Re: A change in file location; how to handle this?

i think i can help you with a small script. But you would have to run it for each assembly separately. I do not have the time for a more complete solution. Would this be ok ? That would be more than perfect, of course! Could also help other FreeCAD addicts with this problem. Still having the strang...

Re: A change in file location; how to handle this?

Correct kbwbe. I think in 90% of all cases I think that only the beginning of the path changes. The exact path is not known yet.

I expected there would be more people with this 'problem'...

Searched for a solution, but could not find any.

A change in file location; how to handle this?

For instance (from Z:\blabla\FreeCAD_files\ to another like for instance D:\raldiedal\etc\FreeCAD_files\). So I am expecting that parts cannot be found, drawings unreachable etc. How to handle this? Any workbench available, or will this be a week of hell to recreate new assemblies / changing locatio...

you get that indeed if your laser and very very small
you put at maximun 1 OD int = 6.9mm and ext = 10.8mm bigger, the edges overlap and it makes bizare thing
;)
Yeah. Try to make these in reality... :shock:

Re: 2.5D tube lasercutting ; how to draw?

@meme2704: The sheet flat and rolled was more to describe, not the way I actually want to do this. Anyway: I think I found the final solution! By using: - FCv0.16 (no, not FCv0.17) - Designing the right sketch :D - "Wrapping a sketch around a cylinder"-macro - Cutout of the part created needs to be ...

Re: 2.5D tube lasercutting ; how to draw?

I searched the forum using chrisb's tip:
Search the forum on how to map a sketch to a cylinder
And then I found this: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 0&start=20

Could be interesting!

If I was able to write code, this is the opportunity to create a tube-laser WB :ugeek:

Re: 2.5D tube lasercutting ; how to draw?

Perhaps you can find a solution based on the following thoughts: - Search the forum on how to map a sketch to a cylinder - Map the sketch to the inside of your tube - map it enlarged on the outside - make a subtractive loft. Something like this. I did not map the faces, it's only to show the loft: ...

Re: 2.5D tube lasercutting ; how to draw?

I also discovered that Partdesign Next (FC V0.17) is quite an improval to Part Design. Cutting cone shapes out of a hollow tube works without errors in the outcome. I definately have to get familiar with this. However, I find it difficult to make the switch to PDNext using older drawings... Still, P...
