Re: 3D PDF files?

Thanks for the link. It does not look like FreeCAD supports either of the two formats required by PDF, so the object would need to go through several formats before it could become a PDF file, add to that, there is currently no way to display 3D PDF files in Linux, and it makes it less interesting. ...

3D PDF files?

Currently when one exports an object to PDF, what you get is a rather low resolution 2D image of the object. The PDF format supports 3D objects that can be rotated, though this is pretty much only supported by Adobe Acrobat reader right now. Some examples are here: https://tetra4d.com/pdf-samples/ W...

Re: I can't make a union.

NormandC's clue lead me down the path to finally complete this object. One can not loft to a sketch that has links to a spreadsheet without first putting that sketch in a body, creating a pad, cloning the body, facebinding the face that came from the sketch, and lofting to that facebinding. I can no...

Re: I can't make a union.

At this point, I can't figure out where these are coming from. This happens when you link PartDesign objects from outside the PD workbench. You should not link to features under a Body, but to the Body itself. It's mentioned in the documentation. Interaction_with_other_workbenches Thanks, I thought...

Re: I can't make a union.

It is almost working. The object gets properly adjusted when I change the parameters, but I get two error messages every time I change a value in the spreadsheet. They are: Sketcher::SketchObject: Links go out of the allowed scope Sketcher::SketchObject: Links go out of the allowed scope At this poi...

Re: I can't make a union.

(I'll get to the kicad WB later, it is not installed on my system, and I have not yet researched how to install it) I have been working on the allowed scope issue. It seems I tend to run into many simultaneous issues. I think I have solved this issue. I was creating the facebinder object from a body...

Re: I can't make a union.

I think , the reason is that you mixed Part Design and Part functionalities quite much.. I had this Problem also in the past, and i use a workaround, when it up to 3D Printing...what i assum in your case too. I create SEPARATE Stl´s and UNION these in Mesh Workbench See my Version 2018-04-29 09_06_...

Re: I can't make a union.

It took a while to find the solution but Backfoot loft is not solidSchermafdruk van 2018-04-29 09-36-13.png This is probably it. I seem to have extreme difficulty remembering to click on the solid checkbox every time I do a a draft. I know I went back and re-did both drafts because I forgot to do t...
