Re: Tool Selection?

OK. I now see the step in the closer pocket. When I tried pocketing your model I got error messages about b-splines, so it is hard to say what might have caused the step to occur. Errors can cause strange, seemingly unrelated effects. I see that mlampert has just made a fix for the b-splines. New Wi...

Re: Tool Selection?

Thanks for the explanation. I mistakenly thought the "3D Pocket" was the ancient version, not the recent version from the past several months.

Now it makes sense to me.

Re: Tool Selection?

Josh, I may not fully understand what you are trying to show. The only picture I see shows two pockets that look the same. The small residue around the holes is due to tolerances, and perhaps due to a somewhat flexible material. The newly named "3D pocket" does indeed clear out the entire pocket are...

Re: Section with hole :/ [BUG?]

I did not see any problems at all with your first file (ProvaLoftParametricoSection.FCStd). The second file (Sections.fcstd) showed the gaps, but a "Force Recompute" fixed them OS: Windows 7 Word size of OS: 64-bit Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit Version: 0.17.12321 (Git) Build type: Release Branch: ma...

Re: Tool Selection?

I used LinuxCNC as the post processor. My guess is I'm veering away from intended use somehow. Josh, I doubt that you are "veering". I never see an offered extension when I use the linuxcnc postprocessor. I always need to add the .ngc to my files. I do not believe any of the postprocessors automati...

Re: Tool Selection?

One other question that's plagued me--and it's not Path specific--is what's the deal with origins in Freecad? I'm used to old 2D CAD where I define the XY origin and EVERYTHING is with respect to that--directly, or indirectly... In Freecad--and I get it may be a 3D CAD thing--most sketches will be ...

Re: Path:UI:Typo_???

I have seen this a number of times recently. However, it is not repeatable for me, and it usually comes after I have made some modification to the base object. I attributed the error to the general instability of local/global scope linking operations seen over the past month or so. If I save and reo...

Overly aggressive default values

The recent adjustments to default values for depths and height seem to be a bit too aggressive. I can no longer change the clearance height or the safe height at all. If I change a height in the task panel it appears to be accepted, but it reverts to the default as soon as "Apply" or "OK" is selecte...

Re: Improvement of rectangular selection

I can't get Sketcher to select the whole line/circle/element when I only box a part of it, no matter from where I start the selection. That is what I was looking for. That sort of behavior is a choice made by the program designers. I have some graphics-related programs that work on the "touch" meth...
