing the move function results in the group...

The error message is quite more verbose here, but doesn't tell a lot : Traceback (most recent call last): File "<string>", line 1, in <module> <type 'exceptions.IOError'>: Invalid project file /home/xxxx/table leg typewriter.FCStd: basic_ios::clear: iostream error At now I can confirm that your fil...

May it be possible that you used "special" characters when labeling things in your design ?
Could you attach the faulty file ?
This is the file.
