STL Rotation

I'm trying to rotate the nozzle for a 3D printer cooling fan: https://github.com/OpenSourceEcology/3D-Printer-Part-Library/blob/master/leftnozzle.stl - system info below. Is the STL rotation buggy? It allows me rotation by a single angle for any of the 3 axes. However, trying to do a second rotation...

Re: 1.7% Market Share of CAD Software

Can anyone point me to other threads on FreeCAD usability and forward motion in terms of the FreeCAD interface? We've been using FreeCAD as our core tool since 2 years now, migrating from Sketchup. Sketchup does not allow for any real engineering, while FreeCAD does. I made the self-proclaimed best ...

Re: Optics in FreeCAD

Excellent work. With some headscratching, we may soon be able to figure out how to couple cheapo 500W laser diode stacks to fibers for building laser cutters for metal. 500W laser Diodes are available for around $1000 like https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/diode-laser-hair-removal-500w-808nm_60...

1.7% Market Share of CAD Software

Re: Copying STL Files

Hello ickby, Thank you. Yesterday the move and rotate tools were not working for me with an STL for some reason. I tried again today with the same STL - it works. I have noticed that starting a new document helps with a clean slate. Converting STLs to solids works well in FreeCAD when the derivative...

Copying STL Files

Hello, I have imported an STL file into FreeCAD, and am using the Draft Workbench. I am trying to copy and rotate the STL object. This thread - http://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=15185&p=120865&hilit=convert+stl+to+step#p120865 - shows that the STL must be converted to a solid first. I ...

Cloud Collaborative FreeCAD

Was there any discussion on this forum regarding building a cloud collaborative CAD solution? I saw a 2012 post by Juergen stating that cloud is the eventual direction, but are there simple, innovative architectures for implementing collaborative CAD without making any deep changes to FreeCAD right ...
