Re: Feature Hole improvements

Hi Evind, Thanks for replying. I take your point about printing threads. And the tolerance class (though I would have "unspecified" as the default option, as speccing tolerances where they are not needed pushes prices up.) I think for thread percentages you misunderstood me when you said it was calc...

Feature Hole improvements

Hi, I am hoping to use some spare time to fix some issues I have with the Feature Hole tool. This is my first time actually developing rather than using FreeCAD so I want to discuss my plans, and confirm a couple of things. Problems I want to address: 1.

Re: DXF export crashes FreeCad

Here you go. Worth noting that I got it fixed, before I did this. Screenshot_20190725_165319.png Turns out that I needed to install the dxf Add-On. What was crashing was: /usr/share/freecad/Mod/Draft/importDXF.py because the line float(FreeCAD.Version()[0]+"."+FreeCAD.Version()[1]) was trying to tak...

Re: Cannot polar pattern about non-normal axis (0.16)

Hi Mark

Thanks for the tip, it worked perfectly. I had to re-do a few things to get the helper pad/pocket in place. But after that it all worked.

Cannot polar pattern about non-normal axis (0.16)

Hi, I am trying to create a polar pattern with holes drilled into the side face of an annulus. I have the first hole/pocket and I can select to either revolve it about its normal axis or I can "select reference". The issue is the axis I need is not the normal axis, and "select reference" allows me t...
