Re: Crash on SVG import: next steps?

Hi Normand, Thanks for the additional information, this is Fedora 29 as I had indicated below my FreeCAD version info (since it was indeed not properly detected). I see copr has nightly builds enabled, I might look into it too (https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/g/freecad/nightly/). Edit: I hav...

Re: Crash on SVG import: next steps?

Hi chrisb, Thanks for your quick reply and the pointer!

[SOLVED] Crash on SVG import: next steps?

Good evening everyone, First, a big thank you to all of you FreeCAD authors, it's a great tool to model parts when doing 3D printing! I have used 0.16 a while ago and got back to using it, this time on 0.17 (all those new features!). I seem to get FreeCAD 0.17 to reliably crash on SVG import using t...

Re: From FreeCAD To The Real World

Hi there, I used FreeCAD to design a small part that would fit on top of my son existing wooden train cargo container and which allows to carry a car instead. The FreeCAD file and STL part + other pictures are available at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2718451 I am extremely pleased with the res...

Re: In memoriam: Roland Frank (r-frank) 1970-2017

Hi there, I am also very sad to hear about Roland's passing. I indeed discovered he was the author of the Youtube FreeCAD tutorial videos I came to love and appreciate so much. It's through them that I overcame the FreeCAD learning curve, for me who is not familiar with CAD. I second the idea of fin...

Re: Electronic enclosure design approach.

Hi there, I also wanted to send a BIG thank you to you Roland for this great video! I learned some much more than by reading FreeCAD documentation alone and this is of great help as I am designing an enclosure for my board. I am also going through your other videos and I am learning a lot. Thanks ag...

Re: CuraEngine Plugin

Hi, I stumbled upon the same problem while following the FreeCAD Manual 3D printing section. I am installing the Cura Workbench using the addonsintaller.FCMacro. Is there a way to make it so that the installer points to Yorik's version instead of the original author's version (since the latter does ...

Re: [SOLVED] Having a hard time with snapping tools

Ok, this makes sense. In the meantime, I'll just add a note in the manual about correctly setting the values/precisions to 3 decimals then.

Re: The FreeCAD manual

Hi there,

Ok, that makes sense too. Wiki editing is easier so this means the chances of getting contributions/translations is indeed higher.
