Re: Extrude's taper angle does not work

This has been happening to me a lot lately and because the taper angle is an important part of my project, I am getting very frustrated that this error is halting the completion of the design.

See here for all the details:

Re: Extrude function and taper value error

OS: macOS 10.14 Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit Version: 0.18.16117 (Git) I'm getting closer to figuring out the error, but not sure what to do about it yet. DBSnSwordFB01.png I think it's something to do with this seam in the middle when generating the facebinder. The previous ...

Re: Extrude function and taper value error

I tried that approach: DBSnSword01TipError02.png As soon as any angle is entered, the function fails to operate. It can extrude a column upwards and that's all it can do. If a degree angle can't be entered, then this function won't work. I'm uncertain if it's related, but the sword edges of this bla...

Extrude function and taper value error

I finally got a working version of my sword tip after much trial and error (mostly error!): DBBaseSword03Tip.png Now that that excruciatingly frustrating task was behind me, I started work on my Sn variant of the sword and attempted to repeat the technique I had just learned: DBSnSword01TipError.png...

Re: Point alignment via text values

To get a small pyramid and attach it to the diamond end of the upper sword blade, that is the goal. I cannot comprehend why that geometric was not included in the shape creator. I can't form the blade as one shape because of a design feature I intentionally incorporated: DGswordSep.png The section m...

Re: Point alignment via text values

Yes, unfortunately, this sword again. :oops: It's frustrating because this one simple design impediment is the one thing holding me back from finishing the project. As near as I can tell, the other design elements will be easy to add if I can just get over this roadblock. Here's as close as I've got...

Re: Point alignment via text values

I tried experimenting with sketches a few times, never quite got around to mastering it. I don’t recall exactly why it wasn’t for me, but I think the variables and design configurations was a bit more complex then simply drawing a shape and moving the points around. That’s why I prefer to deal in 3D...

Re: Point alignment via text values

This is what it looks like on the attempt that came closest: 2A415D41-771D-4AC7-82E9-90852E5D9838.jpeg This still wasn’t successful because each time I tried to align point A2 to point B2, point A1 to point B1 was unaligned and so on all the way to point A4 to point B4. What is shown above is the su...
