Re: Chamfer edges deletes my objects (newbie)

chrisb,

Thank you so much for this help! I am trying to use your script. I don't see the part about making tangents explicit - where is that?

Re: Chamfer edges deletes my objects (newbie)

That was my thought also, so this version of the SVG IS the simplified version. I played around with simplifying and removing entire sections of the artwork until I had something that would work -- and it was just another blob. I will see if I can try simplifying again with some slightly different s...

Re: Chamfer edges deletes my objects (newbie)

Extrude settings:

I have tried 0.1 and -0.1 angles, and it still makes the object disappear. I've tried a variety of extrusion lengths along with the angle settings too.

Re: Chamfer edges deletes my objects (newbie)

Guys!! I have a model!! I'm so excited. It's a completely weird random shape, lol! But it's exactly what I'm trying to do. I'm so grateful for your help in getting me here. I have two further questions: 1) Does anyone have any ideas why some of my svg files work, and some don't? I'm betting that ALL...

Re: Chamfer edges deletes my objects (newbie)

I got one to work!! I tried yet another svg file. I decided to try one with no corners. I'm not sure now whether the corner angles are my problem, or if I just happened to be using problematic svg files up until now, but I'm hoping that this knowledge will let me move forward. All of the images I ne...

Re: Chamfer edges deletes my objects (newbie)

chrisb, I think the picture you posted is exactly what I am trying to do. Somehow I cannot make the extrude work with angles. My object disappears every time. Here are my steps: New document Create Cylinder (from the Part workbench) Select the Cylinder from the Tree view. In the Combo View, Model ta...

Re: Chamfer edges deletes my objects (newbie)

Thank you everyone. I am trying some of your suggestions - unfortunately I have to follow tutorials for every suggestion (my base knowledge is still very low) so it is taking me some time to figure out whether it will work. Thus far I have not successfully been able to taper anything using the extru...

Chamfer edges deletes my objects (newbie)

I am brand new to FreeCAD and relatively new to modeling in general. I am trying to make a set of stamps, each with a unique shape on it. I have figured out how to import my svg files into FreeCAD, how to extrude them, and how to cut the shape out of a flat cylindrical disc. What I can't figure out ...

Chamfer makes my object disappear (newbie)

I'm brand new to FreeCAD and pretty new to modeling in general (but I am very determined). I am trying to create a series of stamps. Each stamp will have a unique shape embossed into it. I have figured out how to import my svg shapes and extrude them, and punch them out of a cylindrical slab. I even...
