Re: Vid 11: Rectangle wrong plane and extra body

.... Ok, it was a snarky attempt at humor. :oops: It was in reference to and here we are again: These videos are made for 0.16 and as you should have learned from all the other video tutorials you have worked through: there was no body construct in 0.16. All of Roland's videos are 0.16 videos. I gu...

Persistance is a virtue at times. Perhaps this is not one of those times. :lol: :lol:

I don't quite understand the reference of this comment.
Does this refer to the difference between the version the video tutorial and the present version of FC I am using (17)?

Re: Vid 11: Rectangle wrong plane and extra body

It looks like bejant's version of roland's propeller is completed, thanks to help from NormandC, Chrisb, and Markster. Bejant goes back and resets the transparency of fusion to 50 He also moves some of the appearance settings from 3 to 1. Strangely, I followed him, but mine were set to 2. video_tuto...

You have transparency set to 50 in the view tab for the cylinder. Change it to 0, right-click and choose mark to recompute, then F5 to refresh. That should remove the transparency.
Thanks.

Re: Vid 11: Rectangle wrong plane and extra body

We seem to be having a bit of a tug-of-war about which video to use. Bejant's videos are better tutorials since Roland just does things without showing them and assumes the viewer is at a more advanced level. In bejant's video, at minute 3:47, he sets cylinder transparency at 50%. He might have done...

Re: Vid 11: Rectangle wrong plane and extra body

A question on the Fusion operation. I do not know if it worked because the propellors are solid but the cylinder is transparent. One thing I notice during the sweep operation is that it did not seem to be necessary to click "Sweep Path" to run the sweep. Would anyone know if this is why the cylinder...

Re: Vid 11: Rectangle wrong plane and extra body

I have a question about which elements to select for the sweep operations. Should the sketch and the helix be selected at the same time? minute 6:17 of bejant's video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FuDJq26tH4&list=PLrEZShA-NGC9IIpq9chta_PKAnEjJGe8q&index=10&t=0s It looks to me as if bejant swept ...

Re: Vid 11: Rectangle wrong plane and extra body

.... At 5:19 Roland creates a horizontal distance constraint between the lower left corner of the rectangle and the sketch origin. You created a point on object constraint on the sketch vertical axis instead. (I am working in bejants version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FuDJq26tH4&list=PLrEZSh...

Re: Vid 11: Rectangle wrong plane and extra body

This file may be corrupted. No, this file is perfectly fine, and everything works as expected. but the elements still do not place up there. My animation clearly shows that the elements do not place up there! You need to drag them above and drop them over the document label, but once you lift your ...

Re: Vid 11: Rectangle wrong plane and extra body

It would make it so much simpler for others if you always provided the link to the video you are talking about. Your title mentions vid 11. But in your post you write I got to about minute 5:38 of the video: rolands propeller. OK, so you're talking about the Learn FreeCAD Channel by Roland Frank. N...
