Re: freecad 0.17 12852 x64 problem

Have you've tried "Make Compound" function?

It is in the Part drop down menu.

As far as having issues making a union, it may be due to the overlapping parts. Out of curiosity is there a reason for three different parts?

Re: In memoriam: Roland Frank (r-frank) 1970-2017

I'm generally at a loss for words in times of passing. I appreciate Roland's YouTube videos they have really helped me understand 3d modeling, I'm sure he has made huge contributions to the community as well.

May Roland rest in peace and I wish comfort for his friends and family.
