Could you post the FCstd for that ? It's a work around but sometimes a workaround is better than no workaround. I'd like to see how to make magnetic field lines too.

Re: finishing pass on pocket 3D

thanks, yes that is what I'm meaning. Your workaround is a bit cleaner than mine, although this looks like pretty crude hacking to trick FreeCAD into doing what IMO it should be capable of doing out of the box.
