When you hover over the face you see the position in the status line at the bottom. Move the z-component by the negative of that value.

Re: Kite Aerial Photography Rig

Re: Discussion - Possible way ahead for OpenSCAD hull and Minkowski requests?

This happens if you make references across the Body border, either from inside out, e.g. by using in a sketch an external reference to an object outside of the body, or by using a feature from insode of a body in an operation outside, e.g. by using a Pad in a boolean operation.

Re: 2. Versuch: Projekt Bilderrahmen [Anfänger]

Es sind eigentlich nicht die Programme die schwierig sind, sondern die 3D-Modellierung an sich ist unglaublich viel schwieriger als 2D. Dort fängt man einfach an und es funzt. Bei 3D muss man viel um die Ecke denken - 3D eben. "Steile Lernkurve" heißt übrigens nicht nur, dass es schwierig ...

BUT: currently additional constraints have precedence over a block constraint, and even if that is fixed, the block constraint only consume the remaining degrees of freedom. So all other constraints would have to deactivated or deleted to achi...

Re: PartDesign Gui (Editing Revolve and Helix selection logic)

If I uncheck the "Update view" on a Helix edit , and then select an Origin Axis in the 3D continues to update the task panel Axis field. Can someone verify this, it looks like TheMarkster has different results. I cannot confirm. Nothing is updated here if the "Update view" box i...
