Re: Helix is round and not selecting like vid 08

.... I think you should have a grasp of the basics - why don't you try to model something for yourself? Good idea. I will try to when I can think of something worth modeling. I am aiming toward architecture so I don't have any engineering parts to model; but I want to learn as much as possible abou...

Re: Helix is round and not selecting like vid 08

.... While you are in the Part Design WB, from the pull-down menu try changing Edit > Preferences > Display > Part Design > Shape View > "Maximum deviation depending..." to something less than the default 0.500% (maybe 0.1 %). A smaller value will make your model look better on the display at the e...

I don't think you can answer without quoting. The only buttons up on the top right are "report" or the quote marks.
How do you answer without quoting?

THIS IS THE EDIT:

I HAVE DELETED YOUR REMARKS.

Re: Helix is round and not selecting like vid 08

This comment is OT to this subject but overall relevant to the forum. If you see that it is wrong here why don't you post it (1) in its own topic and (2) in the right forum? The described behaviour can happen if a quote is added after the first submit. Ok, so whoever the powers that be here are, th...

Re: Helix is round and not selecting like vid 08

.... delete Sketch004 and Pad001, create a new Body (it will be named Body001), then make a new Sketch and Pad inside of Body001. With the release of 0.17 these tutorials are obsolete, especially this one, because the Part Design work flow has changed since they were made. I think now it would be b...

Re: Helix is round and not selecting like vid 08

This comment is OT to this subject but overall relevant to the forum.

When I opened my notifications panel, I saw no notifications, but I checked and you had made a comment after my last one on this thread.

Is this a bug in the forum software or did I make a mistake?

Re: Helix is round and not selecting like vid 08

FC won't let me pad when I am in Part or Part Design, but if I switch to Sketcher I can make sketch004 with the -4.00 offset as it does in the video (This is not shown in the video). Then to pad I tried going into Part > Shapebuilder. Select sketch004 Click "Face from edges" radio button>Create>Clos...

Re: Helix is round and not selecting like vid 08

When I pad my sketch004 instead of filling in the center the sketch seems to fill outside. I'll need to l...
