Re: FreeCAD Subreddit Breaks 1000 Users; Help Wanted

Other platforms are mostly just a dilution of attention, its far better to tell them that FreeCAD pretty much lives on this forum, asking questions on other platforms just massively decreases your chances of getting a quality timely answer or any answer at all.

Re: Expression doesn't resolve correctly

Without the file it's guesswork, but my guess is that there may be conflicting constraints in a sketch or auto recomput has been turned off.

Re: How to get wiki editing permissions

Having a Chinese language forum is of course a good idea, but we will need several Chinese/English bilingual people to volunteer to be moderators for the forum and to stick with it or find replacements if they want to stop. New first posts need to be approved or disapproved in a timely manner by bil...

Re: Open sketch for DXF and SWG

I tried to install new FreeCad release 0.17.13528 and 0.17.13522 but both don't run on my computer. OS: Windows 10 Word size of OS: 64-bit should install and run fine. If you mean that FreeCAD installs but then does not run, then the most common reason on Windows seems to be that you need to update...

Re: Add a ball end mill to the Path Workbench Tool Library

Version: 0.17.13522 (Git) Hi a tip on versions.... your version is out of date, we have occasionally released minor bug fix versions of the then current release version of FreeCAD when it is important enough, which is why yours is out of date at this time, however generally all bug fixes, new featu...

Re: Diffing through .fcstd files

Hi everyone, I not sure how relevant this is, but there is a pack/unpack tool for FreeCAD project files in FreeCAD....from memory its tools menu...project or something like that. I was wondering if you could either use it or look at its code to see how it works and what it does?

Seems odd a geometric primitive would have issues.
That is a known bug of the CheckGeometry tool. FreeCAD can't do anything about it, because the geometry check comes from the OCC kernel.
Hi guys, just wondered if the problem still exists in occ7.3? Likely does, I suppose.

Re: Unable to invoke sketch on face or pocket on stl object

If you are trying to modify the solid in PartDesign workbench, did you put the solid into a body? I am then unable to pocket the rectangle in order to cut or slice the object. What error messages do you get? Might help if you select the option to send error messages to report view, if you haven't al...
