How to mirror a body with fillets, chamfers etc.?

Hello, I'm always struggling with the mirror feature. My task is to model a symmetric part, so I start by modelling half of the part in "Part Design" Workbench, and then try to mirror everything. I created the attached demo, where I have half of the part with a cut-out, chamfer and fillets. Now I wa...

Re: How to unlink an edge linked to external geometry ?

I found a solution in this thread: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=26683 You need to go to PartDesign->Validate Sketch->'Delete constraints to external geom." (in group for Invalid constraints) This will remove all constraints or references to external linked geometries. The trick i...

Re: PDN: bug in "Mirrored Feature" with multiple features

The bug is a also present in FreeCAD_0.17.13050_x64_dev_win.
Mirror fails on any fairly modest complex part, like the attached cube with a grove, and a linear pattern -> mirror -> only the cube is mirrored. The other features are missing / removed.

Re: Edit imported step file

@Tugge: After playing around a bit, I found this solution: Import your Step-File. In my case It has only one solid object ("called obj1"). When I try to create a sketch, I get the same error as you. I moved the obj1 to just below the document root in the model tree view, and deleted everything else....

Re: How to unlink an edge linked to external geometry ?

@Willem: I opened the View->Panels->"Tree view" but I can't see any "lines". I just see the normal model tree with the body-object, the origin-object, the original solid and the sketch @DeepSoic: Thank you for your answer. I installed GraphViz to see the Dependency Graph, and your Lattice2 Add-On fr...

How to unlink an edge linked to external geometry ?

Hello, I want to re-create a part in FreeCad that I have only as STEP-file (with only one part/Piece/solid). So I load the solid, and create a new sketch. I transfer all the important edges from the original part to the new sketch. Up to this point everything is good. I now want to delete the origin...
