Re: Merge sketches and other questions

I have a new question and was not sure if I should post a new topic or just continue here. I am sure it is a noob question again. My buddy uses solidworks and I have the Step file. I put that into Freecad and got all the needed dimensions from it. I build the item and then tried to add the final cha...

Re: Merge sketches and other questions

I am now trying to figure out how to fuse and union items Working in PartDesign you don't have to fuse or union anything. It is done automatically with each feature. I think it is correct to use a PartDesign->Hole for a circular pocket. Set Profile to none and set diameter and depth. There isn't mu...

Re: Merge sketches and other questions

I got numerous errors about the improper uses of "holes". It appears that you are using these objects for general purposes rather than for threaded holes. Threaded holes have specific requirements for thread sizes that do not work correctly for general purpose openings. Use "pocket" instead. It is ...

Re: Merge sketches and other questions

Concerning the not working refinement on the holes I have created another post . And I forgot a general remark about your model: You should consider modeling only half of the thing and then mirror it. I will give that a try. I have not used the mirror function yet and tried that. I am now trying to...

Re: Merge sketches and other questions

Do I combine it all to make it one part so I can put in chamfers where needed? Yes, use Part->Union. Also, on the outside you can see all the basic drawing lines there. It prints fine on the 3d printer with STL file and when I go to CNC I would think it would be fine, but if it all looked as one su...

Re: Merge sketches and other questions

I have another noob question. I started with a basic sketch, pad it. Then on the different faces made more sketches and pad them. I got the part that I want, but having issues putting the needed chamfers where needed and sizes needed. Do I combine it all to make it one part so I can put in chamfers ...

Re: Merge sketches and other questions

There are two places in the property panel where it appears you can change the z-offset. Only one of them will work in most situations. One place is in the "Base" property heading (does not work here) and the other is in the "Attachment" property heading (works). This can be confusing at times, and...

Re: Merge sketches and other questions

If I understand what you are trying to do you just need to modify the z attachment offset of Sketch006 to something like z = -3mm. Snip macro screenshot-359055.png Note: it is not recommended to attach sketches to faces due to some issues it can cause if you decide later to modify some of the earli...

Re: Merge sketches and other questions

I have another noob question and thanks in advance for helping. I have an object and I created a sketch on the face. I had some failure to validate face error and fixed that I think. I went to the face, created a sketch and tried to overlay the original sketch with the create an edged linked to an e...

Re: Merge sketches and other questions

The sketch has an error, hence the unsolved message. Always try to pay attention to the solver messages so when there's an issue you can resolve it before continuing. In the constraints list delete the last constraint (a vertical constraint). Thank you. I see the error message now, but I do not kno...
