Re: Loft in part design failing depending on offset

I don't think it's worthy of a bug report if it only happens with an invalid sketch (unless it causes FreeCAD to crash).

Re: Is there a way to zoom a spreadsheet view?

There is a way to shrink the row height via python. Would it merit a feature request to have a slider of a sort somewhere at the bottom of the spreadsheet dialog that scales the size of the spreadsheet ? I don't know. You can already adjust the row sizes individually. In the image below the red cir...

Re: Padding or Revolving more than one sketch

In my opinion, however, I would suggest the same for the development team, if the sketch is fully constrained and closed, it should allow to Pad, Revolve, or any other commands (in Part Design WB) as similar to Part WB. My understanding is allowing multiple solids in a single body would break some ...

Re: Small change to pad diameter gives an error

In terms of geometrical constraints versus dimensional constraints, a dimensional constraint is for example a radius of a hole or the length of an edge, something requiring a number. In the sketch with the 4 holes you could have applied an equality constraint to all 4 holes, and then only 1 dimensio...

Re: Small change to pad diameter gives an error

As Chris mentioned you have mapped a sketch to a pad face, which can lead to issues if you change the pad in certain ways. It's better to map to the xy_plane and offset the attachment in the z direction to put it where you want it. To fix the model: Click on Pocket in the tree, press spacebar to mak...

Re: Is there a way to zoom a spreadsheet view?

There is a way to shrink the row height via python.

Code: Select all

for ii in range(1,99):
    App.ActiveDocument.Spreadsheet.setRowHeight('A'+str(ii),1)
After running this in the python console, right click the document name in the tree and select Mark to recompute, then F5 to recompute.

Re: "shortening" a STEP file

If you set the Pocket Midplane property to True it will make the hole go all the way through.

Re: Thumbnail preview

Do you have the preference set to save the thumbnail into the document when saving files? Edit -> preferences -> general -> document -> Save thumbnail into project when saving document.

Re: Spreadsheet convert to string

A workaround: Right click in property view, enable show all checkbox. Right click again in property view, add property of type App::PropertyString. Set this new string property to cell A1 using expressions. Be sure to uncheck the option to prefix group name. Snip macro screenshot-9ad942.png In the s...
