Re: 0.19 stable

0.19 stable would be nice. I've been circling the website for 9 months waiting for it.
The big reason I wait: I don't want to be left with a model broken because of in-development changes to the file format or document organization.

Re: Projecting an ellipse on an inclined plane

I will try to reproduce on the Mac. What are the exact steps? You can try this file: ellipseprojection.FCStd 1) Create a datum point 2) Select "DatumPlane Offset Incline" as a reference 3) Select "DatumLine Ridge" as a second reference 4) Try "Proximity Point 1" as Attachment mode. The order of ref...

Re: Projecting an ellipse on an inclined plane

If there are no objections, I'll start a bug report on this. It's possible it's a platform-dependent issue (MacOS).

Re: Projecting an ellipse on an inclined plane

Odd. It's never worked for me.

Re: Projecting an ellipse on an inclined plane

Use a datumplane and datumpoint with proximity attachment mode between the sketch and edge. Then use the point for external geometry and hook the ellipse on it. ;) Thanks. That works beautifully since I know and can define the line along the top of my part. Of course, I took two steps forward and h...

In this case make a cross section "provisional"
Thank you. This sounds promising. Can you elaborate on how?
The "clipping plane" view option is greyed out in Sketcher. The only other related thing I found was "Sketcher->View Section" which is the wrong plane.

Ticket #4018 - Projecting an ellipse on an inclined plane

I'm working with a model that requires me to constrain to projections of an ellipse to faces in different planes. I've confirmed with some Googling that the projections are ellipses as well. However, FreeCAD projects these as B-Splines. This is in Sketcher, as external geometry. That's not all that ...

Re: Fillet geometry error

This is a display artefact, mainly due to deflection setting. You can change it at body level (view tab of the property editor) Tried this morning. This is definitely it. Both Angular deflection and deflection improve the view. More importantly, knowing it's a view artifactly only, and knowing how ...

Re: Fillet geometry error

In your file datumplane is not attached, it's not tangent. That gives an error. Thanks for taking a look. I intentionally put the datum plane to be slightly below the top of the object. (Z=14.9mm; object has 15mm radius.) That allowed me to show the portion sticking above the plane easily in pictur...
