Re: Pocket within pocket

Amazing. Thank you ever so much. I just went through the steps again trying to understand where I went wrong and this time it worked! Are you saying that when creating the second pocket, I must have had the Pad selected in the tree to the left and not the first Pocket? Was that the mistake? Your we...

Re: Pocket within pocket

OK, you must of misunderstood something in that video because he builds each new feature on the last and not some feature from further back in the models history. Looking at your model, I can now say for sure that it is forked, or containing 2 branches of history. Part design parts should usually on...

Re: Converting Lines to Wire to Face...

I found the problem, Line044, which for whatever reason was not wanting to play nice with the others Mark, there's a tiny gap between Line043 and Line044. I just traced over the line segments with a Draft WB > DWire, using Endpoint Snap (only), starting at the upper right going anti-clockwise so th...

Re: Converting Lines to Wire to Face...

Hi Bill. First, I have to say... DXF - pfffffft. :roll: Anyway, since that is what you have to work with, I'll tell you what I did to get the shape in question into a wire. First I built up the wire from a few edges at a time until I found the problem, Line044, which for whatever reason was not want...

Re: Pocket within pocket

Hello sharevari, Welcome to FreeCAD and the forum. You have both Pocket, (now past history in the linear time line) and Pocket001,(current history) both visible. and while I can't tell for sure, because you did not attach your file of the problem to your post, the model is probably forked, meaning i...

Macros can do it. Not sure about if OCC itself offers it...

Golden Spiral.

Anyone know if there are any provisions in OCE/OCCT to construct a golden spiral? FreeCAD easily does linear spirals, but can that be set up to do a spiral based on the golden ratio? Nothing important, just curious. I know OpenSCAD can do it, and is used to create nautilus shells for 3D printing and...

Lower your tessellation setting. E dit > P references... > Part Design > Shape view tab. Only thing I know to get it to look better. Default os 0.5%, try 0.05% and see if it makes a difference. Note that this will affect the speed of your boolean operations. I don't know if Coin has a "smoothing" op...

Re: Adding an angle draft to a face with rounded edges

Note to Admins - Maybe it's time for us so called "gurus" to have our own class on the forum with the allowances for a few more attachments per post or some such. It would make things easier when explaining things to new and lesser informed users. It's a good idea. :) When I was an admin I had no l...
