Re: Windmill project

Maybe this attached pdf is better? I only did the first page and it should look like this:

If it looks ok then I'll add the cell notes to the other pages.

Re: Grouping Sketch Into One Object

I would like to add an offset to this shape in Draft. I have done it before and the way I did it with a different shape was first by exporting my sketch Basically the shape I have is unique and I need to duplicate it, but the duplicate must be exactly 1-1/4" smaller than the original. First I'd edi...

The .pdf lists shows the Spreadsheet cells near the corresponding dimension but it is incomplete, it was done before I knew how the finished model was supposed to look, and if I were to do it again I'd o...

Re: Beginner - Draft mode, dwire task, only entering discrete (xyz) points

Hi Dave, and welcome to the forum! Whenever the mouse is in the view window area, the xyz coordintes in dwire (XYZ) input fields change to follow the mouse pointer (and a line is drawn in the view area). Can I disable this behavior so that only manually entered points cause changes in the view windo...

Re: Windmill project

Re: How do I transform PartDesigner Bodies into a plane representing a 4x8 sheet?

If you have added a whole body no faces can be selected. This is possibly a bug, which others should please confirm After experimenting a bit more, I see that I really don't know.
