Re: Pad/Pocket affects multiple sketch items. Bug or Feature?

I don't see the need for pocketing parts of a sketch. That's what a sketch is all about: make a pad or pocket from it. And sketches don't have to be complicated. There is e.g. the 7-7-7 rule coming from ProE which recommends that a sketch should have either 7 elements or 7 measures or take not more...

Re: Slicing 3D object

I'm afraid this doesn't work with Mesh Objects. You need first to convert it to an solid and this is practical only possible with small and simple objects, which makes it almost useless. This is up to my knowledge and I'm not an expert working with Meshes at all, there are more qualified guys here a...

Re: Bug? (0.17-git) Sketcher: always over-constrained when referencing external B-Spline

Confirmed. Can you please open a ticket in the bug tracker and reference this forum thread? I can confirm the bug in the original file, but I'm not getting it when I try it myself. Can you make out the difference in work between the origin and my file? Second question: is it now the better way of w...

Re: Texture with grid and output to HPGL file

You wrote "You need to put the macro in the appropriate WB as well." What WB should I use? (I do not see IsoCurve in the list - which is clear because the load was not successful) In the WB where it belongs to, I guess it's the new WB from ChrisG. Have you tried the new Code? If it works you need t...

Re: Bug? (0.17-git) Sketcher: always over-constrained when referencing external B-Spline

I also don't know exactly why this problem exist and it certainly does, but I guess it's about the way you create the object. See the dependency graphs( the bottom one is yours). I create the same object (without problem), but I start straight with the sketcher wb and extrude. Looks like FC doesn't ...
