Re: Mac pre-release download way behind Windows version

@brusk, thanks a ton for trying to provide more recent builds. I ran into a cut issue that only exists in the outdated Mac OS X build, so I built FreeCAD from the latest git source this morning. In doing so, I believe I found a solution to what I think is blocking @peterl94's travis ci builds and se...

Re: Yet another "threading" post by a FreeCAD NOOB...

Thanks everyone. I loaded FreeCAD into a Ubuntu VM and the cut worked as expected so this is either an old bug that has been resolved in the newer builds or a Mac OS X bug. This inspired me to compile from source... I have everything working except libarea... I was able to resolve the issue blocking...

You may have to rotate the helix about its axis a small amount. Thread cuts are always a bit tricky and not guaranteed.
D'oh! Here it is :)

Re: Yet another "threading" post by a FreeCAD NOOB...

Wow everyone, thanks for prompt and constructive replies! The overlapping helix was clearly the root cause but now my resulting solid has air gaps... It is almost like my swept helix is filled so when I cut it from the shaft, it removes the shaft material all the way to the surface of the shaft pock...

Yet another "threading" post by a FreeCAD NOOB...

I am new to FreeCAD and am trying to do what I think should be fairly simple but I am completely stumped how to subtract a helix swept with an ISO thread sketch from a shaft. I am not making this request without having done proper due diligence - I have watched every threading tutorial and other tut...

Re: Involute Gear... crashes FreeCAD 0.16 pre on Mac OS X

I meant this github https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.16-pre I'm new to FreeCAD so I didn't realize there were two github locations. I downloaded and tested peterl94's github build and it works so that confirms that the issue is specific to brusk's build process or change sets betwe...

Re: Involute Gear... crashes FreeCAD 0.16 pre on Mac OS X

so I am curious, which unit tests apply to the involute curve part instantiation Can you also try with the build from github? These problems may be specific to this build. Yes, the github build is the version that I used in reporting the issue above so it is quite possible that the issue is specifi...

Re: Involute Gear... crashes FreeCAD 0.16 pre on Mac OS X

Searching the web, I found resources on running Unit Tests and logging. I ran "All Tests" with --write-log and the following was reported in FreeCAD.log and stdout accordingly: Log: Active view is Unnamed : 1[*] (at 0x7feca3b2b860) Log: Active document is DraftTest (at 0x7fecc1b7ca00) Log: Checking ...

Re: Involute Gear... crashes FreeCAD 0.16 pre on Mac OS X

Hi! No idea, just a random thought. Try dropping in a Part Cube, before creating the gear... Just tried the suggested work-around but to no avail. On Mac OS X, the system will catch the crash log for a crashing process however FreeBSD is crashing in such a catastrophic fashion that the log isn't av...

Involute Gear... crashes FreeCAD 0.16 pre on Mac OS X

I am very new to FreeCAD and am currently exploring it because I need a bit more precision in my 3D parts than what 123D Design offers... A key impetus for exploring FreeCAD is to create custom gears however when I launch the "involute gear..." widget under 0.16, it suddenly crashes without a crash ...
