Re: Path Heights and Depths confusion.

Do I need to follow up this suggestion with some sort of formal suggestion, or is it sufficient that I have brought it to developer's attention. I don't want to appear pushy. I just don't know what the correct procedure is. I have several other Path user problems / possible bugs / suggestions etc th...

Path Heights and Depths confusion.

I am starting to look at Path and have no background in CNC or CAM, so by all means take my suggestion with a grain of salt. For a beginner there are many aspects of Path which are hard to grasp, and one thing I find confusing are Heights and Depths, and I think confusion could be reduced by changin...

Re: Cannot reduce length of pad.

I guess you talk about the pad pdBlade. I can reduce the length to 6.1mm. At this length the blade still intersects the outer frame. Trying to reduce it further to 6mm would create a separate solid. That is not allowed in PartDesign. Thanks chrisb. That explains it. FreeCAD is attaching the blade t...

Cannot reduce length of pad.

I am learning to draw a small fan. It is not a detailed model, simply something representing a fan. I have drawn the case of the fan, the recess where the fan blades go, and the hub. I have a datum plane at the surface of the hub and have drawn a simplified profile of the blade on it. When I pad the...

Re: Possible documentation to help people starting to use FreeCAD

I have investigated this a bit further, although not in full depth. As soon as you add things to a sketch there is a certain danger that the resulting edges will be renamed. If that happens then your model will break, if you have used those edges. Let's hope that the integration of realthunder's co...

Re: Possible documentation to help people starting to use FreeCAD

So my former guess was better: ShapeBinder SlotOutlineSB references edges 13, 14, 15 from the master. In your version 1d these are the middle lines from the upper part. In version 1e edges 13,14,15 are from the lower part. I selected them here: Bildschirmfoto 2019-07-18 um 13.54.29.png . So as a co...

Re: Possible documentation to help people starting to use FreeCAD

Continuing, If I now make the case with slots visible, this is what it looks like, and the sketches for the front and rear slots are nothing like they were. The features in the tree for the front and rear slots show "error indicators". (I don't know the correct term). new case with slots.jpg This is...

Re: Possible documentation to help people starting to use FreeCAD

I had understood that you added the lower part of MasterSketches later. Here is how I understand it now, please confirm that I understand it right: You did not change MasterSketches, the lower part existed before and was unchanged. You only added a coincident constraint which should not affect the ...

Re: Possible documentation to help people starting to use FreeCAD

It's hard to say what happened because I don't have a before and after to know what changes you made. My guess is you probably moved some of the elements in the master sketch that the shapebinder was linked to. It is to be expected, even desired, that the shapebinder will change as you change the e...

Re: Possible documentation to help people starting to use FreeCAD

The upper part remained stable, but Sketch002 references the second ShapeBinder which is a proxy for the lower part of the master sketch. How did Sketch002 look before it broke? Sometimes it happens that a sketch flips to a sketch where still all the constraints are met, but which has a (completely...
