Re: Handling Tessellated Shapes.

is this something the Path workbench can handle? I do not know anything about OpenSCAD or hulls, but I tried opening your file and playing with the Path WB. It is clearly possible to set up a Path Job and make paths of various sorts. I am not sure what to do with a tessellated "hot dog", ...

Seems like that is very easy to remedy. Just make two profile sketches at the correct angles instead of trying to make do with one in the middle.

He may be ghosting the forum, but the last time he was logged in was May 2020.

Re: Offset

It should be generally understood that "assignments" in the tracker, especially for features, are not quite the same as assignments from your boss or from your spouse. The assignment of a feature means that the assignee plans to take a look. There is no commitment to ever finish. In this c...

Re: Sketch on body face flipping problem

I played with this example a bit more and came up with an even more curious observation. The attachment details and model shape seem to depend on the orientation of the end of the line in Sketch003. When the end of Sketch003 is exactly vertical there is a different result from what was shown previou...

Re: Sketch on body face flipping problem

Here is a very simple-minded exhibit of what is commonly called sketch flipping. Incomplete shape: Start.PNG Select lower right open ends and use coincident constraint. What was wanted: Expected.PNG What actually happened: Actual.PNG The upper right line segment has "flipped". Some cases a...

Not sure why you would think such a thing. The FCStd file format is completely different, for example. I want my stuff to be working, not experimental.

Re: Sketch on body face flipping problem

Very interesting - could you elaborate? The distinction might be fleeting, but there is a major difference between the classic "sketch flipping" and what you are seeing. Sketch flipping is an old problem, and it has been quite actively addressed and mostly controlled. Here is a set of bef...

Re: Sketch on body face flipping problem

sure here: I tried multiple ways to duplicate the so-called flip, following your video, and I could not. I am using a very recent version of FC, 20.25306. Then I realized you were using version 0.19. When I tried that version I was able to make the *sweep* flip. Neither sketch actually flipped in a...

Re: Urgent Help Needed : all my work has disappeared !

I saw the same 90%. An image shows up, but so do several fatal error messages.

This is clearly not from the FreeCAD Master branch, so there is little more I can say. I recommend you take the discussion to the RT github pages. I believe that is where the bug reports are best addressed.
