Re: Part vanished... or not?

Tried to proceed with the 'recover'-file. - Placed the image back again, scaled and repositioned; - Created a pad of the sketch; - Saved and closed the file; - Reopened the file again, but it seems it is still corupted: I get the same results as before. I will make a fresh startfrom scratch and see ...

Re: Part vanished... or not?

chrisb is a guru, so it seems :geek: Unfortunately I failed trying to reproduce your workaround, using winRAR. Still, I am curious how you managed this? I opened both Document.xml files, but then? The original contains quite a lot of "<properties>". Which one to choose? Just overwriting Document.xml...

SOLVED! Part vanished... or not?

Working for two years now with FC, but this is new to me. I guess I did 'something', but what? 1. I created a part, based on a scaled jpg file and saved it. 2. Restarted FC (version description below, yes it's older, but it normally works fine). 3. Opened the file, but it seems 'broken'? Combo view ...

Your version is utterly outdated. You should consider upgrading to 0.18 or even 0.19.

Re: STL to solid - large filesize

The output STEP file is 33.6 MiB: http://quaoar.su/tmp/yosemite-sam.zip -Downloaded the STEP-file; - Saved it as a FreeCAD file; - Upscaled it to a ±3500mm wide giant; - Convert it to a solid (hollow, not filled), filesize 7MB - check link: https://we.tl/t-wbIW6yHNcz All fine, so it seams... Now I ...

Image on part-disappear in assembly

Placing an image on a plane of a part is easy using the image WB. Rotating, placing, scaling; it all works fine. I am creating a 3D housing of an industrial PC and I like to project an image on the front and back of the housing. The images are in fact all possible connections (quite a lot), so I do ...

Re: STL to solid - large filesize

Out of curiosity, why don't you just scale then slice the STL directly with software like Blender ? Like I asked: 2. Maybe another workaround possible (maybe even without using the brilliant FreeCAD possibilities)? Already trying to do something using Meshlab (it seems I am getting somewhere) but B...
