[SOLVED]Print Dependency Graph?

Does anyone know how to print a large dependency graph from a FreeCAD file? I searched the forum but to no avail.

Or, can it be reduced so that the whole graph can be viewed in the document window and then screen capture could be used?

I am using Windows 7 V0.13 Rev 1828

Re: Make holes/pockets in the side of cylinders

The attached file shows one simple way of creating multiple holes in a cylinder. 1. Create a box on the top of the cylinder such that one vertical edge lines up with the sketch axis of the cylinder. 2. Select the overhanging face of the box and create a sketch of the hole you wish to remove from the...

Re: Loft of radiused sketches

Then you did something wrong because loft works using my file "Inlet Duct Profile Planes_normandc.FCStd" on Windows 7 and FreeCAD 0.13.1828. I was able to recreate loft in your file using your sketches but if your sketch is modified in any way the loft fails. So, I also must be missing something. D...

Re: Loft of radiused sketches

Loft did not work for me either but Sweep did using your sketches. I was also able to cut the sweep solid from another solid as shown in the attached file.
You may consider this an alternative to Loft if you want to get on with your work.

Re: Loft of radiused sketches

Please see attached file. I removed all of your Normal constraints on plane0 and plane5 and discovered an extra line segment on plane 0 which I deleted. Even so, it would not loft properly. I then added the vertical sweep direction Sketch005 and used Sweep in the Part workbench. I was able to get a ...

Try Sweep instead of loft. Appears to work OK.

Re: Sweep tool crash

Your sketch001 and contour crashed for me as well when trying to Sweep (Windows 7 V0.13 Rev 1828) unless I selected each line segment of the contour one at a time by holding down the CTRL key. If you move the sketch001 to outside of the contour then you will get a better sweep so that the inside cor...

Re: Draft Module No Longer Functions--[solved]

Thanks guys. I found the files using Windows Search using "Freecad", deleted them, and, voila, the Draft Workbench is back, and it functions! Of course, I lost all of my preferences and custom toolbars, but a small price to pay for getting back to work. In Windows 7: .Freecad file was in C:/Users/.....

Re: Loft Failure--C shaped profile

Since I did not get any response from the community, I decided to do a little more experimentation and eventually solved my own problem a different way. I ended up using Sweep instead of Loft. Please see the attached file showing the difference between loft and sweep for the same profiles. I have ye...
