Re: Problem : creating a vertical plane with rotation

Just for information, if somebody follows this path. After creating the plane attached to XZ, to rotate it on the Z axis of the body, in the "placement" dialog box, axis Y must be set as the rotation axis. I suppose the rotation is defined relatively to the plane's axes instead of those of the body....

No real bug here. You select no reference -> your datum plane is not attached. This is even told to user by the small purple icon you see in the Tree View (in your pictures, overlaid with the datum plane icon).
The one for which you want to open a ticket.

Re: besoin d'aide

Je suis curieux de nature. Tu vas fabriquer un rail en plastique, avec les encoches pour guider les voitures. Cool. Et tu fais comment pour l'alimentation, si ça n'est pas un secret de fabrication ? Tu colles du papier alu de tablette de chocolat sur les flancs de l'encoche ?

Re: Problem : creating a vertical plane with rotation

OK thanks. First method is simple and OK. Not documented in the wiki and my "too fast" method not signaled as an error in the python console :(
Second method : I will see later. Glad if I could help, unwillingly, to show a real bug.

Edit : What a mess : images come in reverse order of their insertion in the text, all placed after.

Re: Problem : creating a vertical plane with rotation

I try reproduce the conditions of this problem. Here is a simplified design. testXZ.FCStd I create a datumPlane, selecting to attach on XZ plane. planXZ1.jpg I get this : the plane is visible on the XY plane instead of XZ. planXZ2.jpg I said "oops there must be a bug, I can't attach on XZ plane". Od...

Re: 3d printable spool (for Helmoltz coils...)

I downloaded 0.19pre to test this design. Had some problems with 7-zip : doesn't handle correctly the WIn10 alias from "program files" to "programmes" in the french version. Fortunately 0.19 can be installed on any user directory. Lot of improvements from 0.18 to 0.19 in the PartDesign WB. I could d...

Re: 3d printable spool (for Helmoltz coils...)

I understand that to use 0.19 (appImage) I need Linux. I am with Windows 10... too many apps on windows, a single computer, no time to go to a dual boot solution, not enough neurons to shift from Windows to Linux environment : I need them for other tasks. I will wait for a 0.19 on WIndows.
