Re: Pocket path generated only on face depth if object is reversed or origin moved

Hi, I pulled from source tonight (I use the tortoiseGit shell extension) with a number of merges by Sliptonic into master, including what looks like a fix for the path generation. Unfortunately, it doesn't change the bad code generation - all cuts, which are supposed to end up at z = -12.7, immediat...

Re: Pocket path generated only on face depth if object is reversed or origin moved

Hi umill,

I always use TortoiseGit and just pull from master. Trying to pull from a branch other than master causes it to hang. I'll have to wait until somebody integrates it into master :( Thanks for verifying that's it's a bug and not my senility kicking in early...

Re: Help on using dependency graph requested

Thanks for the input!I keep falling into deep potholes of ignorance :( I've attached an image of what the finished model is supposed to be: FinishedDesign.png The point of the exercise is to move the trough 2mm closer to the "front", where the vertical straps are extruded. I thought that by attachin...

Re: Help on using dependency graph requested

Thanks for the reply :) 1) You didn't mention the dependency graph at all. I take it you didn't use it to find the problem, just from experience assumed the feature preceding the mainplate was the issue. Is it a general rule of thumb that the preceding feature is always the cause of the 'multiple so...

Re: Seeking help on modifying an existing model - part 1

DrMacro: Thanks for the reply. I often use the reference tool you mention, but I find that I very often can't select the sketch I want to reference. The limitations on what can be selected are not documented anyplace I can find. I may (reluctantly) need to look at the source code to figure out what ...

Re: Seeking help on modifying an existing model - part 1

Thanks for the insights, folks! Before anything else - my current plan is to watch many of the video tutorials referenced from the forum page, particularly those demonstrating 0.19, which is the only version I use (built from source). I am still climbing a steep learning curve, I'm afraid; my backgr...

Re: Seeking help on modifying an existing model - part 1

"You have used generated geometry to attach down tree sketches. Thus invoking the wrath of the topological naming gods when you attempt to modify up tree sketches. This is recommended against." I'm sorry, I've never heard of this before. Could you please explain? How do I design a model so that feat...

Seeking help on modifying an existing model - part 2

HI, This is just to add the "after" image I couldn't add to the initial post (evidently there's a 5 file limit): AirAssistTrough_afterMovingTrough.png While the sketch in white is shown correctly aligned, the top plate has been moved so the trough is almost all the way towards the back of the plate,...
