Re: Non-manifold issue.

Made it work with a hole instead of a pocket. :?
Still really curious why it didn't work the first 47 times I tried. :?:

Re: Non-manifold issue.

Here is another attempt.
This time no copy paste. All done from scratch with the proper methods. Looked great in sweep preview. Broke upon completion.

Hi Guys. I keep getting a problem with this part. Seems like a co-planner problem, but have moved everything around and it keeps breaking. It looks good when I use the sweep tool, preview is how it should be, but then I click OK and its broken. Have tried doing the 12mm pocket in the bottom after th...

Re: Bug or PEBKAC? [Solved] (was a bit of both lol)

Hi wandererfan I tried something similar, but couldn't get the symbol to import. Looking at your svg I think its because I didn't make it fit the whole page, or the page fit the hatching. Probably something to do with the blue placement lines in your svg document. Ended up using tech draw to do the ...

Re: Tape measure "Part" wb not compatible with Parts and bodies.

What I get is a measurement between points I didn't click on. like the center of an arc, when I selec...

Re: Attaching sketch to face

I have 2 ways I would aproach this. Fist is quick and dirty. Use the external geometry tool to select all the external edges, then attach a sketch to that and pad/sweep. This will give you problems if you make certain changes earlier in the tree as occ will re-number all the edges and it will become...

Re: .STEP coplanner export problem

1um was not ideal, could have lived with it if I had too, but I don't because 1nm was enough. :?: :roll: :?: :?: :roll: Have you done a Part Check geometry for your model? How do I do a part check? Is that one of those features that requires more understanding of freecad than what I have? I suspect ...
