Re: 3DS Import Fails

Welcome to the forum.
Indeed this file gives errors when it is imported in Freecad.
I have never imported 3DS files before so I am not an expert in this.
I checked in Blender and there the file is imported good.
I think there is a bug in the Feecad importer

Re: Center sketch on a Constraint doen't work.

I see that the function "Center sketch" reacts on dimensions and e.g. symmetry constraints. It does not react on coincident, horizontal and vertical constraints My version: OS: Windows 10 (10.0) Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit Version: 0.19.18760 (Git) Build type: Release Branch...

Re: Wanting to 'pad' a part

Kisoire is right. Converting all three circles to normal lines will also give problems. It is better to give the center of the circles a coincedent constraint instead of giving a lot of dimensions of "0" mm.

Re: Conic extrusion?

Welcome to Freecad and the forum

To solve your problems:
- Delete the wires you made from the sketches
- Place both sketches in the body
- Give one of the sketches a Z value
- Create an Additive loft with the sketches

Re: Help: Pad: Result has multiple solids

Delete the holes in this sketch and it will pad. Make a separate sketch for the holes to pocket them

Re: Polar Pattern Around Point (Not the Origin)

Hi, welcome to the forum

In your sketch "Polar Pattern1.png" in the left down corner is a function "Axis" and in the pull down menu behind is " Select reference" .
Set the view in isometric so you can click the Datum line

Re: Need help with creating curved shape with different heights

Welcome to the forum.
This can best be done in the Part workbench, so not the part design workbench.
Part workbench has a fillet where you can use a variable radius

Re: Compression Spring - From PartDesign?

You can also try the Macro FCSPRING ( I did not use it for over a year and don't know or it works on a recent Feecad version).

Part workbench is a good workbench to use. There is no reason to avoid it because Part design is developed well at this moment
