after I run it, there was no error hint, so it should run well, but nothing is displayed on the screen, could you please give me some more advise?
You need to instruct freecad to show the object you created.
Add the following line:

Code: Select all

Part.show(NURBS_Cubic_surf.toShape())

jaisejames,

can you please look into issue #89 on sheetmetal. It looks like there is a problem: When you set a gap of X mm, you get a gap of 2X mm. It looks like the miter function returns the gap doubled

Re: Fasteners Workbench thread and head scaling

There is a special "threaded rod" used to boolean cut threads in holes. It should be scaled with the same settings so that the cut holes are as wide as nut threads. But I need to double check if this is the case, If not, I'll fix it.

Re: Fasteners workbench based on screw-maker

To center the rod in the hole, it is rather simple. Just select the rim of the hole before pressing the "threaded rod" button. If you select several holes, A rod will be created and centered on each of the selected holes.

Hi jaisejames,

The new system looks as if the metal is twisted. old system looked clean.

Re: Fasteners workbench based on screw-maker

1. can you post your exact freecad version?
goto help -> about FreeCad and click "copy to clipboard". then paste here.
2. are you sure you have the latest fastener workbench? (use add-on manager to update)

Re: help on sheet metal script

Hi jaisejames, Very nice indeed!!! But before I merge it, you need to change the nesting of the folds in the tree view. This is the nesting now: foldwall1.png When you are outside a body, this is ok and should look like that, but inside a body this should look different. All the folds should be one ...

Re: help on sheet metal script

Its a nice feature, but unless most of the issues are resolved, I do not think it should be merged.

Re: Screw Maker

Hi Ulrich, It looks like with OCC V7.2 (FreeCad 0.17 & up) there are some issues with creating nuts with real threads. For example M4 or M5 nut, Iso 4032. the error I get: Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:/Users/shaise/Documents/Personal/freecad/FreeCAD_Macros/ScrewMaker.FCMacro", line 195...
