Re: Shaded view in drawing

Hallo Roland, Thank you for your answer. Do you use any additional Plugin or additional Workbench? I do not have the entry "View Style" in my Property listing (combo view), when clicking on a view. Could you please please insert a hole into your demo-part to see if it is really shaded and not only f...

Shaded view in drawing

Hallo, Is it possible to insert also a shaded view (like when working on the part, not necessarily rendered with e.g. povray) in the into a drawing. This would sometimes give better understanding about 3D parts (especially with colors). At least inserting an image would be good at the beginning. The...

Re: Bug when selecting Sketcher on face

Thank you very much, DeepSOIC! Now I understand where the circular dependency is coming from (see the dependency graph).... from the "create an edge linked to an external geometry" -feature in the sketcher. There I use an edge from a other pocket. Is there any chance to avoid such dependencies, warn...

How to correctly mirror a Part Design Feature

Hallo, This post is regarding how to correctly use the mirror "Create a mirrored feature"-feature of FreeCAD. In the attached .fcstd is a pocket on one side of a cube (along the x-axis, see also the attached .png) which I want to mirror onto the opposite side of the cube (along the -x-axis). How is ...

Re: Bug when selecting Sketcher on face

Thank you for your fast reply, triplus. But what does this now mean for me or my model. I have several pads and cuts which are dependent on some variables in a Spreadsheet but I do not see this cyclic dependency. On the other hand, how could I find this dependency, clear it, avoid it or intercept it...

Bug when selecting Sketcher on face

Hallo, I try to add sketcher for a pocket in the attached model. But the sketcher turns the view not perpendicular to the selected face*) but instead starts the sketcher in top view. Can anyone confirm this? I wonder if it is a bug in the software or in the model. Is it possible to cleanup rebuild t...

Re: Pattern or mirror for Part-Elements

Hallo Mark, I have attached a file where I used the sprial-geometry-primitive from OpenSCAD-WB. I need to design "sprial" springs from the middle part to the outer frame. The three springs are created from one sweep-element (Part-WB) with a polar-Draft-WB-Array. Until now I have several 'single' par...

Result in activated document

Hallo, I saw that the calculix results are added to the last activated document. If there are two Freecad-documents open in one Freecad and one includes FEM components the results from ccx are added to the last activated Freecad-document. If there are any questions maybe the attached screenshot help...
