Re: Tag dressup problems - disappearing when saved, no selection indicator when moving.

I have a little bit more information on the holding tags that go missing when a file is saved and re-opened. I created a simple model with a contour around the outside. I applied the tag dressup with my default of four tags. The default tag dimensions are 5mm long and 2.25mm high. Tag 1.png Save the...

Re: Path PocketShape. Unable to verify final depth.

This problem was already raised I think he solved it or at least acknoweldged it. Thanks. I don't know how I missed that today. I can remember reading it when posted, but I wasn't trying PocketShape at that stage. I would still like to know why it won't pocket to the final depth I specify.

Path PocketShape. Unable to verify final depth.

I'm attempting to learn more about PocketShape and am having some success with pockets with bottoms, but when I attempt to pocket through the stock, I get the following pop-up where I assume I should click OK to verify that the final depth is what I want. (The default final depth is 3mm which is the...

Virus warning in .19.18024x64

I have just downloaded the latest .19 Pre for Windows 64 and just for interest I clicked on "Help - Automatic python modules documentation" and promptly got a warning from Avast antivirus about a virus called IDP.Generic which it then quarantined. I then tried the same in .19.17877 and had no proble...

Re: Sketcher: can't select point in reveser plane view

Hi, I just tried to construct a triangle on XZ plane when viewing from "behind" : view 4. I missed joining the last two points to complete the figure. However, when I attempt to select the two points to create a coincident point constraint, I find it is impossible. Each time the line gets selected,...

Re: Sketcher: can't select point in reveser plane view

On the few times I have had this problem, I have found that Box selection works.
I can't guarantee it always works but it has for me.

Re: Dogbone dressup not on one corner

Use "Adaptive" - it works the way you want. ;) HTH Thorsten Thanks for replying. I haven't got as far as looking at Adaptive yet. I'm still working my way through the dressups. The only problem I can see with your suggestion is that the tool will spend most of its time rubbing already machined surf...

Re: Dogbone dressup not on one corner

Retested with the version below and it still works: - load file PathTest_13c.FCStd - mark DogboneDressup for recompute - recompute and there it is. Perhaps it is a precision issue, I have set tolerance and accuracy both to 0.01mm. Thanks chrisb. I'll play around a bit more and see if I can track do...

Can someone with a newer version than mine retest this please.

P.S. Just tested: Recompute solves the last upload as well.
Recompute does not work for me but fixed incision does. Custom incision does not work on this one.

Re: Dogbone dressup not on one corner

Does this warrant a ticket No, I don't think so yet. It works here out of the box. Can you reproduce the lacking recompute? If I delete the Dogbone dressup and add it again, it always needs a re-compute. Here is another model I have just drawn using a slot instead of a step, and again it is the sam...
