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

Tried extruding shape and placing in body for boolean. That didn't work either. Just came up with an error saying fusion of tools failed.

Assuming its because of multiple solids. Will try making a support pad next.

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

If you want to apply an operation from outside of PartDesign you can always apply it to the body. You must not apply it to a feature, an error will be shown and problems may arise later, even if the operation seems to succeed. If you have modeled something outside of PartDesign and you want to cont...

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

Looks like attaching to an origin plane did the trick. :D Also I skipped a step with the attaching. While the PART wb attachment method does work. I found another way :D It works in all Workbenches (I think). 1. First make sure the Origin for your body is visible. (if attaching to flat face, this is...

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

Hi Guys I was looking for a better way to do this when I found this thread. Cheers. Saved me making a new thread :D Before now, my method was: Make the shape string (Draft wb), extrude Shape String (PART wb), then using a clone to get that into a body for boolean. I have also wondered if a shape bin...

Transparency intermittent. fc0.17

Has anyone else had issues with transparency in the last 2 weeks or so? Lately I have had issues with transparency only working if something in the 3d view is selected. If nothing selected it goes semi transparent at best. Selected object could be an edge, a face, or an object from another workbench...

Re: Non-manifold issue.

Ok A few problems there lol. No wonder it wasn't working. I got it now Yay. (I caved and bought a 1/4bspt tap, don't actually need thread on model now, but really nice to know what was going wrong.) I just want to make sure I have this sorted properly before moving on. 1. With the refine settings. H...

Re: Non-manifold issue.

I redid your file and simplified the sweep profile. The SubtractivePipe works. Check Geometry reports a valid solid. Was that just a change to the profile vertical distance constraint? tip radius and everything else looks the same as a few I have tried. Loosing track of which version is broken in w...
