Re: Loop when recomputing pipe when right corner mode selected

Answering my own question.

I had forgotten to put the cross section sketch in a plane orthogonal to the path sketch.
It appears that for the transform corner mode this does not matter, but for the right and round modes it does.
Maybe some extra validation should be done here to prevent the lockup.

Loop when recomputing pipe when right corner mode selected

I am trying to model a simple wire handle with right or swept round corners using an additive pipe in part design. The cross section sketch contains a single circle geometry. The profile path sketch contains a 3 segment line. Both are fully constrained. I can make this work in a simple test file (at...

Re: Help required with PartDesign AdditivePipe

Ok Now got the object I want. Decided to use additive loft instead of additive pipe because My path is always linear. Tried to put all the profiles into one loft but the result was weird. But no crashes. A two profile loft was fine but any more and things went a bit crazy. So final attempt was just ...

Re: Help required with PartDesign AdditivePipe

Without your FreeCAD info, a file, and a precise description of what you have done it is difficult to tell. Well, as for me, he didn't even bother downloading my file and checking it, so if my help is going to be ignored, I'll simply stop trying to. He's going straight to my ignore list. Hey, that ...

Re: Help required with PartDesign AdditivePipe

I made a little more progress today. At one point I had a working 3 section pipe going giving a length of flattened straw followed by a transition to a circular section. Unfortunately when I tried adding another circular section to produce a length of circular pipe Freecad crashed and trashed the fi...

Re: Help required with PartDesign AdditivePipe

wearyhacker already said he's looking for a straw with both ends flattened. There is no justification for making a polygon rather than a circle. I think this is what he wants. As I wrote previously, it's rather simplified. I ended up doing half of it in a PD Body then doing a Part Mirror then Part ...

Re: Help required with PartDesign AdditivePipe

All sections should have the same number of segments. By segments are you referring to the number of lines between vertices in the sketch. That is what I was trying to achieve. Unfortunately, mea culpa, the version of the file I posted here seems to have lost the end caps. I suspect that was relate...

Re: Help required with PartDesign AdditivePipe

Just try to add a multisection pipe from Flat to Straw along Path I found a missing coincident constraint on the x axis for sketch Straw. I could not edit your sketch Flat for some unknown reason, so replaced it with a closed rectangle Sketch015. AdditiveSweep still fails but AdditiveLoft was succe...

Help required with PartDesign AdditivePipe

Hello, I am a newbie to FreeCAD and I am struggling with getting PartDesign AdditivePipe to work with multiple profile sections. My FreeCAD version is 0.17.13522. Every time I add a section to to the multi section list and then exit the editor I get a Input Error - TopoDS:Face. I have attached a sim...
