Re: Spreadsheet and sketch parameters: incompatible units for + operator

Done! The base vector of a mirror is also affected.

Re: Spreadsheet and sketch parameters: incompatible units for + operator

Yes, I see that if the object property is normally displayed as "0,00 mm", for example, then it works. But for the value of an offset , it doesn't. I don't many features, this is the only case I found... OS: Windows 7 Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit Version: 0.16.6706 (Git) Buil...

Re: Spreadsheet and sketch parameters: incompatible units for + operator

Thanks, I'll just enter a value in the cell and then later multiply with 1mm. If I enter the value with a unit, it works well with sketch constraints. But the parameter can't be used in object properties, seemingly.

And I'm back to 0.16 now.

Re: Fully constrained, but still two alternatives?

Thanks, I had assumed that horizontal distance and vertical distance constraints were meant for projected distances rather than actual distances. :oops:

Re: Shared parameters between sketches

Of course, other people might have different opinions. I'm doing both then to please everyone 8-) I'm soon finished with the design and I could start with the tech drawings. But I still have two issues posted here: Fully constrained, but still two alternatives? Spreadsheet and sketch parameters: in...

Fully constrained, but still two alternatives?

Please consider the following sketch: Screenshot from 2016-08-12 16-55-12.png If I change the100mm constraint to 10mm, it becomes this: Screenshot from 2016-08-12 16-57-09.png I would have expected the 40mm constraint to remain at 40mm, as you might guess. Even if the sketch is fully constrained, th...

Re: equality constraints seems to not make them equal

Hi, the sketch you drew is ok: the two numbers are referring to the two objects being equals. So the problem must be somewhere else.

Re: How do I enter true dimensions of parts?

Hi,

I'm also a beginner but I think I can help with this: I can see that your sketches are not fully constrained. You need to open them again and add the dimensions of the parts there. For exemple: http://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/index.ph ... int_Length

Re: Shared parameters between sketches

Now this is well past Sketchup level :lol: I really like how the part is created out of one essential sketch, but I don't understand its design! It's ok: I managed to draw the blade in a totally parametric fashion with 3 simple sketches now (except for the 3mm thickness). Next I need to design the s...
