Re: FreeCAD Challenge 2019-06 June - Hole Punch

(also tried sketches) Unfortunately part design / additive pipe didn't sweep the upper arc, as long sweep path...

Well done and very fast.
For the drill holes I just added 1 mm, don't wanted calculating. For me it is not practical to give a dimension on the edge of a drill, cause on a drill press I would measure the depth from it's tip.
Will post my fcstd file tomorrow.

Re: Windmill project

Maybe we make a monthly FreeCAD challenge in the showcase forum to build a library of more complex examples. :+1: I prepare something for next month. The whole assembly will have 26 parts, no puzzle everything has it's place, but a lot of room for pads, pockets, cylinders, chamfers, fillets, work f...
