Re: problems with OpenSCAD

I wonder if the DXF files are being created, but in a location that OpenSCAD cannot find (or does not use by default) on my system.

Re: problems with OpenSCAD

I started with 0.16; it was much worse, at least for this particular (OpenSCAD) issue

Re: problems with OpenSCAD

Replacing hull() with union() will not produce geometry that is even close to correct. I was setting $fn to 100, so I removed that, so that I could use the default values. The idea was to simplify all of the geometry so that the Python recursion would stop failing. This did not correct the problem, ...

Re: problems with OpenSCAD

I switched to 0.15. I get no dxf library error messages, and the calculations run to completion, but there are errors. Hull gets "maximum recursion depth exceeded while calling a Python object", so I guess I'm hosed. Perhaps the problems I encountered with dxf libraries and 0.16 was because I had lo...

Re: problems with OpenSCAD

BTW, on my Win 10 machine, running FireFox, all of the dxf files appear to being downloaded, but perhaps not into the place that FreeCAD is expecting. I found a load of them in the folder where I store all of my downloaded files

Re: problems with OpenSCAD

Thanks for the suggestions. I have attached the latest LOG file. Towards the end, notice the repeated attempts to load the DXF libraries. I either need to understand why this is happening (so I can inspect and modify my OpenSCAD code) or the attempts to update need to succeed. I do not need to do th...

Re: Bug submission guidelines

For Windows users, Yorik's post says that the FreeCAD log file may be found here: C:/users/youruser/ApplicationData/FreeCAD

I found the log here on Windows 10: C:/users/youruser/AppData/Roaming/FreeCAD

problems with OpenSCAD

When I try to open a fairly complex OpenSCAD model in CSG format, FreeCAD goes into an infinite loop, asking that the dxf libraries be loaded. I clicked OK over 100 times and then gave up. Note that the dxf files cannot be loaded automatically for some reason, but I did load them manually. This has ...
