Re: [0.17 PDN] How to engrave a ShapeString in a PDN-Body

There you seem to have overlays of characters. If I remove or hide all ShapeStrings except ShapeString005 I see the same text without the distracting doubles. Sorry I have no idea what you are talking about. Perhaps a screenshot or something? I think you must be looking at another document. I did l...

Re: [0.17 PDN] How to engrave a ShapeString in a PDN-Body

I'm not digging that quote wormhole any deeper. :? My question was how do I chose a monospaced font. Not How do I change the font . <-- this is the question that has been answered. I wans't asking How do I choose a monospaced fon't using freecad exclusively. I know almost nothing about font's or wri...

Re: Loft with Cuts - a Bug?

Hi TheMarkster A quick 2 cents while I'm having lunch. You want a solid with a hole in it. Thats 2 features. Treat them as such and you won't get these problems. Try to take shortcuts and make them a single feature and you will get a headache. Always try to avoid multiple perimeters in a single sket...

Re: [0.17 PDN] How to engrave a ShapeString in a PDN-Body

In the properties of the ShapeString, you can change the font used. See Draft ShapeString (Font File property) That wasn't really what I was asking. I was wondering how do I choose a mono-spaced font from the options provided? I didn't see any property’s or data on the fonts available describing th...

Re: [0.17 PDN] How to engrave a ShapeString in a PDN-Body

Oh, there's something really weird in your file. In your Body, the features from Pad to Hole002 are all nested one inside the other as if they were Part objects. I've never seen that inside a Body. :? That happens every time I use hole. On both my 14.04 machine and 16.04 where I made these files. I...

Re: [0.17 PDN] How to engrave a ShapeString in a PDN-Body

Almost success. Selection_233.png I think if I didn’t use the circular text macro this would have been a lot cleaner, but much much harder too. I Just highlighted all shapestrings in FcString, right clicked and moved into body. I first tried to attach them to face, but it deleted all other placement...

Re: [0.17 PDN] How to engrave a ShapeString in a PDN-Body

I have a clue whats going on now. Its possibly some kind of placements bug. But there is other weird stuff happening. I don't think its my method (Its always my method, never bugs :mrgreen: ) I can't get the text to fuse to the fitting. But I can get the fitting to fuse to the text. Which wouldn't g...
