Re: Export to Wavefront OBJ broken in 0.18 final (0.18.16110)

Re: [v0.17] Dependency graph: Graphviz failed to create an image file

I can confirm in FreeCAD v0.18 with Graphviz 2.38, this is still a problem, this time on Windows10 x64. I could make a literal cube in PartDesigner, "Graphviz failed to create an image file", every time. Hot swapped the bin directory provided above into my existing 2.38 install, and voila, dependenc...

Re: How do I transform PartDesigner Bodies into a plane representing a 4x8 sheet?

Once it's in this broken state, the part view no longer updates in realtime. You can pan, zoom, drag, during which nothing new displays until you release the button/key; upon that release, the view snaps to whatever new orientation you did. I tried the Fit All view button from the GUI, it did nothin...

Advice on how to export from FreeCAD to my local CNC shop

Ok - once again forgive noobness... I've spent some time, and constructed a near-complete 1st design of my arcade, in PartDesigner (see pic). It's designed so each piece is a Body in the arcade, and then Cloned into the sheets at right. The two sheets are both 4x8 geometric primitives, which I use t...

Ahhh I thought you meant the physical mouse :-) I'm in CAD navigation style.

Re: How do I transform PartDesigner Bodies into a plane representing a 4x8 sheet?

Ok - this has become a more interesting bug. I now have 2 proofs, that it also breaks choosing Geometry and selecting a face..but only after a certain complexity in the file. File1 works fine - activate Body001, you can create a ShapeBinder, base a sketch off it, all is well. Note, there is only 1 c...

Re: How do I transform PartDesigner Bodies into a plane representing a 4x8 sheet?

This is when I found ShapeBinders - which are quite buggy to create, by the way. If you rotate the camera while creating them, it's broken until you reload the file... not fun. Picking a face also doesn't seem to work. I frequently use ShapeBinders, and I frequently move the camera while creating t...

Re: How do I transform PartDesigner Bodies into a plane representing a 4x8 sheet?

Also - should I build it differently altogether? Not altogether, but there are some aspects to consider. Instead of repeating the length of Pad002 you could use Expressions to reuse the length of Pad001. After reading bejant's post I head a look at the dependency graph as well, and found more issue...

How do I transform PartDesigner Bodies into a plane representing a 4x8 sheet?

Hello, My version is 0.18, I'm attempting to design an arcade cabinet in the PartDesigner. I have 2 goals - to model it fully assembled in 3D, and to prepare a .dwg for my local shop to CNC. This is only my 3rd day of FreeCAD, so forgive my noobness. I've attached the file and a photo. So far, I've ...
