There was a discussion about that, perhaps even a feature request, to confirm with a double click in the list.

Re: unable to export boolean common of two bodies to an amf file

This is obviously an error with the PartDesign boolean. Besides that, if your model is of similar structure, you should not use a boolean, you should use a pocket instead, or to be more general: use the inverse operations, i.e. Pad <-> Pocket, Revolve <-> Groove, AdditiveXY <-> SubtractiveXY.

Re: Error while generating a circular path?

I tried to set the tolerance/accuracy to 0.0001 mm, but I got the same output file. In order to set 1 micrometer I should set the Preferences to allow 6 decimal digit. I don't understand: 1 µm = 1/1000 of a mm = 0.001mm. And you can set µm directly: Bildschirmfoto 2021-06-24 um 15.56.38.png Perhaps...

Re: zwei Bodys auf der Grundlage eines Sketch erstellen

Um es ganz deutlich zu machen: Du brauchst 1. einen ShapeBinder, wenn sich das z ureferenzierende Objekt nicht im selben Body befindet und 2. eine externe Referenz zu ebendiesem ShapeBinder.

Re: Kantenüberstand in FreeCAD (Hilfe)

Ob Kante oder Fläche ist im Sinne der Stabilität egal. Ein Sketch zum Anheften gibt es nicht. Du legst das Sketch auf den Rand, indem Du ihn auswählst und dann das Sketch erzeugst. Auch nachträglich lässt sich diese Zuordnung treffen: Rand auswählen, https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/images/d/df/Sketc...

Dann würde ich auf Letzteres tippen. Man erzeugt damit eine Verbindung z.B. zu einem anderen Sketch. Das ist aus Sicht des Sketches in dem Du gerade arbeitest als extern anzusehen.

Re: Possible New FreeCAD Logo

the user experience and design of a panel, without further direction, needs someone that is familiar with the tool and can tell with precision what every button / area does. The point are the "further directions". Agryson, who created lots of icons, wasn't familiar with all of the functio...

Re: How to expand a 3D box?

Not parametric: mesh and use Unwrap mesh. Or do it the other way round: construct the box in SheetMetal workbench with the appropriate gaps and use the lay flat method.
